TROY, Mich., September 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Algo, a provider of digital transformation services and supply chain software, has successfully modernized the way Microsoft receives business data from Amazon.
rusty stisha, business program manager for Microsoft’s data modernization initiative, expressed his appreciation for Algo’s agility, accuracy and professionalism. “Algo’s technical and functional experts did an excellent job. They quickly integrated the data from the new Amazon APIs and also ensured that the data was complete and accurate. I am impressed with the clear and communicative way in which they are engaged with us, and how quickly they delivered the project.”
As a global hardware supplier, Microsoft received order information and related details from Amazon via electronic data interchange (EDI) feeds. Algo helped Microsoft replace these scheduled data pushes with on-demand data requests using Amazon’s Selling Partner API (SP-API). Algo successfully implemented SP-API for all Microsoft geographies in 5 weeks.
Organizations have been using EDI for B2B digital communication for decades. The sender typically transmits data in daily or weekly batches, making near real-time updates impossible. Not only do application programming interfaces (APIs) such as SP-API support near real-time updates; they also reduce the costs and complexity of data exchange.
Algo reduced manual data management efforts by setting up automatic SP-API flows from Amazon to Microsoft. During data integration, Algo performed a comprehensive data validation that led to the identification and recovery of significant lost sales.
Emilie Slavik, product manager at Algo, cited the collective experience of the implementation team as a key factor in the success of the project. “Integrating API data for all Microsoft regions was a challenge,” she said, “but the expertise of our data engineers and supply chain experts helped us ensure that we meet project deadlines without compromising data quality. timely reports on Amazon’s sales and operating data, and will also provide a solid foundation for future digital transformation initiatives. »
