FXR had already been using Celigo’s CloudExtend Excel for NetSuite and decided to see what else they could do with Celigo to automate processes between Magento 1 and NetSuite. That was the first of many integrations FXR would undertake with Celigo over the years.
“Our website was old and filled with patches and manual work, so we agreed that we need to re-platform,” said John De Leon, NetSuite ERP Administrator at FXR Racing “And when we were putting the proposal together, the recommendation was Celigo, which we were already using.”
The team quickly expanded into other integrations. Some of the company’s large B2B orders were coming via NuOrder. The challenge was that NuOrder sends the entire catalog of over 65,000 SKUs and six different currencies every time it was updated. That meant that the previous update might still be running before a new one starts, causing orders to be skipped or go missing during the process.
FXR created an integration using Celigo between NuOrder and FTP. They then used Celigo to recognize the changes from the previous file and only update the delta inside of NetSuite, saving a lot of time in the process. “It was huge,” said De Leon.
Next, the company was having significant issues with a global EDI provider, who didn’t provide the flexibility and customization FXR needed to run their operations. They started by using Celigo to connect two European 3PLs, Picker and Nyce, using XML. “We went that route and went live in November, and that’s been going well,” said De Leon.
Finally, FXR leverages Celigo for NetSuite-NetSuite automations that typically are done via SuiteScript. “We use Celigo to automate item records with a field,” said De Leon. “We also do it for intercompany transactions because all transactions for Europe go through our FXR Sweden first before being fulfilled by the local subsidiary.”
