Lux Group Handles Transaction Data With Smart Integration
Business is growing for Lux Group, an Australian pure-play e-commerce business offering single-category shopping, including experiences such as dining and entertainment, designer fashion and home goods, and luxury global travel packages. However, growing from 2 to 15 online brands in its first five years of operation caused the firm to outgrow its accounting and ERP operations software provider. Intent on effectively managing transactions with its nearly 7,000 vendors, Lux Group wanted to create a workflow capable of handling the entire vendor relationship lifecycle, from procurement to payment.
“We had effective startup systems, but quickly hit capacity from both a functional and operational perspective,” said Brett Raven, Lux Group’s chief technology officer. “This was based on growth fueled organically as well as through acquisitions. That need drove consideration of new architectures, and how the company would move data between the monolithic systems powering its core business and its new ERP system. The firm focused on establishing a growth infrastructure through an enterprise service bus (ESB) design, creating a manageable, long-term way to transform rough, unstructured data from its legacy-built application and push it into NetSuite for smooth vendor operations.”
Lux Group deployed Neuron ESB, a robust ESB optimized for the Microsoft .NET platform, as a means to transform a constant influx of unstructured data to NetSuite’s SOA message format.
“It was important to avoid complex user interfaces or more extreme coding requirements,” Raven said.
Lux Group decided its legacy system wouldn’t push data to the ESB platform, but rather data would instead be pulled as a means of enabling control and visibility as deployment unfolded. The ESB platform triggers orchestration and events, using an integrated NetSuite connector to synchronize vendor, purchase order, product and payment transactions.
