Hire EDI Developer for Successful EDI Integration

EDI integration services stand for Electronic Data Interchange and refer to the process of exchanging the data electronically between the company service-provider and a client. By conducting the operations in an electronic mode, businesses save time on the processing, reduce potential errors that might occur, and create smooth cooperation with partners.

How Do EDI Integration Solutions Work?

EDI, as a fully integrated solution, is applied in every industry that deals with information transitions; these include but are not limited to manufacturing, healthcare, pharmaceutical, eCommerce, and retail domains. Since all the data of an organization is stored in the ERP system, companies find ERP developers to extract this data and integrate it into EDI. 

Instead of using fax or email information exchange, which involves people, thus increases the occurrence of error and slows down the process, the documents are transferred in EDI document format through the system. There are 3 steps of EDI integrations:

Step 1: Preparation

Before any invoices, shipment, or other purchase-related information is sent, the company properly collects and organizes it. This process may include manual entry, extraction of data from the database, data conversion (changing the format from doc to PDF or other execution), and adding other components to make the document ready to go. 

Step 2: Create the EDI Format

EDI software development translates the internal data into the EDI standard. The software allows processing a big number of documents that speed up the transaction and boosts the process of data exchange. 

Step 3: Send EDI Documents

In this phase, you are to choose the way your documents are connected to your partner: via AS2 or other preferable IP, directly to your partner’s EDI network, or combine two options depending on the volume of the documents that need to be exchanged.
