Trading Partner Integration (EDI)
Implementing a trading partner integration or EDI (electronic data interchange) solution for purchase orders, sales orders, advanced ship notifications, or automatic invoicing probably was not high on your priority list when you opened your business. As your business grows and you begin supplying to larger customers such as, big box retailers like Wal-Mart, Target, and Home Depot, you run into a demand from these customers to interact with them via EDI documents.
Accellos has more than 17 years of experience assisting companies with EDI and shipping compliance. Our employees understand not only EDI, but your customer’s communication requirements, giving them a breadth of experience that translates into better products, better services, and better solutions that serve your customers. Two of our EDI solutions are designed specifically for either Microsoft Dynamics® GP or Microsoft Dynamics® AX. Because they share the same code base as the Dynamics products, it provides the tightest level of integration available, familiar user interface, and seamless data flow between the products.
Historically orders and invoicing would take a great deal of time to process and ship. An order would be mailed out, the order would be received (and hopefully filled the same day), an invoice would be mailed, and finally payment could be mailed and received. This process could take months to complete. The Accellos set of EDI solutions provide you with a better, more streamlined way of transmitting vital documents, such as EDI ship notices and UCC-128 bar code labels, to your customers.
With Accellos’ configurable business rules customers can accommodate unique trading partner requirements and manage most EDI documents by exception only. Accellos customers typically experience large gains in productivity and are often able to reduce or deploy resources to other areas of their business. In addition, our customers’ ability to meet the compliance requirements of their customers reduces charge-backs and helps to improve vendor scores.
