Proven Ways EDI Can Help You Improve Your Bottom Line!

  • Smooth and Automated EDI Steps – You have more time to scrutinize orders for correct prices and discounts.
  • Secure Internet Data Transmission (AS2) – Reduce the cost of pricey VANS by moving more traffic through the Internet. (About 3 hours per customer, after 8 hours setting and testing.)
  • More Customers – Change orders that are e-mailed or faxed to EDI, you reduce data entry time and provide more prompt order fills. (The time to add a customer for POs, Shipment Notices, and Invoices is about 4-12 hours for each customer; it varies widely.)
  • Web Forms – Sales Order data fetched from a Web form could come by EDI or XML and then automatically load into your ERP system.
  • PO Acknowledgements – Prompt notices of quantities shipped and the promised dates increases productivity. (The PO Ack. will be received and printed or emailed to them. The time estimate is about 8 hours for the first and then 2 hours each for subsequent vendor.)
  • Pick-up Notices – You are automatically alerted upon pick-up of inbound shipments. Your receiving dock and material planners can be ready for the shipment or call if they don’t get a notice. (The notice will be received and printed or emailed to them. The time estimate is about 8 hours for the first and then 2 hours each for subsequent.)

It is important that you first meet informally with the customer service, accounts receivable, receiving, or materials manager to learn their headaches. Then contact us for EDI solutions and a reliable estimate.
