Strong Capability

Biz works equally well with classical EDI (X12 and EDIFACT) and standardized XML (GS1 or OAGi). For XML documents unique connections are needed. Setting up connections that pull XML directly from an URL is straight forward but not trivial. When combined with FTPS, unique, effective, reliable, fast, secure, and economical exchange can be set for a Trading Partner or message. EDI/E-Commerce and application integration – using the same tool.

Your business application’s EDI/B2B Gateway shortens the ETL configuration. They create an intermediate file for each document that anticipates customization of header and detail records. Unfortunately, use of adapters does not complete the link. Customization is needed for each customer. DCS has templates for industry EDI protocols, such as mass merchant Target’s 4 types of P.O. (850): 1) Distribution Center, 2) DC “cross-docked”, 3) Store, and 4) Home). Templates contain the data transmission protocol too. Lastly, business processes must be customized for each customer to ensure their unique requirements are met.

When you need to add non-X12 distributors, mom and pop vendors, parcel carriers, and other focused data exchange, we suggest you consider BizManager for messaging, mapping, transformation, tracking and auditing B2B transactions. Built to leverage the Internet and designed to incorporate and simplify industry standards, BizManager ensures the uninterrupted flow of information and direct, secure transport of all types of data and documents.
