A Robust System to Drive Larger Businesses

Data Communication Solutions (DCS) Consultants have successfully completed some of the most complex EDI integration using Sterling B2B Integrator™ (B2Bi). We were the first to install Sterling B2B Integrator on Linux in 1994. Our proven methods make this possible. We’ve made it faster and easier to build, deploy and manage integrated business-to-business (B2B) processes across diverse business partner communities.

DCS will provide you with a no-cost assessment for integrating this powerful tool. We’ll review your processes and provide you with a timeline and task list to get the most out of your B2B™ system.

Your integration will occur more swiftly because B2Bi has adapters for popular ERP systems such as Infor, Microsoft, Oracle’s E-Business Suite R12 and SAP ERP. The intermediate files match, yet anticipate 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
  4. Home

Templates contain the data transmission protocol too. Lastly, the Business Process Modeling Language (BPML), which also must be customized for each customer, is ready to be adapted.

B2Bi works equally well with classical EDI (X12 and EDIFACT) and standardized XML (GS1 or OAGi). When combined with FTPS, unique effective, reliable, fast, secure and economical exchange can be set for a Trading Partner or message.

SB2BI works well on the cloud, so you can eliminated the cost of converting to an EDI network. DCS’ EDI Specialists know the steps to connect a cloud instance to customers.

Planning is the key. Our ERP conversion service is standardized to ensure a thorough, quick, and economical solution. The knowledge of how the business operates pays off handsomely with assistance from DCS Consultants. Our mutual goal is to ensure that you will be self-reliant to add customers, comments and other processes.

New B2Bi users will find a week or so of training helpful. DCS’ EDI training service ensures you know how to utilize B2B’s functionality and benefits as well as help you avoid the pitfalls associated with SI.

Having an on-call group of DCS Consultants is a welcome comfort when working with new technology, especially when it involves critical business processes.

A dedicated DCS Consultant and designated back-up ensures that your unique processes are not disturbed. This personal service ensures no disruption to highly visible EDI.

The first step is easy: contact us for your no-cost assessment.
