The EDI Training Process

Our EDI training curriculum is based on years of training expertise. Your DCS Consultant will tailor a customized training plan to meet your unique requirements, spanning the entire spectrum of EDI topics. Our sessions are more effective than generic training sessions, providing you with “hands on” assistance to topics you need and not the ones you don’t. It can be as basic as “What is EDI” to “Integrated Mapping.” Often, some troubleshooting within your system occurs simultaneously. This offers additional benefits in working through “real life” scenarios. After the training, you can call on DCS with follow up questions on an as needed basis.

A typical EDI training course syllabus includes:

  • Introductions and general concepts (data format and transmission method)
  • Listing of needs
  • Daily operations and EDI requirements for your company
  • Common problems and solutions
  • Map modifications and customization
  • Secure Internet data transmission (AS2 or FTPS)

Minimize the risks of disruption due to inexperience, unnecessary costs of travel and time away from work and avail yourself to on-going support with a DCS Consultant who provides the EDI training. To begin, contact DCS for your no-cost assessment.
