All Orders EDI Integration

EDI, which stands for Electronic data interchange, is a standard method for two (or more) seperate businesses using different inventory systems to exchange data.  The typical data that is exchanged are purchase orders,  invoices and shipping notices.    Each type of document has its own number.  For example purchase order is an 850.   Take a look at our article on EDI Documents for more information.   The other business you exchange data with is called a 'trading partner' which for most small businesses is either a customer like Target or a public warehouse that does your shipping and fulfillment.

By moving from a paper-based exchange of business document to one that is electronic, businesses enjoy major benefits such as reduced cost, increased processing speed, reduced errors and improved relationships with business partners.

NumberCruncher has developed the All Orders EDI Connector to facilitate the communication between All Orders and your EDI service provider.    Learn more about the EDI Connector.

What does an EDI service provider do?

EDI is complex to setup and maintain.  Luckily there are companies that specialize in helping small businesses get up and running with EDI. There are two primary things that EDI service providers do:

  • Mapping:  Your trading partners have a different system than you have.   Morever they refer to your products using the a different number than you do.  Put simply, your system and your trading partner's system speak different languages. An EDI service provider will create a 'Mapping' which is used to translate between your systems's 'language' and that of your trading partners.
  • Transmission: An EDI provider operates a sophisticated network in which they receive and send data between you and your trading partners.   Learn more about the typical EDI document flow.

Our All Orders EDI Connector has been created to work in tandem with our partner EDI service providers to provided better connectivity between ‘All Orders’ and your EDI service providers. This is just another one of our ventures for helping our clients experience better inventory, vendor and customer management services.
