What Is EDI Order Processing
Electronic data interchange (EDI) is a system that enables the electronic – computer-to-computer – exchange of orders and documents with your trading partners. It lets you quickly, accurately, and securely transmit purchase orders, invoices, shipping notices, and more, all in a standardized format. EDI reduces manual errors while streamlining the entire ordering process from start to finish. EDI automation involves:
- Buying organizations – distributors, grocers, retailers – send electronic POs to suppliers
- Suppliers receive electronic POs
- Suppliers then send buyers electronic acknowledgement of orders and invoices
EDI eliminates the outdated manual process of using phone, email, and fax to transfer information. Though initially designed for wholesale orders, EDI can be implemented with dropship and direct-to-consumer orders, too.
Standard EDI documents include:
940 – Warehouse Shipping Order
943 – Warehouse Stock Transfer Shipment Advice
944 – Warehouse Stock Transfer Receipt Advice
945 – Warehouse Shipping Advice
946 – Delivery Information Message
947 – Warehouse Inventory Adjustment Advice
997 – Functional Acknowledgement
856 – Advance Shipment Notice/Manifest
850 – Purchase Order
810 – Invoice Transactions
* Note, we can support virtually any document you need
