EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is a standard electronic format that transmits documents like purchase orders or invoices, replacing paper documents. Automating paper-based transactions saves time and money, prevents errors of manual entry, and is much better for the environment.
GCommerce makes it simple to exchange business documents electronically. This communication service, with the use of Microsoft Azure, allows trading partners to exchange business files, procurement transaction messages, and other important documents in real-time without expensive EDI software or the need for a traditional VAN (Value-Added Network).
Web Gateway works for large retailers and distributors. Your business can be fully EDI capable with no investment in system integration and a minimal monthly cost based on message volume. As auto parts information updates, your inventory information will update automatically. Price changes, auto parts number changes, inventory changes, and more.
Large national retailers and distributors may insist that their suppliers communicate with them the same way. Having EDI connectivity already may set you apart from your competition.Web Gateway from GCommerce will receive an EDI purchase order from your customer and convert it to a readable format for upload to your order entry system. This is all automated, leaving your team free to complete higher-value tasks. Web Gateway acknowledges receipt of the order in an EDI message. Then it prepopulates the Advance Shipping Notice (ASN) and Invoice so you can post the exceptions and send the documents in the EDI format required by the buyer.
