Starting with EDI


Optimise your B2B message traffic with fully managed EDI. Save time, money and stress by relieving internal teams and outsourcing data exchange to the experts.

Simplify your EDI

One connection for all partners

Electronic data exchange with suppliers and business partners is cost and resource intensive. Owing to the differences in standards and connection types, EDI processes can be error-prone and tend to create high maintenance effort for the IT department.

With ecosio Integration Hub you can send and receive all your EDI messages using just one single connection. Your messages are converted, signed, archived and delivered to their recipients using protocols as required. Naturally we factor in changes and updates of protocols and requirements.

24/7 Monitoring

Expansion of existing EDI processes

Digitization of business processes

100% EDI fit

Suppliers often shy away from establishing an EDI connection as they see it as a hassle. However, with Web EDI, even suppliers without their own ERP system can be easily connected. Further, such connections are becoming increasingly urgent to ensure suppliers are able to network with partners in a technically clever way. As we’re best placed to explain the many benefits of implementing our integrated B2B solution, we’re happy to convince your suppliers of the advantages of EDI. Our experts will take over the entire onboarding and roll-out process, showing your business partners just how useful their integration into a networked EDI system can be.

No matter what requirement your business partner has, we will develop a flexible solution to fit.

The ecosio Integration Hub also allows you to exchange all EDI formats and document types and to send messages in all protocols. The transmission of messages to and from your business partners is done centrally by the ecosio Integration Hub. All you need is a connection to the hub, we take over the connection of your partners. With a single connection you can reach all partners regardless of their specific EDI requirements. It’s that simple!

In-House EDI

Operating a local EDI converter is cost-intensive and laborious. The data exchange is often error-prone and inefficient. Commonly experienced issues include:
