"The new onboarding of customers and suppliers is much easier and more effective for me. The monitoring interface is simple and clear to use. And of course the overall costs are better for us now."

EDI can mean a lot of effort...

Electronic data interchange (EDI) has become a critical part of the success of many companies. EDI enables the automated sending and receiving of B2B business documents such as invoices or delivery bills, thus significantly reducing input errors and making communication along the supply chain faster and more cost-effective.

This involves:

  • Connection of all partners to the own company by means of EDI protocols for message transmission (onboarding)
  • Setting up message conversions for translation between ERP and EDI format (mapping)
  • Ensuring the correct transmission of EDI messages (routing & monitoring)
  • Rapid correction of transmission errors, e.g. due to incorrect content or delivery problems (error resolution)

The operation of a local EDI converter means that internal teams have to perform all these tasks themselves, which takes a lot of effort. Fully managed EDI removes this burden, allowing internal teams to focus on more value-adding tasks.

…but EDI can also be quite simple!

Many companies replace their local EDI converters with fully managed EDI from a specialised EDI service provider like ecosio. With a fully managed solution, all EDI connections and ongoing operations (onboarding, mapping, routing, monitoring, etc.) are completely taken over and managed by the service provider. This relieves companies of the burden on their internal teams and allows them to benefit from flexible, scalable and future-proof EDI.

Local EDI converter

Taking over EDI internally requires a high degree of operational effort and EDI expertise. Data exchange is often error-prone and inefficient.

  • High acquisition costs
  • High personnel expenditure
  • Independent mapping, onboarding and monitoring
  • EDI with expiration date (end of software maintenance)

Moving from a local converter to fully managed EDI

On Demand Webinar

Many companies are switching from local EDI converters to fully managed EDI to reduce the workload on internal teams. In our webinar “Moving from a local converter to fully managed EDI” we will show you how to do this.

  • EDI Migration to Fully Managed EDI in practice
  • Successful project coordination and testing processes
  • Choosing the right EDI service provider
  • What still matters after the go-live

Future-proof EDI

EDI requirements are constantly changing. As companies grow, the desire to connect to new partners is inevitable. In turn, VAN connections such as X.400 may become necessary, as may the need to connect suppliers without their own EDI infrastructure via Web EDI. Meanwhile, e-invoice requirements in different countries must be also be fulfilled (e.g. XRechnung in Germany or FatturaPA in Italy). Unfortunately, local EDI converters are ill suited to cope with such demands and place a high demand on internal teams.

ecosio takes over and optimises your EDI message exchange, no matter how you currently implement electronic data interchange (if at all). Migration to fully managed EDI is smooth, future-proof and requires minimal internal effort.
