White paper

Local EDI Converter vs. Managed EDI Service

A managed connection

Direct integration via API

By integrating our API in your ERP system, EDI processes are seamlessly incorporated in your user interface. Instead of a managed connection to ecosio Integration Hub, this connection is embedded as a native feature in your ERP system, allowing end-to-end monitoring in the user interface. There are several ERP systems which include ecosio API currently on the market. Find an overview here:
