EDI Integration 911

Feb 15, 2018 10:30:40 AM / by Becca McCarthy

Have you just scored a deal to sell your goods to a big box retailer? Are you unsure of the next steps and need to be EDI compliant? Have no fear - that’s where we come in.

We help brands become the most reliable vendor in their network. Electronic data interchange (EDI) technology is the primary method of data exchange for many B2B suppliers and major retailers – with over 90 percent of Fortune 500 companies being EDI capable.

EDI is the structured transmission of data between organizations through electronic means. Logicbroker is an approved EDI provider for numerous channels and our easy to use cloud-based platform provides complete EDI compliance. With Logicbroker Certified Channels®, you can leverage pre-built commerce connections to Amazon, Wayfair, Jet, Best Buy, Sears, Walmart, Home Depot and many more for quick integrations. Once the end-to-end integration is complete, you can send POs and receive PO acknowledgements, invoices and ASNs with no manual data entry or logging in to vendor portals.

Beyond meeting you retail partner’s business requirements, EDI offers additional benefits including:

  • Eliminate Manual Data Entry: If you are spending just one hour a day manually processing orders, in a typical work year that will add up to 250 hours, which is simplified to 31 work days. With Logicbroker's modernized EDI platform solution, you get that month back. Our platform supports all native EDI documents for supply chain data integration to easily map to your trading partner’s EDI so documents flow effortlessly between the systems, eliminating the need for you to log into portals.
  • Improve Accuracy: Because EDI transmits documents electronically, the chances of re-keying errors are eliminated. As a result, you will save money because your orders are accurate, reducing costly returns from lost or incorrect orders. Manual touches are removed from the order equation, so all billing, shipping, and item information is correct. Shipping errors, especially for large items or pallets, can be very costly. By removing the chance of a costly error, you are an attractive company to do business with.
  • Work in Real Time: EDI enables you to work in near-real time, allowing inventory quantities to be up to date. For brands and retailers that are drop ship partners, working as close to real time is crucial. EDI can send inventory updates quickly and seamlessly eliminating out-of-stock orders and backordering. With these risks eliminated, customers will be satisfied with their retailer, and in turn, the retailer will be satisfied with their brands.

Logicbroker Certified Channels® are crafted with great care to ensure rapid deployment and reliable technology. We work hard to maintain your service-level agreements (SLAs) and avoid costly chargebacks. Ready to get started? Schedule a demo today.
