Web-EDI Integration

Research indicates that 80% of the companies that have set up electronic integration with their partners only actually use this facility with approximately 12% of their supply chain. We often hear that the majority of companies face slow adoption of B2B connectivity due to the presence of traditional, complicated and expensive point-to-point connections. This situation limits rapid deployment as traditional point-to-point connections require specific message formats, mappings and complex technical connections to each external business partner's system.

However, in today's environment of ever-extending supply chains, responsiveness requires open accessibility in order to share information with any business partner anywhere in the world. The constraints of older and inflexible integration technologies prevent the expansion that will be required in the long term. The main bottleneck is that many supply chain networks also deal with numerous business partners that lack the in-house technical capabilities required for collaboration through B2B integration methods or, worse still, continue to work with non-automated (paper-based) processes. What if your business partner does not have the technical capability for B2B integration but still needs to be connected to your supply chain?

Web-EDI allows your partners to communicate electronically with your Supply Chain Management System without the extra burden of having to define, create, establish and maintain the dedicated data-based messaging system that is required for B2B integration. With web-EDI integration, your partner simply uses an internet-based application with a normal user interface. This web-EDI application can be accessed via any device (PC, laptop, tablet, etc.) that can run normal internet browsers, so no special software, tools or utilities are required. These web-EDI applications, called portals, receive data from your connected back-end system and present this information in a clear user-friendly format. Typical examples are screens that display information concerning Forecast Levels, Order Levels, Dispatches / Shipments, Inventory Levels, Invoices, etc.
