Streamline with an end-to-end JD Edwards EDI integration

by | Jun 18, 2019 | Retailers, Suppliers

As the retail industry and the supply chain that feeds it evolves and becomes more complicated, automation becomes necessary for more and more businesses. Automating processes through EDI, or Electronic Data Interchange, can offer some of the best return on investment for your efforts – but only if your EDI is done right. When EDI is optimized and managed at its best, it supports rapid, efficient and accurate communication with trading partners, as well as a variety of vital systems found within a typical organization.

JD Edwards EDI Integration

With EDI integration for JD Edwards ERP, communication both within a company and with its trading partners can be sped up and simplified. Business documents such as orders, invoices, delivery notes, inventory updates and more can all be exchanged from department to department and business to business. Benefits of JD Edwards EDI Integration include:

  • Lowered costs – There is a reduced need for data entry and auditing personnel with an EDI solution. The data is transferred seamlessly into and out of your JD Edwards EDI integrated system, decreasing the cost and manual processes.
  • Streamlined processes– Fewer manual interventions means that transactions can be processed more quickly and efficiently. With JD Edwards EDI integration, the turnaround time and speed for orders, invoices and other documents are dramatically accelerated, increasing your business’s ability to compete.
  • Enhanced data integrity and accuracy – Information automatically transmitted across systems and directly with trading partners reduces or eliminates the need for re-keying information, which averts data entry errors. Where errors do occur, EDI automation assists with identifying where the problem is occurring so it can be fixed fast.

EDI solutions can be an incredible tool for businesses, but not all EDI providers are the same. In particular for this ERP, many EDI solutions don’t have an elegant solution for passing transactions through JD Edwards System 47 database tables. Anything less than an end-to-end solution that addresses this feature can result in complications that you’ll be expected to address on your own.

You may need to hire additional staffing with specialized EDI training as well as invest in additional infrastructure and software. Even with top notch staff, the wrong EDI system could stall processes and cost you money when trading partner requirements or EDI maps change.

With a full-service EDI integration for JD Edwards, documents and communications flow through systems and to trading partners smoothly and automatically, even when requirements unexpectedly change.
