EDI Setup for Any Business

There are many ways to set up your EDI. Implement EDI in-house, outsource it to an EDI provider or connect via API. Here is a closer look at your options.

In-house EDI

In-house EDI

Be prepared for a significant initial investment to set up an in-house EDI system. Businesses that opt for in-house EDI should also allocate resources to handle the following:

  • Software mapping and translation
  • Manual data entry & EDI portal management for each trading partner
  • Licensing (must be purchased annually for each EDI format or standard) & hardware (servers, backups, etc.)
  • Ongoing configuration, maintenance & IT support

Outsourced EDI

Outsourced EDI

Outsourcing EDI has numerous benefits over In-house options. With outsourced EDI, your business will only be required to handle:

  • Setup fees (generally small)
  • Monthly or annual subscription fee

Outsourcing reduces IT costs by eliminating software, hardware and resources for ongoing maintenance since your provider will handle the ongoing maintenance, including upgrades, map changes and retailer requirement changes.

Connecting via API

Connecting via API

Suppliers typically connect with e-commerce systems and marketplaces using APIs for direct-to-consumer orders. Many businesses also integrate APIs to:

  • Reduce manual data entry
  • Limit errors
  • Get data into and out of their business systems.

Our API services make it easy. Connect once to the SPS network and gain immediate access to pre-built APIs for our retail network of 105,000 companies.
