Just getting started with EDI?
Our expert team will guide you every step of the way.

We make it easy for you and your vendors to eliminate supply chain inefficiencies with the industry’s most trusted EDI solution.

Processing orders manually is painful and costly… But it doesn’t have to be.

EDI for retailers includes solutions to automate paper-based processes and efficiently fulfill orders for any sales channel.

Is your team bogged down in paper, fax or emailed orders? Do you struggle with manually reconciling orders with invoices and ship notices? Save time, reduce costs and end needless errors with EDI.

SPS Commerce helps you streamline and automate your order-to-invoice cycle with your vendors, and efficiently fulfill orders for any sales channel including brick-and-mortar retail, e-commerce, buy online/pickup in store, and drop shipping.

Unlike other EDI providers, we handle all the technical details on your behalf—including EDI testing, spec changes, and map updates, so you can focus on running your business, not on managing your EDI system.

EDI in a snap.

“An incredibly easy tool to implement EDI with vendors that require it. Using something like SPS is a great tool to use in the interim if you plan on implementing EDI directly with vendors. The price is fair as well.”

– Nick L, 1/17/18

  • EDI integration without all the work.

    "SPS was just a natural fit. With one integration to its retail network, we could connect with all of our EDI vendors, which makes it much easier to gain scale. The problem with other systems was that they required us to have a unique connection with every single vendor, and the maintenance and ability to keep that in order was impossible."

    Alan Blackford, COO, Thos. Baker

  • Outsourcing enables faster EDI execution.

    "As I got ready to start thinking about how I was going to enable the general merchandise side of the business, which has a much longer supply chain and is very, very different from the book side, I realized we were not going to be able to execute (EDI) fast enough. We didn’t have a lot of the core competencies in-house."

    Rob Spence, Director of Supply Chain Vendor Performance, Indigo Books and Music

  • Implementing EDI with limited IT resources.

    "We had the confidence that SPS Commerce could enable our vendors (with EDI). Their established relationships with many of our vendors made the process very easy. (Our vendors) have done electronic fulfillment, such as EDI, with other retailers and SPS Commerce and have also seen positive results. SPS Commerce’s delivery and cost model is flipping the standard EDI model on its head."
