Does your business need wholesale EDI technology?

Whether you’re new to EDI or just trying to automate your process, other wholesale and distribution companies trust SPS Commerce to be their wholesale EDI technology provider.

Wholesale’s secret weapon? Automation.

Your business already has technical systems for orders, inventory, and customer management. These systems are complex but vital to running your business.

You gain real efficiency when your systems can communicate seamlessly with the business systems of your wholesale partners or manufacturers – when your technology is speaking the same language as your partners’. That’s where EDI comes in.

The experts at SPS Commerce understand Wholesale EDI Technology!

Consumer retail already relies on EDI.

Most consumer retailers already require their suppliers to be EDI capable, and the wholesale distribution industry is now adopting the same strategy. From an operational standpoint, it makes sense because it reduces human errors while also streamlining the order process. With EDI, companies can fulfill orders faster, cheaper and with less mistakes.

Examples of how to use wholesale EDI technology:

  • Send invoices electronically and in a standard format.
  • Provide order and shipping confirmations to partners.
  • Create visibility to inventory in transit.
  • Automate three-way-match to validate invoices for payment.
  • Communicate shipment information ahead of time with the Advance Ship Notice (ASN).
  • Respond quickly to recalls with order traceability including lot numbers, data codes, pallet/carton tracking numbers.
  • Manage product content in a standard format through a web-based catalog.
