Web EDI is a great choice for small and medium sized businesses that have either a low document volume or no ERP system of their own.
To use the Web EDI portal, all that is needed is Internet access, which makes the exchange of electronic business data with trading partners a straightforward and inexpensive process. Data is transferred in the correct EDI format via the EDI platform eXite®, ensuring that all electronic business documents are safely delivered and received.
Large businesses with an existing EDI infrastructure can additionally use Web EDI to reach small companies via EDI. This can take the form of a customized online portal for non-EDI-using partners, who will still benefit from more efficient and transparent order and delivery processes.
The benefits of Web EDI
- No need to install anything
- Ready for immediate use
- Electronic handling of the entire order-to-cash process
- Integrated master data administration
- Very user-friendly
- Export, print and download in PDF format
- Multi-language option
- Multi-industry solution
Web EDI for the FMCG industry
In the FMCG industry, the demand for innovative, sustainable, and regional products is higher than ever. This explains why large retail stores now offer space to small suppliers and start-ups. In most cases, smooth collaboration requires the use of electronic processes.
This is where Web EDI can be implemented quickly as an inexpensive option. It also works the other way around: If a retailer has numerous small suppliers who do not use EDI, creating a dedicated and customized Web EDI portal is the way to go because it will allow for consistent processes with all partners.
Web EDI for the automotive industry
Web EDI is the ideal option for connecting automotive suppliers to large manufacturers such as ŠKODA AUTO a.s. and TMM (Toyota Motor Manufacturing). Suppliers will be ready to use EDI immediately without the need to install any complex IT infrastructure. Clients will always have a complete overview of all sent and received messages.
This solution also ensures that internal ERP systems are connected to WebEDI, which saves manual work and time. Any received call-offs and delivery forecasts can easily be turned into ASN (advanced shipping notices).
Benefits for suppliers
- Inexpensive and easy-to-use online interface
- Receiving delivery forecasts and turning them into ASN made easy
- Create standardized pallet labels/Kanban
- Document import/export from/in Web-EDI
- Quick overview of message status
Benefits for manufacturers
