One of the most resource-intensive parts of implementing an EDI solution is the supplier onboarding process, i.e. interconnecting their EDI systems with yours. This can be challenging because many of your suppliers will use an EDI solution from a different vendor, plus you will have suppliers who will not have an EDI system at all.
Bringing each supplier up to a compliant standard becomes a slow process and, without the right compliance testing solution in place, will take up a lot of your resources.
We have the right supplier onboarding solution at EDI by Design. In fact, our solution can handle almost the whole supplier onboarding process. This solution comes with all our EDI products including:
Small Business B2B is the ideal EDI solution if you need EDI functionality but don't want to go through the hassle or expense of upgrading to an ERP system. Small and medium-sized businesses don't need the complex functionality of an ERP system, so we tailored Small Business B2B for you.
Our tried and tested process and experienced team will efficiently complete EDI compliance testing and will support your suppliers to rapidly get them onboard.
This will reduce the resources required from you to a minimum. As a result, your EDI compliance testing costs will significantly reduce too. This is because your EDI, buying, accounts, and warehouse teams can get on with doing their jobs rather than assisting with the EDI onboarding process.
During the process, your suppliers will have three tests to complete to ensure compliance:
After successfully completing these tests, you can have confidence completing EDI transactions.
While we emphasise efficiency, volume, and speed in our supplier onboarding process, we also ensure each of your suppliers is fully tested according to your guidelines. This ensures high levels of accuracy in the EDI data you send and receive, making your supply chain more efficient.
Our supplier onboard process is highly efficient and cost-effective for you, but we also ensure the process is straightforward for your suppliers as well.
All your suppliers will have access to your EDI specifications, and they will get a detailed explanation of what they need to do during the testing stages.
Our team supports them in this part of the process, with our system providing your suppliers with real-time feedback so they can quickly identify and correct errors.
Plus, we don't charge your suppliers anything.
