Ways to Optimize your Business through EDI Integration

EDI typically comes as a requirement from trading partners, but it might come as a surprise that it can also be used as an important tool to improve your business. Here are some of the ways our solutions that can be used, and how they can help you in 2020: 

Integrated EDI 

ERP
An ERP could be the next big step for your business, allowing you to manage all the data from different departments in one system.
We work with ERPs such as SAP S/4 HanaMicrosoft Dynamics NAV and NetSuite. Our EDI integration allows you to manage your EDI documents such as 850, 810, 856 with any ERP while remaining in your day-to-day environment making it simple, convenient and manageable for you and your team. Having it all integrated brings you one step closer to an automated business. 

E-commerce
Year after year, the E-commerce industry grows 23% and is expected to have 4.5 trillion global sales by 2021. E-commerce is the new way of doing business and regardless of the type, Vantree can meet your needs and provide all crucial EDI processes to create vertical integration in your business. Dropship fulfillment is the way to reduce your operational cost while still selling online. This includes companies like Commerce-Hub, Fedex and DSCo who in turn serve companies like Costco and Kohls. Similarly, online marketplace allows you to list your products alongside others and benefit from having your products accessible in a marketplace setting. Online marketplace companies like Amazon.com and Amazon.ca have partnered up with Vantree to create a seamless integrated solution while maintaining a single communication channel.  We’ve also connected to many specialized internal or private labeled E-commerce solutions like Shopify and Magento to help you create your own ecommerce shopping experience.  

Third Party Solutions 
The benefit of our software being custom built is we can develop complex integrations for our customers. If you have plans to outsource your warehousing to 3PL (3rd party logistics) like Amazon or XPO, we can bridge to any third-party business of your choice. If you are managing your own operations using a WMS/OMS/IMS, speak to us about your goals and we can help you optimize your order fulfillment needs. 

We also work with a great retail execution software company called CIS Group that can help your sales reps do their work while utilizing one simple mobile platform. CIS Group is one of the largest providers of software solutions in North America and accommodates resources for Sales Force Automation solutions and Direct Store Delivery operations.  

We can also help you bring in orders (850) and send out invoices (810) directly from your Accounting system like QuickbooksAcomba and Sage while eliminating manual data entry and improving user satisfaction.
