Any organization that exchanges information, including those involved in procurement/purchasing, finance, trade and transport, health, law, and revenue/tax collection, can benefit from a powerful EDI solution. Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) can help you reduce paperwork and administrative lead times, send timely business transactions, access information quickly and easily, and eliminate redundant data entry. These benefits allow you to adopt more efficient practices in your operation, including Just-In-Time, Quick Response, and Direct Store Delivery.
To achieve the maximum benefit of implementing an EDI mapping software solution, you must integrate the EDI business process with your existing enterprise systems. VISUAL Enterprise Data Interchange (VMDI) helps you accomplish this integration by providing a link between your EDI data and your VISUAL Enterprise software. The optional VMDI module works with your EDI solution to import and export data between your VISUAL database and the EDI application. You can import firm demand to customer orders, track cumulative quantities, and maintain fabricated and raw material authorizations. Additionally, the customer order import allows you to automatically access and update pricing information, units of measure, contact information, terms of sale, and ship-to addresses, if necessary.
