BE COMPLIANT FOR ALL EDI TRADING PARTNER REQUIREMENTS
EDI compliance is the ability to exchange EDI documents while meeting the requirements of your trading partners. As your EDI network grows and you do business with more vendors, you will need to be EDI compliant for a variety of requirements.
Becoming EDI Compliant
Companies can create requirements or rules that specify the exact data formats required for EDI transactions, specific protocols you must use, and other rules concerning how you exchange EDI data as trading partners.
In most cases, you aren’t completely left in the dark, as you will be provided a guide that explains their EDI requirements and how to become compliant. However, you would still need to do everything yourself or hire someone else to do it for you.
As a part of our all-in-one EDI solutions, BOLD VAN offers a complimentary EDI compliance service to all customers. We handle everything from mapping and translation to communication and testing saving you time and a lot of hassle.
EDI Trading Partner Requirements
Often a trading partner will provide an application for you to complete requesting EDI information, such as your EDI ID, VAN information, and supported EDI documents and protocols. We are happy to assist you with the application process to ensure you complete the forms correctly.
Our team of EDI experts handle all of the tasks required for EDI compliance. Here is a fundamental rundown of the process required for EDI compliance:
- Configuration and testing of EDI with your new trading partner
- Mapping and translation of EDI data into their required formats
- Updating of maps based on your trading partners’ changes to their EDI requirements
- Secure VAN service allowing instant transactions between EDI trading partners
- Training and technical support for your team (if needed)
