Any document format
B2BE’s EDI product enables you and your trading partner to exchange EDI documents in any format. It can be an industry based standard like UN/EDIFACT, ANSI X12 or cXML or a proprietary format, which might be specific to your trading partner or their business system or their environment.
B2BE can handle any transmission protocol including SMTP (email), (S)FTP, HTTP(S), AS2, MQ, Web Services and others. B2BE sends and receives electronic documents and data securely over the internet from your network via the B2BE EDI network to a trading partner’s environment or into a trading partners EDI provider’s network based on your and their requirements.
Document validation and workflow
As documents are parsed through B2BE’s EDI network B2BE can automatically validate your trading partner’s document content based on a set of defined business rules or for tax requirements. Only after validation and translation is it sent to your business system.
Document validation is ideal, for example when your organisation is receiving invoices from suppliers and need to ensure they have complied with your business requirements and regional taxation laws. Likewise, sales orders can be validated before they are received into your system to ensure they will not create exceptions and slow delivery turnaround times.
Data enrichment ensures integration
If your trading partner can’t send all the data needed for complete integration, the B2BE EDI environment can automatically enrich or transpose the data in the document.
Document visibility and audit
The B2BE EDI environment is supplied with access to the online Customer Centre which has full document visibility, with tracking functions and audit trails.
This useful tool is a single point of information for all relevant documents that have transmitted through the B2BE EDI environment and can be configured for your organisations employees to access.
Alerts and reporting
B2BE’s automated notifications can let your organisation know when an important event occurs (or doesn’t) so you can deal with them quickly and efficiently. For example, your customer services team could set an alert if a trading partner does not send a purchase order in a set time frame.
Monitoring and service
B2BE’s systems teams monitor the network 24 x 7 so you don’t need to worry about it. Likewise, B2BE’s support personnel can be contacted for any queries if they arise.
