Web EDI with B2BE
Engage your suppliers to trade business documents with you electronically.
The B2BE web-EDI product is a great way to trade with suppliers who are not capable of supporting an EDI based solution, so you as a buyer can still trade electronically with these suppliers.
You can send documents into the Web-EDI environment and suppliers are notified when they have received a new document. This is all handled online from the supplier’s perspective so they can respond electronically.
Typically, a Web-EDI process model will commence with a purchase order, the supplier can then convert this into any number of documents such as a purchase order response, ASN, and invoice.
The Web-EDI product is highly modular, and you can run different process models for different types of suppliers. It is worth noting that one supplier may have a different set of documents over another supplier.
Configurable Process Models
The Web-EDI product allows a buyer to configure different process models, those of which may contain different document types and different validation or functional requirements and rules.
Each process model can be linked to a range of suppliers or specific suppliers.
Suppliers of expense goods and services may have a different process model over those suppliers that supply goods for resale.
Easy to Use Interfaces
The Web-EDI interfaces are easy and intuitive so suppliers who use them don’t need any training in their use so they can be on-boarded very quickly so they can trade with your organization very quickly. In fact, they can even self-onboard.
Easily Apply Business Rules
Each of the process models can apply specific business rules to different document types so the interfaces manage what a supplier can and cannot do. For example, as a buyer you may not allow backorders so once a supplier has sent a purchase order acknowledgment or invoice, depending on the process model, the supplier will no longer be able to create any further purchase order acknowledgments or invoices on the purchase order.

”If our clients can produce a file

they’ll build the translation maps

“The uptake from suppliers has
been extremely positive with
less than one percent not
wanting to progress this. Under
the old model 99 percent of all
orders were confirmed by faxing.
Long-term, the portal will
remove this tedious step which
increases the work efficiency of
the purchasing team.”
“ B2BE really offered a service that was a world
leader. It helped to drive down the costs per
transaction, from several dollars down to 40 cents
or less, and on top of that, adding value in terms of
allowing organizations to easily connect with us
“At one time we faxed thousands of Purchase
Orders a day, and just cutting back on all that paper has been an immediate benefit. Somebody had to pick up all those faxes, and they got lost or the data wasn’t entered correctly.
“The fact that we can give the problem as a whole to
B2BE and then leave them to sort it out for
themselves has been very helpful to us. A single
PO might be going between several servers in
Australia and New Zealand, but I don’t want to
know about that. I just want to know that the order
has been fulfilled and B2BE takes care of that.”
