First Steps for Changing EDI Providers

You’ve decided to change your EDI provider. There are several steps and things you need to take into consideration as part of the change.

1

Do you trade electronic documents on both sides of your supply chain?

2

What document types do you currently trade electronically and with whom? Purchase Orders and Invoices, for example.

3

Does your current provider deliver any business logic you cannot handle in your own systems that needs to be handled?

4

What are the current issues your organisation faces with your current provider? What is it they cannot do for you?

5

Where you use, or send data into a tradition Value Added Network (VAN) do you own your GLN/Mailbox or is this owned by your current provider?

6

Do you have any time frames that will need to be taken into consideration when changing provider? Do you have new connections you need to setup or contract renewal constraints?

7

Do you have the resources available to manage the change from a business or technical perspective?
