Web EDI Solutions
Whether you’re looking for a solution to trade with your suppliers or as a supplier who needs to trade with multiple customers the B2BE Web EDI, Web Trader solution, allows buyers and suppliers easily trade electronically with one another simply and quickly.
Whether you need to support a complicated document set or a more straight forward solution the Web Trader solution is easy to use, accessible anywhere and means less manual documents and less errors.
Trading with suppliers or customers using paper based document management solutions is slow and cumbersome and in some instances, such as ASN’s not possible to support making it more difficult to trade.
Like any manual process the chance of errors are higher. This increases risk, documents may be distributed to the wrong supplier or customer and the chances of deliveries being impeded are greater.
Many buyers, particularly within the FMCG market now will only trade with suppliers electronically. This approach is spreading more rapidly as solutions are in place to make this easier to do. Suppliers who do not run sophisticated ERP or business systems or can’t warrant the investment in a fully integrated EDI solution need alternatives.
Our Web EDI, Web Trader solution means you don’t need to invest in fully integrated EDI solutions as a supplier to trade with your customers or as a buyer you can provide alternative electronic trading means to your suppliers.
Web Trader is browser based, via the Customer Centre to trade with multiple buyers or Web Portal for buyers to trade with multiple suppliers, which means access, documents and interfaces are intuitive to use and follow processed based on the buyer’s requirements so as a supplier it’s easy to comply with electronic trading or as a buyer you can set the rules and how the system should function.
Multi Document Creation
Complex transaction support
The Web Trader solution supports any transaction set, it can also support complex document requirements. Multiple POA’s, POC’s ASN’s and Invoices, for example. This can be configured based on the buyer’s business processes which reflects how a buyer buys and and expects goods to be shipped.
Alerts and Notifications
Web EDI means as a buyer you have the means to trade 100% electronically with suppliers and as a seller you can support buyer’s needs.
Easy to use
Easy on-boarding of suppliers
Easy on-boarding of customers
If you’re a supplier and you need to trade with your customers to either be compliant or to streamline some of your trading arrangements then Web Trader is similarly easy to add new customers to the environment so you can trade with them faster.
Full audit trail
Web Trader is fully auditable and maintains all the documents within the system so historical documents are available and if they form a part of a transaction set they’re linked so you can see documents you received and sent so the solution is fully auditable and easy to track and trace historic documents.
As the Web Trader solution is browser based this means you can access the system anywhere. Customer Service personnel can manage orders from the office and warehouse staff can manage elements of the transaction set from a warehouse.
Web EDI and EDI combined
Some sellers can handle some documents within their ERP or business system so this can be a fully integrated EDI solution. Whereas, they may not be able to produce other documents easily or a third party shipper, for example handles certain aspects. As a supplier you need to still create these documents. The B2BE Web Trader and EDI solutions can work together so some elements are integrated whereas others are Web EDI based.
