Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is a standard interface for sending and receiving bills of lading, invoices and other formatted documents electronically. Instead of relying on traditional and labor intensive EDI software, AdvancePro’s EDI module provides you with an integrated system that allows you to connect with trading partners demanding EDI integration. Our module will help you operate like a large corporation by automating data entry and reducing duplication and errors.

How does it Work

AdvancePro and HighJump True Commerce EDI have developed a module that allows AdvancePro users to effortlessly import and export EDI files to and from their AdvancePro system. It works as follows:

Step 1

AdvancePro customers use True Commerce as their EDI solutions and translation provider.

Step 2

The True Commerce’s customer portal is set up to automatically export raw EDI files to a specified folder.

Step 3

Those files are imported to AdvancePro with the click of a button.

Step 4

Orders from your trading partner then get processed like all other orders, till the Advanced Shipping Notice (ASN) and Invoicing stages

Step 5

Finally, AdvancePro will export raw EDI documents right into the True Commerce portal and send them to the designated trading partner
