EDI is a standard interface for sending and receiving bills of lading, invoices and other formatted documents electronically.  Traditionally EDI software has been an expensive, labor intensive exercise. AdvancePro’s EDI module provides you with an EDI system that allows you to connect with trading partners demanding EDI integration, without the need to leave AdvancePro or work with hard to read EDI documents.

Many of today’s leading corporation’s demand that their trading partners have the ability to reliably exchange EDI documents when sending invoices and receiving orders. They are under pressure to reduce their procurement process costs by automating manual processes. AdvancePro’s EDI module will help you operate like a large corporation by automating data entry and reducing duplication and errors.

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: AdvancePro customers use True Commerce as their EDI solutions and translation provider. The True Commerce’s customer portal is set up to automatically export raw EDI files to a specified folder. Those files are imported to AdvancePro with the click of a button. Orders from your trading partner then get processed like all other orders, until the Advanced Shipping Notice (ASN) and Invoicing stages, where AdvancePro will export raw EDI documents right into the True Commerce portal and send them to the trading partner.
