EDI – Electronic Data Interchange

EDI – Digital data flow and communication between your business and your suppliers for faster and more accurate ordering and receiving of goods

NedFox’ EDI platform; RetailLink is used to optimise EDI messages between suppliers and individual stores.
EDI is also used for intercompany deliveries.

  • EDI increases efficiency of all parties involved (suppliers, retailers and stores).
  • Information does not have to be entered manually, thereby saving time and ensuring correct information is always displayed.
  • Communication protocols X400, SMTP and FTP are supported.
  • FTP is ideal for sending larger messages (PRICAT / SLSRPT and INVRPT) because there are virtually no communication costs.
  • The RetailLink platform (website) is available to organisations who want to manage their own EDI-centre.
