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.
