EDI Solutions and Integrations to Fuel Efficiencies

Inform EDI Data Gateway

DDI System's Inform ERP offers wholesale distributors the ability to electronically send and receive important purchasing documents through the Inform EDI Data Gateway. These processes run invisibly in the background and do not disturb the workflow process. Authorized users are notified when the process completes.

This EDI feature is especially helpful to distributors who are members of industry buying groups as this gateway helps to streamline everyday processes. Many buying group specific integrations are already in place.

Inform EDI Data Gateway includes 5 standard EDI maps:

  • 810 Invoice
  • 850 Purchase Order
  • 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgement
  • 856 Advance Ship Notice (inbound and outbound from vendor)

If any of the pricing falls below your Inform minimum margins, you will be warned and prompted to provide higher level access to complete the sales order.
