Our services include:
Discovery and Design
The initial phase of an EDI integration project in which B2 Integration assesses the business processes of clients and their trading partners and determines the EDI documents required to complete all transactions critical to the enterprises’ operations.
TransformationThe “mapping” phase of an EDI integration project. “Mapping” refers to two data-transfer processes:
- sending data from a database to an EDI document
- extracting data from an EDI document and sending it to a database
Communication and SecurityThe secure transmission of EDI documents between enterprises. (Due to consideration of cost and flexibility, traditional Bisync and FTP transmission protocols are being replaced by AS2, an Internet-based protocol.)
Transaction RoutingThe routing of EDI documents to the appropriate application within an enterprise’s information system. (An 810 Invoice document, for example, is routed to the enterprise finance application.)
On-boarding and Community Management
The process of integrating an enterprise’s partner community into the enterprise’s EDI system. Also the term used to refer to adopting a new EDI document type or changing a current EDI document in an existing EDI system.
Audits and controls
The process of ensuring that the EDI system is integrated correctly with a company’s enterprise management system.
Custom Development and Interface Design
The development of custom application interfaces when an enterprise management system does not include built-in EDI standards.
