 Module EDI

The Module EDI is the basis for automated processing of incoming and outgoing EDI messages. According to requirements Message Add-Ons EDIFACT, ODETTE, VDA and X12 can be added individually.


Freely definable inhouse formats allow to connect the Module EDI to any inhouse system and use it for nearly any use case. Several automation features guarantee unattended operation. Monitoring and manual control of all features are available using an intuitive user interface.

The Module EDI is accessible from third party programs with the help of simple scripts. To use this feature the Add-On EP Scripting (External Process Scripting) is required.

An integrated editor provides structural ( tree view ) view of EDI messages in readable format. Coded fields will be resolved to readable text by using default code lists. The readable text can be printed out automatically.

Features
  • Full process automation
  • Multiple conversion for each partner
  • Scripts for validation of EDI messages prior conversion
  • Adhoc printing of messages and related forms
  • Running transmissions via !MC5 or external program
