Electronic Document Interchange (EDI) has helped companies eliminate paper-based communications by automating and streamlining business-to-business (B2B) communications for over 30 years. The use of standard EDI formats throughout the supply chain — from manufacturers, distributors, retailers, fulfillment providers, and other trading partners — has allowed retail companies to fulfill orders faster, cheaper, and with fewer errors.
EDI Integrations with integrator.io
Celigo’s integrator.io platform allows EDI files to be integrated with any other application that is supported by integrator.io. Currently, EDI files can be sent and received via FTP. Support for AS2 (Applicability Statement 2) will be available by the end of 2018.
Celigo’s integrator.io supports all EDI X12 documents that are commonly used in the retail supply chain. Additionally, we support over ten vendor-specific EDI formats today with more being added all the time. If you need integration with a format that is not currently supported, the Celigo Product team will quickly build out the template at no cost to you. Please ask your Celigo Account Executive for more information.
