Liaison EDI Notepad® -
Enterprise EDI Automation
What is EDI?
EDI is electronic data integration, which simply put means you send and receive automated messages for sales orders, purchase orders, shipment notices, invoice to customers and from suppliers. EDI documents, as they are called, come in many “forms”. Such as an EDI-850 document is a purchase order form and an EDI-810 document is an invoice form. These standards-based EDI forms are designed to automate, through common layers of software and technologies, everyday transactions, which otherwise, are transcribed manually.
EDI automation saves your enterprise costs and increases data accuracy and reliability.
- EDI, as an enterprise transaction automation tool, has many data elements and technicalities which may not be easily understood by your sales and marketing, customer service and IT groups.
- HTML View - Raw EDI is not a visually friendly data format. Distracting delimiters and ambiguously named segments make it difficult to read. EDI Notepad’s HTML view displays EDI transaction sets as attractive business documents. If you’re looking to easily read or comprehend the information contained in an EDI document, this is the ideal viewing mode.
- Edit View - EDI Notepad’s edit view displays EDI transaction sets in a columnar format. The left column can either display a segment’s formal name or a segment’s position in the EDI document. The right column displays the EDI segment and its accompanying elements. The edit view is the viewing mode you will use to modify or build EDI transactions.
- Edit - Liaison’s EDI Notepad is an EDI data file editor, viewer and validation tool. Particularly beneficial during the on-boarding process for new suppliers and customers, Liaison Notepad provides ease-of-use understanding the various data used in an EDI transaction document.
