It is 2010, and EDI is still going strong?!?
Adeptia announced the release of its EDI Integration Solution. This software solution helps companies automate date flows that generate Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) messages from internal data or process incoming EDI messages and integrate them with internal systems, databases and SaaS applications. Besides EDI-XML integration, Adeptia includes support for trading partner configuration and management. This solution includes support for ANSI X12 and UN/EDIFACT. All X12 standards and release versions are supported – from the popular 5010 and 4010 standards to others including the 4020, 4030 and the earlier 3010. All transaction sets are also supported including the transactions related to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
An example use of this EDI Integration Solution is for growing manufacturing and logistics companies to automatically handle increasing traffic of EDI messages. Usually the smaller organizations handle EDI in a manual way by using a business person to check manually for incoming EDI messages in the mailbox, download the message, open it in an EDI translator and then visually read the information and type it into their in-house order management, accounting and ERP systems. This approach does not scale when the organization grows and is interacting with many retailers and trading partners who not only want to exchange Purchase Orders and Invoices but also Advance Ship Notices and other transactions and so there are lot of incoming and outgoing EDI messages. This requires an end-to-end, fully integrated EDI solution for automatic processing and generation of EDI messages. The Adeptia EDI Integration solution easily and quickly meets this need.
“Despite advances in XML and Web Services, EDI still remains the dominant standard for data exchange between companies and organizations. Moreover, certain EDI standards such as ACORD AL3 in Insurance industry and HIPAA/HL7 in Healthcare have shown strong growth momentum in recent years. Adeptia has further strengthened the Business to Business Integration (B2Bi) capabilities of its product line with the availability of a powerful, yet easy-to-use EDI Integration Solution.”, said Lou Ennuso, CEO of Adeptia.
