Our self-service, web-based portal allows vendors to reach certification status in as little as 1 business day.
For decades, retailers tried to implement EDI with their suppliers, in search of 100% EDI compliance. Painstakingly, a department of EDI specialists would reach out to suppliers, convince them to trade via EDI, only to find their support efforts would skyrocket as more and more suppliers converted to EDI.
The problem? Continuing to discover unexpected errors not found in the implementation process. The suppliers were making a lot of mistakes, and the retailers were inundated with issues. The solution? To make the implementation process more comprehensive, so that all the “bugs” would be worked out before moving suppliers to EDI production.
Under York’s EDI Certification Testing program, we put your suppliers through a process to verify they are ready to begin live EDI document trading with you. Our self-service, web-based portal allows vendors to reach certification status in as little as 1 business day. The portal handles EDI test submissions for real-time validation; the supplier can request test documents to be released to them. Email and phone support is available to help guide the way. Scheduling limits are available so you can drive the process at your own pace. Certifications are typically done for a fee to the tester, so the program may cost you nothing. The end result? More EDI trading partners in less time, with far fewer data errors.
