EDI, which stands for Electronic Data Interchange, enables a computer system from one company to “talk” to the computer system of another company and digitally exchange data. Because this digital exchange of data is facilitated using computers, most, if not all of the associated business processes can be automated so they occur with little or no manual data entry. This enables companies to electronically exchange business documents like purchase orders and invoices.
The shipping module in the HighJump TrueCommerce EDI Platform creates a seamless connection between shipping systems, such as UPS and FedEx, and your EDI transactional information resulting in enhanced customer service with an ability to provide up-to-the-minute details.
You will be able to preload order distribution details into your shipping systems with available information including order number, ship-to information, and even packing details with weights. With the addition of a simple bar code scan, this physical process becomes an automated, one-step event.
