INTERFACES FOR PROCESS OPTIMIZATION

EDI (ELECTRONIC DATA INTERCHANGE)

EDI refers to electronic data interchange in relation to business processes/documents between customers and supplier systems without any manual intervention needed at all.. A series of international standards has been developed to facilitate communication between different IT systems, with common formats including, for example, UN/EDIFACT and various XML formats.

ADVANTAGES OF ELECTRONIC DATA INTERCHANGE

Electronic data interchange between companies saves workflow costs:

  • Automated transfer of documents
  • No duplication
  • Faster business processes
  • Minimized error quotas
  • 24/7 accessibility
  • Paper documents obsolete
  • Simplified communication

STANDARDS

UN/EDIFACT
(United Nations Electronic Data Interchange for Administration, Commerce and Transport)
EDIFACT provides a solution that sets out the handling of various business processes such as orders, invoices, delivery notes and much more besides. This format is considered an international standard and can be applied for the exchange of Information across different countries and industries. EDIFACT permits flexible use of data elements and thus differs from a rigid norm.

OPENTRANS

OpenTrans refers to an XML-based standard for support of electronic data interchange. OpenTrans makes a manageable number of documents available, auch as the order, the dispatch notofication and the quote. They consist of set structures and thus simplify workflow and processing. This data format is used primarily within Germany.

ASCII
ASCII is not strictly speaking an EDI format. RIEGLER ASCII files represent a simple format for orders that can be exported from your system and sent to us via email. These files have a very simple structure and can be sent to us as .txt /.csv / .xls / .asc formats. We will be happy to send you precise guidelines and instructions.

PREREQUISITES FOR EDI

In order to be able to use EDI, the sysem requires a so-called EDI converter or the use of EDI clearing providers. Furthermore, your ERP system needs to support and to be able to process the format in use.

BMEcat
The BMEcat format is based on the XML technology. It offers standardized exchange of catalogue data and simplifies the upkeep of item-related data. The label BMEcat comes from "Bundesverband Materialwirtschaft, Einkauf und Logistik e.V." (BME, the German Association for Supply Chain Management, Procurement and Logistics) coupled with the word "catalogue". Product data are arranged in a BMEcat in various categories such as identifications, classifications (e.g. eCl@ss and UNSPSC), additional information and much more. This exchange format is widespread primarily in German-speaking countries.

CSV
CSV (comma-separated values) is a text format used for the exchange of structured data. These are frequently used for exchange of product data, for example for online shops
