What is EDI?
EDI, Electronic Data Interchange, makes it possible to convey orders, as well as request confirmations, invoices and delivery receipts between your company and WAGO securely in seconds. For the actual transfer, the business documents are converted to a standard EDI format which both the sender and receiver can read and are then transmitted via any transfer protocol.
What do we need EDI for?
Direct exchange of electronic documents between two application systems is very difficult to implement. Therefore, the EDIFACT message standard has become established in EDI. To generate/process EDIFACT messages, you need special software and an “EDI converter,” which is offered by various software vendors. You must also provide various communication channels (including x.400, AS/2 and FTP) for secure, traceable and error-free exchange of documents with all partners. Depending on the scope of your processes and volume of your messages, it may be more cost-effective to hire a service provider (clearing center). WAGO has entrusted Curamus GmbH in Oldenburg to handle this task for many years.
WAGO will be happy to support you in setting up an EDI system. It is left up to you whether to operate your EDI system entirely on your own or hire a service provider. We have many years of experience with EDI and can advise you on commercial and technical issues. Get in contact and take advantage of the many benefits of EDI.
