What is an ERP system?

An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is a software platform that integrates and manages business processes and functions across a business. ERP systems are essential for businesses to manage data across teams such as finance, accounting, human resources, supply chain and inventory teams, manufacturing, sales, and marketing. With an ERP system businesses can access and share data to improve forecasting, collaboration, efficiency, and decision-making. Integrating ERP systems with other applications enhances operational performance and strategic planning.

What is EDI and ERP integration?

EDI to ERP integration involves connecting EDI with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, such as NetSuite and Microsoft Dynamics, to facilitate the exchange of data between trading partners. This integration ensures that crucial business documents, like purchase orders and invoices, flow smoothly between the EDI system and the ERP system.

For example, in the case of NetSuite, EDI integration allows for the automatic transfer of sales orders received via EDI directly into NetSuite’s order management system, eliminating manual data entry and reducing errors. This automation reduces the likelihood of errors between the ERP system and external trading partners.

Leveraging iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Service) for EDI to ERP integration simplifies the integration process, reduces costs, and improves operational efficiency, while keeping the relationship and communications between trading partners seamless and without errors.

Why is EDI and ERP integration important?

Marketplaces such as Amazon, Walmart, and Costco use EDI to exchange data because it ensures adherence to their guidelines and protocols. With EDI integration, businesses can automate order, shipping, product, and inventory data from EDI to their ERP systems to eliminate errors caused by manual processes and data entry which ensures accuracy, timeliness, and compliance.
