Benefits of managed EDI
The DiCentral EDI-Integrated Suite for SAP Business One, a SAP certified add-on, is a fully hosted, seamless, and AS2 enabled solution that achieves the true optimization of business practices for which EDI has always been intended.
All mapping, trading partner management, testing, configuration, and 997 Functional Acknowledgement tracking are fully managed without the need for updates or patches to be purchased or installed by end users.
Full data integration
SAP Business One users' sales, invoicing, production, scheduling, and shipping data are all fully integrated and reconciled, eliminating any need for manual intervention.
Customer and supplier-facing EDI
Capable of both customer and supplier-facing EDI, the SAP Business One platform now combines the substantial cost savings of a fully hosted EDI model with the technological capabilities of solutions that were until recently unavailable to small and medium sized enterprises.
A single environment
The EDI-Integrated Suite comes equipped with validation, automation, and reporting functionalities that have been designed with the user in mind and that enable SAP Business One users to take full advantage of the SAP Business One platform. Seamless data integration and embedded functionality allow all EDI related activities to be executed within the native-end user environment of SAP Business One.
As in the case with all important and large-scale projects, roll-out optimization of an EDI solution must undergo a detailed analysis to determine its profitability. DiCentral has mastered the cost-benefit analysis process. We would be pleased to help you run a project feasibility evaluation. You'll come away with an exact summary of project costs and user fees, when you can expect to see a return on your investment and just how much money you'll be saving.
“Our previous EDI solution did not offer the advantages of having a fully integrated, embedded solution. This caused a number of costly data manipulation errors in and out of our ERP. We chose DiCentral's EDI-Integrated Suite for SAP Business One because it is a true ERP integration, one that offers real-time EDI management savings.”

“We manage several warehouses and Quickbooks simply couldn'tmeet our needs anymore. Our EDI was managed through a third party web portal and too much time was spent manually processing data between the two systems. We were looking for automaton. We therefore selected DiCentral's EDI-Integrated Suite for SAP Business One, and this decision turned out to be the right one. We have reduced ASN processing times by about 50% and this is only the first phase of the project.”

“We used to manage EDI operations in-house, which inherently meant that we had to manipulate EDI data, manage the addition of new trading partners and manage our VAN's mailbox. Since we were looking to replace our AS/400-based ERP, it was crucial that our EDI exchanges become completely integrated to our new ERP. We knew that this would have a significant impact on our company's organizational processes. Another criterion that was important to us was the geographical proximity of our new supplier: we wanted to have quick access to technical resources. We therefore selected DiCentral's EDI-Integrated Suite for SAP Business One. Our decision enabled us to free up considerable amounts of time that we can now dedicate to tasks that have more value for our company. Being able to pull resources away from administrative functions has enabled us to generate an immediate Return On Investment.”

“Our EDI management was not optimal. We were forced to manually process data twice for all orders and invoices: first, through an EDI provider other than DiCentral, and second, in our SAP Business One ERP software. Our EDI workload was constantly increasing. DiCentral's EDI-Integrated Suite for SAP Business One enabled us to optimize all of our EDI processes. Because of DiCentral's tight, embedded integration to SAP Business One, our EDI solution is now fully automated, which has greatly reduced processing time on top of eliminating potential human errors.
We have recently created a new entity on the East Coast and, without hesitation, we chose DiCentral's EDI-Integrated Suite for SAP Business One to manage EDI with all of our trading partners. Within three months, we have now added 20 new EDI Trading Partners knowing that our EDI solution would support their requirements flawlessly.”
