Strong partnership to reinforce the connectivity between EDI and Mobile Sales & Delivery

What is EDI?

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the exchange of business documents between organizations through the Internet. This method is used to replace traditional faxing and bringing paper invoices back to the office, where they finally can be sent to the other party. EDI improves efficiency and speed, while eliminating manual data entry and reducing errors.

Did you know that more than 98% of retail chains require invoices to be sent via EDI?

Wouldn’t it be convenient if those invoices could be sent as soon as they are signed upon delivery?

Making your delivery drivers able to capture a stamp or a signature on their ruggedized handheld computer, equipped with CIS-Companion® Route. You can also rely on their remote communication to automatically send the invoices directly to your office.

As the CIS-Companion® Suite is interfaced with Vantree’s EDI solution, data integrity is preserved by eliminating the need for data re-entry. Your customers can receive and send documents such as EDI 850 Purchase Orders, EDI 856 ASNs and EDI 810 Invoices.
