EDI Outsourcing

Clients wishing to reap the benefits of outsourcing EDI management are able to do so with Global eCommerce Technologies outsourcing programs. Simply send files to the Global eCommerce Network and our translation service converts documents into those required by customers and suppliers.

We provide “EDI compliance” services or EDI outsourcing for vendors who are not equipped with EDI processing capabilities. Global eCommerce Technologies offers two specialty outsourcing solutions: application conversion and manual processing.

Application Conversion

Simply stated, we convert EDI data to and from Customized Data Files for use with a spreadsheet, ERP or business applications. Clients interested in EDI outsourcing do not need to have any experience in EDI to comply with a trading partner’s electronic processing requirements!

We take care of the initial setup work with your trading partners. These steps include:

  • Gather the necessary information concerning your company
  • Provide the application file layouts for your systems
  • Load the application files into your internal systems successfully
  • Generate application files from your system and transmit them
  • Files are converted to EDI documents and transmitted

The requirements for the Application Conversion Process are as follows:

  • Communications software or other means to receive/send application files
  • Ability to receive/send the Custom Data File defined by you
  • The ability to import and export application files within a client’s systems


Manual Processing

The Manual Processing program for EDI outsourcing entails conversion of EDI data received from trading partners into a readable format and then sending it to clients via mail, fax or e-mail. We also translate information clients fax or e-mail us into an EDI format that is returned to trading partners. As with our application conversion outsourcing process, clients do not need to have any experience with EDI to comply with a trading partner’s electronic processing requirements.

The initial setup work with your trading partners is completed by Global eCommerce Technologies. The process includes these steps:

  • Receive fax or mail copies of the EDI documents in a form so that you are familiar with the look and the content of the documents.
  • Transmit via fax or mail outgoing documents so that it can be converted into EDI format.

The requirements for the EDI Manual Processing program is short and simple: a reliable fax machine is all that is needed.
