Automate Your Processes with Electronic Data Interchange
bcEDI allows your Dynamics NAV environment to seamlessly communicate with your customers and vendors. Thanks to the full automation of your EDI solution, manual order entry becomes a thing of the past. Orders are created instantaneously, and data entry errors are nonexistent. Additional communications, such as shipment notifications and invoices, are all automatically sent to your partners as soon as they are posted within NAV. And as your company grows, you won’t need to add personnel to handle the increased order volume; bcEDI can handle it.
Many of the most prominent retailers in the country require that their suppliers send and receive data according to their specific EDI standards. Failure to meet those standards can result in delays, fines, or even a termination in the business relationship. With close to 200 successful deployments involving more than 400 trading partners, bcEDI has a proven track record of ensuring that companies meet the standards of some of the largest and most recognized retailers today. Using bcEDI, you can be confident that your data will be transmitted to your customers and vendors according to their criteria.
