At Infocon Systems, we take pride in making EDI easy for our customers. The biggest part of fulfilling that goal is ensuring that EDI implementation is simple and stress-free. We take care of the heavy lifting and make the entire process turnkey. There is no software that you need to buy, install, or maintain. Everything you need for EDI implementation and capabilities runs on the Infocon Systems secure world class web servers with 99.9% uptime & high-availability. Only an Internet connection is needed.

To improve efficiency, more and more customers require their suppliers have the ability to reliably exchange EDI documents. Becoming EDI capable involves buying or outsourcing the following components:

  • EDI communication software
  • Mailbox for EDI transactions
  • Communication networks like Van (Value Added Network), AS2, or FTP -- based on trading partner requirements
  • A server or PC, communication devices, and peripherals
  • Monitored security, backups and redundant power
  • EDI Translation Management software
  • Personnel training on how to use above software and communication devices
  • Development and testing of maps with each EDI trading partner for all EDI document types.
