Epicor EDI: Rapid EDI Implementation

Businesses today are connecting like never before.  Omnichannel integration means pushing your products and services to multiple vendors websites.  This type of integration means that suppliers and vendors expect to be able to communicate electronically.  To stay ahead or beat your competition, you need to take the next step, using EDI to connect Epicor to your customer’s systems.

Our EDI Process

SPS Commerce logoSaberLogic provides the software and implementation services for the portion of the EDI process that goes between your VAN or mapping partner and your Epicor ERP.

SaberLogic has been working closely with SPS Commerce on EDI integration since 2009, and we achieved certification of our Epicor EDI solution on their RSX platform.

Solid EDI Integration Methodology

In the past, every EDI trading partner you had needed to have a custom map developed. If you had a lot of trading partners, this quickly became a lengthy and costly development process.

To solve this, SPS Commerce developed a retail standard XML format that they called RSX (Retail Standard XML). By standardizing the format, this allowed SaberLogic to develop a tight integration layer between SPS and Epicor that eliminates the manual data entry of your orders, customer invoices, warehouse shipments, etc.

You have a single channel to SPS, who sorts and separate all EDI transactions and delivers them to us according to the trading partner.

SaberLogic then takes that RSX output file from SPS Commerce and converts that to a file that Epicor can read through Epicor Demand Management and Direct Import, which is the preferred process flow for Epicor EDI handling. Outbound documents are kicked off via a BPM (Business Process Management) which uses database calls for high-performance document creation.
