chain efficiency demands close collaboration between all trading
community members. Integrated messaging is the key, seamlessly
linking manufacturers’ and suppliers’ sales, inventory
and logistics systems.
TEDIS B2b Online supports managed, any-to-any messaging between
trading partners. It provides an integrated link to each partners’
ERP system exchanging traditional EDI, proprietary application
data files or XML.
Each participant exchanges business documents via TEDIS
B2b Online in the message format and using the communications
protocols of their choice. The service automatically translates
and routes the messages and responses between participants
(it works for both message-enabled and WebEDI subcribers).
The service maintains a full audit trail and can provide message
acknowledgements and delivery notifications as required. TEDIS
B2b Online can exchange messages with other ISP’s and
VAN’s, so it’s not even necessary for both parties
to be directly connected to the service.
As all documents are ‘mapped’ via the internal
TEDIS format, once a trading partner is enabled for its selected
document set, they can immediately exchange documents with
all other TEDIS subscribers who are similarly enabled.
This benefit allows a rapid roll-out to whole communities
of interest … possibly supported by a TEDIS community
