- EDI communication is an integral part from the initial development of RetailVista in 2006.
- EDI increases the efficiency of all parties involved (suppliers, retailers and branches).
- Information does not have to be entered manually, thereby saving time and always correct information is displayed.
- The supplier often offers a better buying condition when you use EDI to send your purchase orders.
- EDI messages are also used for branch administation, shop orders and linking of companies.
Supported message types
- ORDER, placing a purchase order from the supplier or an affiliate. Time saving and no errors in the delivery.
- DESADV, delivery note message on receipt of goods from the supplier, resulting in a huge time savings for the retailer.
- INVOICE, the supplier's purchase invoice is based on previous deliveries made, providing a fast and correct control of the purchase invoice.
- RETINS, message to inform suppliers that goods should be collected to return.
- SLSRPT, a message to inform suppliers which items are sold from their range, very useful with consignment agreements.
- INVRPT, a message that provides information about the master data and stock levels, often combined with SLSRPT.
- PRICAT, message containing the master data and purchasing data of the suppliers' products.
- ORDRSP, confirmation of the order placed (and order raised, by supplier).
- IFTMIN, message for the logistics service parcel carriers.
