EDI : Electronic Data Interchange : Ever since EDI has gained widespread popularity, it began to get established as an independent industry. Consequently the EDI services and EDI outsourcing processes became popular and several EDI software packages out were developed in order to facilitate the various organizations to incorporate EDI easily, and efficiently.
As far the success and efficiency of an EDI software is concerned, essentially there are a couple of things that greatly affect the same. In fact, right from a technician down to the EDI administrator, it is important that every one has a fair idea about the EDI transactions taking place within the company, especially the person, who is in-charge of monitoring all the cin particular.
Usually the EDI translation proves to be helpful in situations wherein large amount of data is to be handled, and it can be converted into a convenient form, which is more effective, and even consumes lesser resources.
EDI Documents Turn Around. Usually the EDI transactions involve EDI Mapping, EDI translation, EDI Validation, EDI reporting, EDI import/export as well as EDI Documents Turn Around details.
An effective EDI system saves lot of man power and provides fool-proof results, avoiding any human errors in due course, thus empowering the business to a bigger and better horizon. Coming back to the functional details of EDI translation, usually an EDI translation is necessary to convert any document into EDI compliant standard (such as ANSI ASC certified X.12), so that it may be integrated with the system and used globally across most of the EDI systems. EDI translation is generally needed in organizations wherein large volumes of EDI transactions are involved and the system needs to deal with a number of EDI documents like 810 order form. EDI Translation is one of the easiest options to read a value and set an alternative as a result of some translation setting, which is deployed while the software is installed or otherwise at a later stage. For instance, you may choose to see the Qualifier ID 08 every time followed by the Qualifier value and the Qualifier value at a later stage, which must be in-turn set as the DUNS number.
Many a times, people are caught up with the wrong notion that EDI Translation is mandatory in an EDI system. However, despite the fact that EDI translation is not really mandatory for implementation and integration of an EDI system with any business model, you would surely need a translator to make your life easier.
