Electronic Data Interchange – EDI,  Digital Transformation

Tools and technology for the management of large EDI projects

EDI projects

Creating a Global EDI project requires following a specific work process, such as ITIL or PMP. This process is divided into phases, and requires cooperation between the departments in the company affected by the project and the Technology Provider's Project Managers involved in implementing the EDI solution.

However, for all this collaborative work, whether in the implementation of IT projects or of any other kind, it is advisable the intensive use of applications and technology that serves as a facilitating channel between the people involved in B2B projects.

The extensive experience and understanding acquired through the execution of tens of thousands of EDI projects has enabled us to refine our core methodology with custom-developed technology that streamlines and accelerates the completion of a B2B project's various stages. Drawing upon the expertise acquired through the successful implementation of numerous EDI projects, we have supplemented our fundamental methodology with the development of proprietary technology that expedites and streamlines the various stages of a B2B project.

Most of these applications are centralized in MyEDICOM, which is the private portal from which customers and users can track their projects, support requests, settlements and the CPI applied to the different services.

Now let's get to know the advanced applications and functionalities used from the EDICOM customer portal for the management, planning and execution of EDI B2B projects.

Project Management Module in MyEDICOM

Utilizing EDI B2B's project management module, users may access a list of current EDICOM projects, inspecting each project's primary data, components, and accompanying documentation. For each project, users can access the details of activities, scenarios, minutes, networks, and GANTT charts for the project's timeline. The great advantage of this module is that it offers visibility to the client over the entire project and allows interacting with the Project Manager through:

  • Activities: The activities allow the client to consult the details of the project, which activities make it up, and for each one to know who is responsible, dates of execution, contacts or the status of this among others.
  • Scenarios: Through the scenarios, the client is granted total autonomy in the testing phase, allowing him to validate files and obtain results on line.
  • Minutes: The user can view the minutes previously generated by EDICOM so that they can be viewed and downloaded by the user.
  • Graph: The graph allows the user to view the graphical representation of the project, making it easier to understand.
  • Gantt: The Gantt chart lets you view the project's graphical representation on a timeline, making it easy to see its evolution and progress.

EDI Partner Certification Portal

EDICOM has developed the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Certification Portal in order to streamline the integration of new EDI exchanges between business partners, granting them a space of autonomy in which to assess the quality of their EDI projects. The utilization of a tool with these attributes can help to ensure the quality and dependability of the testing process, as all stakeholders can validate the various data transfer operations before deploying the solution in a production environment.

  • Project organization, partner segmentation, phases and definition of actions.
  • Obtaining information on the technological status of the partners.
  • Performing integration tests with your platform.
