Communication Manager

The communication manager is an easy to understand interface that allows you to see every EDI file / document sent to and received from trading partners. The files can be viewed in a plain English printable format, or in the raw EDI format. The following components are included with the communication manager.

  • Inbox - showing all pending inbound documents (i.e. 850 Purchase Orders and 997 Functional Acknowledgements).
  • Received Log - a historical log of all inbound documents already processed.
  • Outbox - showing all pending outbound documents (i.e. 810 Invoices, 856 Advance Ship Notices, 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgements, and 997 Functional Acknowledgments).
  • Sent Log - a historical log of all outbound documents already processed.
  • Deleted Log - A log of all pending documents that were deleted before being processed.

Order Log

The Order Log is an alternative way to view all documents related to a single inbound Purchase Order. When the 850 Purchase Order is received from trading partners, it is set up in the Order Log. In addition, all of the corresponding documents associated with the Purchase Order (i.e. the 810 Invoice, the 997 Functional Acknowledgements, etc) are tied to it for easy access.

How You Get Purchase Orders

Once the 850 Purchase Order is received by the EDI Pipeline system, it is converted into a plain English (readable) format that you can view and print. The plain English format is available in any of the following ways:

  • Via Email - automatically sent to your email address(es)
  • Via Your Control Panel - log in to view it at any time
  • Via Fax - automatically sent to your fax number

In addition, the Purchase Order can be converted into an electronic file that can be imported into any industry standard or unique electronic format.

Import into Your Software Programs

The EDI Pipeline solution can optionally include a method to electronically import trading partner Purchase Orders into your financial / inventory software (or any other software system), eliminating the need to manually key in the order data. The Purchase Order is received by the EDI Pipeline system, translated into the specific format your software needs, and sent to your office to import. The file can be sent via any method desired, with the most popular being via email or FTP (to a specific server location).
