ELECTRONIC DATA INTERCHANGE SYSTEM
Today getting your retailers what they want on time is not enough. Retailers are putting larger and more complex demands on their suppliers. UPC barcodes on units, UCC-128 compliant shipping labels, carton content information, tracking and electronic transmission of advance ship notices (ASN) are basic requirements for most retailers. If the requirements are not met it can result in chargeback’s or even worse losing the retailer business. To improve your competitive edge EDI has been developed to meet these requirements and automation to provide a collection of standard message formats and simple processes for businesses to exchange data via any electronic messaging service
S.I.S.I. provides assistance with setup and compliance with your Retailer’s EDI Requirements from establishing your UCC license, Product Catalog and exchange mailbox.EDI will automatically exchange with your retailers the necessary electronic documents so that you will receive the retailers orders, Order updates and transmits to the retailer your product catalog, invoices and advance ship notice correctly according to your customers specification.

EDI in conjunction with our PSI uses the latest advances in bar-coding technologies for automatic product identification. Bar coding is used to identify individual products, employee numbers, shipping cartons and in virtually all situations where data needs to be timely, accurate and captured more cost effectively than the manual process of data entry or writing.
Scanning of bar codes and data are captured by wireless symbol PDA scanners allowing the shipping process to occur virtually anywhere within your facility without limiting your end-users to terminal or corded scanner.
PSI verifies units are packed correctly according to your customers specification and order, generating all the correct UCC-128 label format and shipping documents. EDI takes the information gathered and transmits to the specified retailer.
