How to Manage EDI Transactions and Documents in Sage X3
Electronic data interchange (EDI) isn’t new, but it’s a technology that many companies haven’t yet adopted. It’s a great way to go paperless, and for companies that would like to implement this feature, its ease of use and value become even stronger when combined with Sage X3.
The Sage X3 platform allows key elements of the business process, such as purchase orders, shipping notices, and invoices to be sent and received via a standardized protocol.
With this computer-to-computer exchange of documents among trading partners, the need to enter data repetitively is minimized or eliminated altogether. Not having to key data more than once reduces the chances of human error and makes the data more accurate. In addition, exchanging data electronically with a standardized protocol is much faster, speeding up transactions for both parties.
In addition to EDI integration, the Sage X3 platform utilizes a module that automates other business processes and improves productivity, including:
- Electronically receiving accounts payable invoices from vendors or remote offices and having them automatically transfer to accounts payable processor queues.
- Quickly matching purchase orders, receivers, and vendor invoices for rapid reconciliation.
- Electronically viewing accounts payable invoices and supporting documents and routing them for approval with automated electronic workflows.
- Electronically organizing files for fast, easy retrieval.
