EDI MAPPING IS THE PROPER WAY OF HAVING DATA CONVERTED INTO AN EDI FILE FORMAT, WHILE HAVING THE ABILITY OF CHANGING IT BACK AGAIN.
Luminous Solutions acts as your EDI service provider. We assume responsibility for mapping inbound and outbound EDI messages to your trading partners. Our extent of experience and expertise in this field is unmatched by any in-house effort.
There are two directions to which EDI mapping software determines a destination:
EDI holds standards to mapping out data, which determine and establish the direction of information from business and accounting software. Both outbound and inbound data require a proper arrangement and format so that it conforms to the requirements set out by the trading partner.
When receiving inbound data, a conversion must also be done in a proper format. There are several destinations for mapping out data. Specific fixed length layouts, applications, all readable documents, are all destinations to which EDI software can help with.
Data translation is the process of verifying and accepting files when sending and receiving EDI data.
EDI data translation includes:
- Communication protocols support
- Validating transactions
- EDI standards management
- And more
PROPER STEPS TO TRANSLATE DATA
After the file is broken down, the sender is then identified, along with the individual transactions. Validation of a legitimate trading partner is the next step, followed by the validation of the file structure and individual data, according to the EDI standards. The final step is an outbound Functional Acknowledgement to the trading partner.
