EDI VAN Services

Introduction to EDI and its Components

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) refers to a process of exchange of business documents between two trading partners in simple, standard, structured, secured and digital form. EDI integration helps transmission of business related documents such as all types of Invoices, Purchase orders, Funds transfer receipts, Shipping bills, all financial information, etc. EDI becomes a helping hand to eliminate paper based services and system, reduce data entry efforts, and excels the business cycle.


    Components of EDI

  • Standard Document Format – Standard format is required which is as per standard technical structuring and agreed upon by both the parties.
  • Translator – Translator to convert the raw data into meaningful information as per the specification issued by the mapper.
  • Mapper – Mapper to create conversion specification.
  • Communication Software – It helps to transmit data & convert business related documents into a standard and appropriate format.
  • Communication Network – Communication network bridges between the trading parties involved in the EDI transmission. It majorly includes Modem, VAN, and Point-to-point link.

What is EDI VAN?

A value-added network (VAN) is nothing but a private - hosted service which acts as a catalyst for businesses/companies to send & receive or rather say, share data to its counterparts in a secured and reliable way. Value-added networks are the common mode of communication in order to facilitate electronic data interchange (EDI) between two individual companies/trading partners dealing with each other. Ideally, VANs are set up with audit capabilities. So, the data being exchanged is validated, and formatted appropriately before it is transferred to other party. VANs are also referred to as turnkey communications lines as well.

Unlike traditional approach, an EDI VAN (Value-Added Network) offers a B2B network of electronic data communications. It is all-together a network that includes an array of ‘value added’ services and facilitated communication protocols. EDI VAN offers seamless as well as automated communication channels between the trading partners. It also offers various formats for EDI translations. Thus, it results in proficient and effective process and management.

Scalability is key to EDI VANs.
