WebEDI: Launch EDI by a few clicks
WebEDI is the easiest way for a supplier to launch an electronic data interchange (EDI). WebEDI is suitable even for customers that transfer fewer than ten documents each month. Receiving, sending and archiving of EDI messages takes place in a web browser, without any connection with a economic system (ERP).
ORiON webEDI, enables suppliers to easily process orders, issue and send invoices, delivery notes and handle other types of messages directly on the website. Via a secure protocol and with help of encryption you will be able to access your documents anywhere, anytime.

It also gives access to a number of smart upgrade services such as trustworthy archive of documents, operational factoring and management of product data.

When to consider switching to a full EDI?
ORiON WebEDI is very fast and simple solution of EDI communication through which a supplier can almost instantly start using electronic data exchange with partners and, for example, meet the requirements of a supply chain. However, since it is not a solution integrated into an information system (using a web application), it is necessary to manually transcribe both incoming and outgoing documents. This does not give access to the biggest benefits of EDI communication, although a supplier can still save costs on printing, postage and archiving of documents.
20 and more documents per month = time to consider integrating EDI into a company system
If there is an increase in business transactions and numbers of EDI messages on the side of a supplier, the administration required for processing of documents might become impossible to manage in time. Then, it is obvious to consider switching from webEDI to classic EDI, which is connected with a company system and makes all activities automatic.
