EDI is the logical consequence of using modern information and communication technologies in enterprises. Paper documents are replaced by electronic documents and data exchange with your business partners employs standard formats – independent of communication protocols or transmission media.
The EDI implementations of map7 Consulting are not subject to specific technologies – instead we place great emphasis on solutions which are perfectly optimized for the needs of your business and/or industry.
In the global environment of an enterprise the resources “time” and “information” are becoming increasingly important. Quick and reliable communications, together with fast response to new demands, become strategic advantages. Our solutions help you achieve these and even more:
With our services in the EAI sector we provide in-house and seamless exchange of information. Data and processes from various applications and different locations are subsumed into one IT infrastructure.
EAI is a reliable and cost-effective concept for companies with heterogeneous IT applications. Information from different locations and/or departments is linked by a stable system infrastructure. The possibilities of integration thereby range from simple data exchange to automated workflows.
In many sectors, the use of EDI has become a key prerequisite in establishing business relationships. This means many companies must now decide whether to invest in system solutions, perform updates on existing solutions or fall back on an outsourcing approach. However it is not only investment costs that need to be considered, but also the personnel resources required for an internal solution, which also entail costs.
With 'cloud7 – B2B', map7 Consulting delivers an outsourcing solution that enables you to handle in full any tasks you are faced with in the EDI area. We link up your internal systems and connect your business partners, giving you access to our portal so that you can monitor all data and processes; you have full control at all times thanks to a comprehensive reporting system.
'cloud7' functions as middleware, which means it is the communications endpoint for business partners wishing to transfer data to yourselves; we forward the data to you following conversion (where necessary) or a plausibility check.
Data that you send to your business partners is sent to us first, converted and forwarded to your customers (or held for collection by your customers).
A sophisticated authorisation and role system makes it possible to assign various tasks to internal users. You can assign purely monitoring rights, for example, configuration rights at the next level and, in the final instance, developer rights for mapping and workflow adaptations. Predefined roles or user rights can be applied, while your own definitions facilitate fine gradations and combinations in the granting of authorisation.
Because we are well aware of the importance of efficient data exchange processes in your everyday business, we offer a service level agreement (SLA) under which we are available for you 24 hours, seven days a week.
Development of guidelines
We will be happy to assist you with the development of interface -guidelines. These enables you to define detailed EDI data formats for your business partners. In addition a comprehensive export for distribution to your business partners is possible – the path to error-free communication is paved!
Additionally, test messages for your EDI partners can be reconciled with these guidelines. We can also provide a structural description of message formats for import into specified converters such as Microsoft BizTalk and Seeburger BIC.
Based on previously implemented projects, we are highly experienced in handling various ERP systems, message structures and a variety of other systems and techniques.
We will thus be pleased to support you in advance of process development or in the joint optimization of existing processes. We guarantee efficient, effective and individual implementation of your data exchange processes.
