  • When is it Advantageous to Embed Your AX EDI Solution?

    March 27, 2014

    There are multiple schools of thought regarding the imbedding of an EDI solution into AX. Let me first define what I mean when I talk about imbedding. Imbedding a solution can be as deeply integrated. Deeply integrated solutions might have their own screens in AX, their own schema in the AX Object Tree (AOT), their own integrated AX Workflows, and even customizations to core AX objects. Now, at the opposite end of the spectrum in terms of imbedded solutions, you might have an EDI solution that simply stores additional data in AX tables or operates even more arms-length by simply integrating data via AIF Web Services or via the AX .NET Business Connector. The question is how much imbedding is too much? Let’s look at the pros and cons of imbedding.

    Imbedding -- Pros

    Data Availability – Many times, EDI data comes with critical data that may not have a place for storage in AX. By imbedding the EDI adaptor’s data in the AX Object Tree, it can easily be added to screens, grids, searches, reports, etc.

    Customization – As hard as many AX sites try, the ease of customization of AX lends so much to making the ERP software experience more streamlined, … more robust. Imbedded EDI adaptor technology brings a multitude of opportunities for internal integration with other customizations. This can provide numerous synergies with existing systems, customizations and business processes unattainable with an arms-length approach.

    Imbedding – Cons

    Difficult Upgrades – The argument is made that AX upgrades might be more involved. In prior AX revisions, XPO technology arguably made upgrading solutions much more involved and troublesome. With AX 2012, the model and model-store technology has alleviated much of the headache. (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh335181.aspx)

    Fully Off-Premise EDI Solution – Is it also argued by some that you can get to the point of having all EDI components in the cloud without having your AX system in the cloud. While this is in theory an available solution, it requires opening AIF Web Service endpoints directly into your AX system from the Internet. This has huge security risks, especially with a direct connection to the lifeblood of your company – your data.

    Bottom-line: A Stable, Available Solution

    Whether imbedding or not, completely vetting AX upgrades is best practice. Therefore, even abbreviated re-testing between revisions is beneficial to avoiding any surprises. With each AX major release, new, earth-shattering technologies have been released by Microsoft – model stores in AX 2012, partitioning in 2012 R2, etc. Best practices would always, always, always dictate retesting inputs and outputs – your EDI transactions flows with AX regardless of imbedding or not. With BSI EDI, you have the ability to imbed from a little to a lot, letting you find a balance between system security, data availability and EDI efficiency.

  • When it Comes to EDI, What is an Order Management Model and Why Should I Care?

    April 29, 2014

    One of the first questions an EDI provider will ask is, “Who are your trading partners?” The second is most often, “what is your Order Management Model with each?” Order Management Models (OMMs) can be confusing. This article seeks to explain the concept.

    What is an OMM?

    Order Management Models refer to how you ship product to your trading partner. Some of the most common OMMs are described below.

    Direct to Store (DTS) – In a Direct to Store model, you receive orders for shipment directly to your trading partners’ stores or otherwise retail locations

    Direct to Distribution Center (DTDC) – In a Direct to DC model, you receive orders for shipment directly to your trading partners’ distribution centers (warehouses)

    Direct to Consumer (DTC) – In a Direct to Consumer model, you receive orders for shipment directly to your trading partners’ customers

    Cross-Dock – In a Cross-Dock model, you receive orders for shipment to your trading partners’ distribution centers but with special labeling

    What are Some Special Considerations with Each OMM?

    With Direct to Store and Direct to Distribution Center, you have probably the most straight forward arrangement – orders are usually received with one shipping address.

    With Direct to Consumer shipments, you may find yourself subject to a whole host of requirements for shipping – custom packing slips and other documents, custom labeling and a good amount of special data flows in and back out. You will also usually find yourself being asked to support multiple delivery/shipping methods – sometimes quite a few options. Consumer shipments like these are often the result of website order sales but may be walk-in special orders as well.

    Cross-Dock – With Cross-Dock shipments, the most common requirements revolve around consolidation of shipments (and therefore Advanced Shipping Notices – ASNs). Usually the shipments are consolidated by purchase order and by distribution center but may be more or less granular. Further, you may find you are being required to apply cross-dock labels to your shipping cartons. In this type of scenario, a cross-dock label conveys the warehouse information as well as the “mark-for” store information. The presence of this information allows your trading partner to easily and intelligently split your shipment by store and combine it with shipments going to each store from other suppliers.

    What are Some Other OMMs Worth Mentioning?

    Blanket/Release Orders – Blanket/Release orders actually end up resembling direct-to-store or direct-to-distribution center orders usually. In this model, you would receive a blanket order showing the trading partners’ commitment to buy over a given period, usually a year. The blanket order doesn’t reflect demand specifically but is often more useful as a forecast of demand. Each release order, however, functions as a stand-alone order for shipment to a store or warehouse. The impact to you is usually one of information exchange. Many times the blanket and release numbers must be received, show on documents regarding the shipment and returned back on other EDI documents.

    So Why Should I Care?

    You may be wondering why you should care about what OMMs you participate in with your trading partners. “Isn’t that my EDI software provider’s responsibility to figure out?” The unequivocal answer is “No!” Your EDI provider needs to have 100% transparency in terms of your scenarios under which you do business in the EDI world. They use this information to ensure that when they test your EDI flow with your internal team, that they are in fact testing all relevant scenarios. If you share incomplete information during testing and implementation, you risk incompletely testing your solution and enduring many unpleasant surprises after your go-live. A little preparation and research goes a long way.

    With BSI EDI, you can not only support all of the above OMMs, but many more variations. Give us a call to discuss your specific scenario.

  • Experience

    Our majority owner/partner, Larry Knoch, M.B.A, MCPD-EA, has been involved in ERP and EDI for over 25 years, and involved in e-Commerce, Exact/Macola solutions and Microsoft Dynamics for nearly 12 years. In addition, our staff is certified and well-versed in EDI and ERP systems.

  • Certified Staff

    Our staff at BSI are certified in their individual fields--whether it be Microsoft Dynamics AX, GP, NAV, Exact Macola, Globe Next or Fourth Shift. We are here to help!

  • SaaS or On-Premise

    On-Premise
    "On-Premise" is the term used to describe a traditional model, where software and applications are housed on a company's own servers, at their location, and are maintained by internal IT staff. In this situation, the company has total control over their own ERP software.

    SaaS
    "SaaS" means Software as a Service. These are essentially software programs that live on the internet. One example of this is Google Docs--this is a program that is online and keeps all saved documents "in the cloud" rather than on your own computer.

  • Competitive Pricing

    BSI offers pricing that is extremely competitive in both a purchase scenario and a lease scenario. Please call us to describe your needs and we'll promptly send you a quote.

  • Compliant Labels

    Are you required to print compliant labels and not sure how that will work once on an automated EDI system? BSI is here to help with several options that will simplify the label printing and reduce the possibility of errors.

  • Warehouse Management Systems

    The BSI EDI module will work with multiple warehouse management systems. This capability helps to fit the solution to your business, rather than your business to the solution.

  • Microsoft Dynamics GP Support

    We have resources available to support your Microsoft Dynamics GP investment. We can assist with upgrades, support and general questions to advanced setup and operational questions.

  • BSI EDI--Making EDI Easier!

    Here at BSI, we understand how tough change can be. In this fast-paced world, change seems to happen daily, especially in industry. Even small companies are affected by these new requirements, software upgrades and necessary integrations. BSI is capable of helping you understand EDI and how it can mesh with the business you're already doing. Contact us with any questions you have and we'll be glad to answer them.

  • Do I Need An EDI Expert on Staff Internally?

    With BSI EDI, an internal EDI Expert is not necessary. Our application is easy to install, takes up minimal space on your system, is user-friendly, and has help videos and white papers at your fingertips.

  • What Questions Should I Ask a Potential EDI Provider?

    This is a general guideline of some important questions to ask an EDI provider before signing on the dotted line.


    1. May I see a demonstration of how the data integrates into and out of your ERP System?
    2.Can you, the EDI solution provider, meet all my trading partner requirements including documents, standards required (X12, EDIFACT, Tradacoms, XML...) and communication protocols such as VAN, AS2 or FTPs?
    3. What kind of customizations, if any, need to be done to integrate the EDI solution?
    4. Does the host ERP need any customizations?
    5. How are upgrades handled?
    6. Does the solution need to be deployed in the cloud or on-premise?
    7. Is the EDI provider certified for the ERP System?
    8. How many workstations can use the EDI solution?
    9. Do I need EDI resources on staff to manage?
    10. What transaction fees are there, if any?
    11. What kind of support and backup is offered after integration is complete? Is support included in the basic price, and for how long?
    12. What maintenance fees are involved after integration is complete?
    13. If desired, can I do my own mapping and compliance?
    14. Is there a notification system of errors or warnings?
    15. How will the EDI solution work with my current WMS and/or 3PL systems?
    16. Does the EDI software allow you to see past documents that were submitted?
    17. Can the EDI provider provide services above and beyond traditional EDI, like labels, packing slips, etc.

  • How to Avoid Wasting Money Using BSI EDI!

    Hiring and training in-house EDI experts can be expensive and increase your cost-per-transaction significantly. BSI EDI provides the EDI software that anyone can run at a much lower cost.

    Trying to stay current and up-to-date on X12 and Retailer EDI Guides is a huge time commitment for employees. If changes are ignored, this can cause chargebacks, potentially lost sales and even lost customers. BSI EDI has experienced EDI professionals that stay up to date for you on all your retailers' requirements, saving your employees time.

    Using BSI EDI software eliminates the need to have an in-house EDI IT software consultant. This saves even more on your per-transaction cost by reducing software maintenance and repairs.

    By automating your EDI with BSI, you remove the need to move data back and forth manually, which uses an abundance of labor time. Manually entering transactions can also result in chargebacks and sales losses. BSI EDI automated documents ensure accuracy.

  • Do You Feel You've Outgrown Webforms?

    Is the cost of manual data entry consuming countless hours that could be better used to service customers and grow your business? In addition, are you finding a large rate of errors due to manually entering EDI transactions into and out of your accounting system? Moving from Webforms to an integrated solution to your ERP system might be the answer to your issues.

  • Basic EDI Transactions Overview

    What is EDI?

    EDI stands for Electronic Data Interchange. It is a standard way of exchanging business data between different companies. There are several ways of exchanging this data--some companies will use VANs (Value Added Networks), some will use the internet. As companies strive to increase the speed and efficiency of buying, selling and trading information, EDI has become increasingly widespread and necessary.

    EDI is typically used for normal business documents like purchase orders and invoices, among other transactions. It acts as a translator to send the correct information needed by an end user, in the format requested.

    Some Common EDI Transactions

    850 (Purchase Order)
    The 850 is more commonly known as a PO, and it is an electronic form of a Purchase Order. A PO typically has very specific information for the suppliers such as item names ordered, item numbers, quantity ordered, shipping information and billing information.

    856 (Advance Ship Notice)
    An Advanced Ship Notice, or ASN, gives the buyer a heads up that the order has been shipped. This is very similar to a packing slip, just in electronic format. It includes important information like the number of items to be shipped, how they are packed and what carrier will be used.

    810 (Invoice)
    The electronic invoice is a document that is sent from the seller to the buyer. The included information can vary depending on individual buyer's requirements, but usually contains remit-to address and name, item details and bill-to information.

    Other EDI Documents
    There are many other documents commonly traded via EDI, such as an 855 (Purchase Order Acknowledgement), a 997 (Functional Acknowledgement), a 943 (Warehouse Stock Transfer Shipment Advice), an 846 (Inventory Inquiry) and so on. The American National Standards Institute governs what the document names are, for many different industries and types. See our Links section for a link to the ANSI website.

    Helping You Make The Most of Your Dynamics GP Investment ...

    It’s not just about compliance anymore. A good Supply Chain solution brings you the goods for streamlining your entire supply chain. BSI Supply Chain Management (SCM) lets you stay in compliance, with ANSI, VICS, UCS and more Electronic Data Interchange capabilities, supporting both sell-side and buy-side transactions. Couple that with support for multiple Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) and you truly have the option to fit the solution to your business and not the other way around. But BSI SCM takes it one step further, with support for CSV, XML and cXML (Ariba) transactions, coupled with support for AS2 systems, multiple FTP, FTPs sites and more, and you truly have a flexible Supply Chain Solution that you can grow with!

    It used to be all about compliance - “What do we have to do as a company to qualify for our customer’s business?” The businessscape is changing and it’s also about integration - “How can we use the investment to also benefit our company?” BSI Supply Chain Management (SCM) does just that. You get all of the compliance functionality, but also the features and functions that let you streamline the order flow -- both customer-side and supplier-side.

    Transaction Exchange Formats
    What is Electronic Data Interchange? It’s a format for exchanging your orders (or other data) in a machine-readable way. EDI is one of many business formats in use nowadays. BSI SCM gives you support for a rich gamut of those formats.

    • cXML Format (Ariba) - Exchange Transactions via this Popular Portal
    • XML Format - You can exchange orders and other transactions with many sources or destinations -- eCommerce sites, vendors, etc.
    • CSV Format - Have a supplier that can’t or won’t accept EDI or XML? Send them CSV in an automated fashion. Import order CSV files ... the possibilities are endless!
    • Traditional EDI - Exchange Transactions in many EDI formats (ANSI, VICS, UCS, EDIFACT, etc)
    • Integrates with Most Popular EDI Standards and Versions

    Getting the Data There
    Transactions are just half of the equation. What about delivery? BSI SCM gives your the flexibility to connect to multiple disparate locations to exchange transactions directly or indirectly in many different procols, and the simplicity to easily connect to a Value Added Network (VAN). Why do you need the flexibility? Some customers or suppliers demand a direct connection (like AS2), whereas others allow you to exchange transactions via a VAN (like SPS Commerce).

    •Traditional VAN Service - We have setup wizards for SPS Commerce, as well as other FTP-based VAN services
    • Easily setup exchange with an AS2 service (Wal-Mart, Dollar General and others require this).
    • FTP and FTPs - You can direct-connect with your customer or supplier if that’s what it takes as well - via standard FTP or secure/encrypted FTP!
    • HTTP, HTTPs - You can also send and receive via HTTP push and get, or secure HTTP
    • Have a supplier or customer that still wants to exchange via email -- you’ve got that option too, with support for POP3/SMTP and SMTPs
    • Integrates with Most Popular Value Added Networks

    Robust Interface to Your Accounting System
    BSI SCM is an automated solution - it’s designed with you in mind - the smaller/medium-sized enterprise that might or might not have a person dedicated to managing supply chain relationships. What does this mean for the users? BSI SCM can be configured to automatically exchange day-to-day transactions: inbound, outbound, etc. and simply “notify” when those processes are completed. Exceptions are the only thing that must be dealt with -- items not cross-referenced, unrecognized shipto’s, etc. Take a look below to see some more about how our SCM solution works with your accounting/distribution system.

    •Works with Dynamics GP 10, 2010, 2010 R2 and 2013

    A good Supply Chain solution brings you the goods for streamlining your entire supply chain. BSI Supply Chain Management (SCM) lets you stay in compliance, with ANSI, VICS, UCS and more Electronic Data Interchange capabilities, supporting both sell-side and buy-side transactions. Couple that with support for multiple Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) and you truly have the option to fit the solution to your business and not the other way around. But BSI SCM takes it one step further, with support for CSV, XML and cXML (Ariba) transactions, coupled with support for AS2 systems, multiple FTP, FTPs sites and more, and you truly have a flexible Supply Chain Solution that you can grow with!

    It used to be all about compliance - “What do we have to do as a company to qualify for our customer’s business?” The businessscape is changing and it’s also about integration - “How can we use the investment to also benefit our company?” BSI Supply Chain Management (SCM) does just that. You get all of the compliance functionality, but also the features and functions that let you streamline the order flow -- both customer-side and supplier-side.

    Transaction Exchange Formats
    What is Electronic Data Interchange? It’s a format for exchanging your orders (or other data) in a machine-readable way. EDI is one of many business formats in use nowadays. BSI SCM gives you support for a rich gamut of those formats.
    • cXML Format (Ariba) - Exchange Transactions via this Popular Portal
    • XML Format - You can exchange orders and other transactions with many sources or destinations -- eCommerce sites, vendors, etc.
    • CSV Format - Have a supplier that can’t or won’t accept EDI or XML? Send them CSV in an automated fashion. Import order CSV files ... the possibilities are endless!
    • Traditional EDI - Exchange Transactions in many EDI formats (ANSI, VICS, UCS, EDIFACT, etc)
    • Integrates with Most Popular EDI Standards and Versions

    Getting the Data There
    Transactions are just half of the equation. What about delivery? BSI SCM gives your the flexibility to connect to multiple disparate locations to exchange transactions directly or indirectly in many different procols, and the simplicity to easily connect to a Value Added Network (VAN). Why do you need the flexibility? Some customers or suppliers demand a direct connection (like AS2), whereas others allow you to exchange transactions via a VAN (like SPS Commerce).
    • Traditional VAN Service - We have setup wizards for SPS Commerce, as well as other FTP-based VAN services
    • Easily setup exchange with an AS2 service (Wal-Mart, Dollar General and others require this).
    • FTP and FTPs - You can direct-connect with your customer or supplier if that’s what it takes as well - via standard FTP or secure/encrypted FTP
    • HTTP, HTTPs - You can also send and receive via HTTP push and get, or secure HTTP
    • Have a supplier or customer that still wants to exchange via email -- you’ve got that option too, with support for POP3/SMTP and SMTPs
    • Integrates with Most Popular Value Added Networks

    Robust Interface to Your Accounting System
    BSI SCM is an automated solution - it’s designed with you in mind - the smaller/medium-sized enterprise that might or might not have a person dedicated to managing supply chain relationships. What does this mean for the users? BSI SCM can be configured to automatically exchange day-to-day transactions: inbound, outbound, etc. and simply “notify” when those processes are completed. Exceptions are the only thing that must be dealt with -- items not cross-referenced, unrecognized shipto’s, etc. Take a look below to see some more about how our SCP solution works with your accounting/distribution system.
