Electronic data interchange (EDI)

Electronic data interchange (EDI)

Electronic data exchange with business partners

Fully automated EDI communication directly from winweb-food eliminates the need for complex EDI converters and interfaces to third-party providers.


The various data exchange formats (message types for price lists, orders, shipping notifications, forwarding orders, invoices, incoming goods notifications, payment notifications, for example) are processed fully automatically in winweb-food and transmitted electronically. Significant cost savings are the result, since you do not need a sophisticated EDI converter and third-party interfaces.

Winweb-EDI is characterized by easy handling and fast implementation of new data exchange formats.
The integration of e-mail or De-Mail services is also available to you.
