B2B & EDI Integration

Monitor and control business data flow securely in real time with an API-enabled EDI platform


To compete and grow in the burgeoning universe of digital business, you’ll need to move data faster and more efficiently than ever before within your enterprise and trading community.
EDI is a reliable way to exchange business documents quickly, but it doesn’t allow data exchange in the more open and mobile cloud environment that defines today’s digital business. Integration with APIs adds mobile capability, but also adds another data stream to manage.

Instead, you need to bring EDI and API together into a single, all around integration system known as B2B 360°. In an API-enabled EDI platform, APIs are used to open the EDI environment and access B2B services via other applications, portals and mobile apps. You can monitor and control data between your partners and customers more securely and in real time.
