The right connection of retail traders with their suppliers is an important leverage in the optimization of trade cooperation.

This means not only a better flow of goods from manufacturer to customer but also an improved flow of data between both enterprises.

Exchanging e.g., orders or invoices as paperless receipts allows you to omit tedious manual tasks. Exchange of sales figures between retailers, wholesale and industry is a prerequisite of successful merchandise planning. A central problem in EDI (eletronic data interchange) is to interconnect inhomogenous IT environments between retailers and their suppliers.

ERP systems on both sides can exchange electronic documents using the nmedia clearing center. Once connected with its Business Integration Service, retailers and suppliers can receive and send orders, order confirmations, invoices, sales figures, etc.

The nmedia service can be characterized by its ready adaption to each EDI interface. A participant needs one export/import interface only to partake in EDI. nmedia shall adapt to any given format and check if data was processed successfully by your trading partner
