EDI: Electronic Data Interchange Module

Merlin’s fully integrated EDI module allows you to seamlessly trade with your customers and suppliers – sending and receiving orders electronically, whilst also automatically triggering the relevant order acknowledgements and/or invoices.

Benefits of EDI

  • Reduced Delays – Delays are caused primarily by two factors. Paper documents may take days to transport from one location to another. In addition, manual processing delays are caused by the need to key, file, retrieve, and compare data.
  • Reduced Labour Costs – In non-EDI systems, manual processing is required for data keying, document storing and retrieving, sorting, matching, reconciling, envelope stuffing, stamping, signing, etc.
  • Improved Documentation – EDI permits user access to a vast amount of detailed transaction data.

EDI Sales

  • Sales Orders – Have customer orders directly streamed into SOP for immediate picking and shipping.
  • Sales Invoices – Having pre populated the customer’s Customer Maintenance with the relevant EDI details, on invoicing the customer the invoice will be packaged for distribution back into their system via EDI.

EDI Purchasing

  • Purchase Orders – Similarly, when creating Purchase Orders, these are dynamically sent via EDI – using the EDI details held on within Supplier Maintenance.
  • Purchase Invoices – When receiving EDI invoices back into your system, you can set tolerances to notify you of changes in prices, costs, dates etc. Which you are then able to accept or decline, if declined, the supplier invoice be put on hold.

Customer testimonials:

John Taylor Fasteners
How has Merlin helped your business grow?
Merlin has allowed us to better define our activity in a number of market places. When we were purely servicing the fasteners it was a very narrow and bespoke field, we had to learn as we go with that diversification, and the quality of information we have been able to extract from Merlin has allowed us to act upon and grow into new places.
What are your favourite Merlin features?
The elements of Merlin we have particularly appreciated as a business are it’s a very simple package to pick up. It’s a very intuitive learning curve for new staff joining the business. Being a small family company and not having a dedicated IT department, or training HR department it’s a very important asset in terms of cost and how easily it integrates new staff into the business.
Equally there are other benefits within its functionality that we found very much a time saver. There is an import facility that allows us to bring pricing in from our suppliers in the form of csv or excel documents, which allows us to update and constantly stay on top of prices changes, which was a very manually intensive process prior to introducing Merlin.
