EDI Desktop Functionality
EDI Desktop is an environment for sites that must comply with retail or grocery industry EDI requirements. EDI Desktop can be used, as a front end validation system integrated to your current ERP or as a stand alone application used with an on premise EDI system or a hosted on network translation service.
EDI Desktop handles inbound 850s, 875s, 860s, and outbound 855s, 810s, 880s, 882s, and 865s as well as non-detail and detail 856’s with bar coding. These EDI transactions must be translated by an EDI translator into the EDI Desktop file layouts.
This is the welcome screen of EDI Desktop.
This is the main menu of EDI Desktop. From here we can begin the tour of EDI Desktop. From the Main Menu, all functions within EDI Desktop can be accessed.
The system setup subsystem in EDI Desktop is used to setup the environment for all inbound and outbound processes. Setting up the system parameters is the first step in configuring the EDI Desktop system.
System parameters such as company name, logo, date format, ASN counters ect. are setup here.
Retailers, ship to addresses, products, buy codes, transporters, invoice charges and tax tables are setup here.
Inbound functions include the import of translated EDI files, Excel spreadsheets, CSV files and XML, the viewing of newly imported orders as well as the order summary and individual orders.
Outbound Functions include the building of ASNs, order confirmations and invoices as well as printing of labels and the export of data to the EDI Translator.
The Reports windows gives you access to all of EDI Desktop reports. These include: retailer item reports, item summaries, outstanding orders, new orders by customer, new orders, orders by ship to by PO numbers, orders by Item/SKU by program, orders by ship date by Item/SKU. The Reports menu will appear on the side when applicable. All reports are generated using Crystal Reports.
Purchase order and purchase order change data that has been translated is selected for import.
Once the data has been imported, the system shows you what has been imported and allows you to print out summary reports or the sales orders.
Once an order has been imported it can be viewed, modified and printed. This order is the basis of building the ASN.
The order subsystem is EDI Desktop allows you to do the following tasks: View POs, handle PO changes dynamically, and all details related to those orders and changes. View packing detail. Print a number of operational reports including packing slips and purchase orders.
All ASN functions are accessed via the icons on the left hand side of the screen. In the next screens we will look at the various ASN structures. These are all supported by EDI Desktop.

EDI Desktop follows the structure of the ASN, so we start by selecting the retailer.
The ship-to location is chosen.
All general shipment information including the transporter, shipment date, pack method and bill of lading is entered.
Purchase orders to be shipped on this ASN are now selected.
The purchase orders by ship date to be shipped on this ASN are then selected.
The ASN must be given a number. This number becomes the BSN02 in the EDI message.
We are now ready to pack our shipment!
Carton Number UCC128 Number UCC128 or MH10 labels must now be printed for shipment. We will now generate the labels.

Once the UCC 128 labels have been fixed to the correct boxes, your ASN is ready to be exported and translated into EDI for transmission to the retailer.
Invoices can be generated within EDI Desktop
EDI Desktop imports and exports flat files produced by the Liaison Delta EDI Translator or other compliant EDI translator. EDI Desktop uses Label Matrix to print UCC128 and MH10 labels. Label Matrix is called seamlessly by EDI Desktop. EDI Desktop can be used as a validation centre for all EDI Data Prior to it being exported to an accounting system.
