EDI Communications within NAV Who’s already using EDI? EDI Options: o Lanham o Lanham + SPS Commerce – a hosted solution o 3 rd Party Software o Other hosted service providers (ex: GXS, Redtail, DataMasons)
Lanham Pros: Eliminates the need for other translation tools No more double entry of documents in multiple systems The Lanham piece can be / has been updated with food specific functionality JF library and internal expertise continues to grow Control resides with customer Cons: Control resides with customer Communication piece must be handled by a third party » FTP scripts » Cleo Lexiom User interface could be more appealing
Lanham & JustFoodERP IB product offerings use the EDI solution built by Lanham & Associates as its core EDI platform. ANY EDI transaction can be mapped into the system Only specific transactions have functionality already built into the platform…
The Standard 800 Series Inbound Purchase Order – creates a NAV Sales Order document Inbound Purchase Order (Grocery) – creates a NAV Sales Order document Outbound Sales Invoice – sent from a NAV Posted Sales Invoice document Outbound Sales Invoice (Grocery) – sent from a NAV Posted Sales Invoice document
Watch Out… Cross References EDIout (totaling) requirements EDIout field requirements Barcode cross references may not need UOM references Missing / Changing TP Specs Change Management
The 900 Series – Warehousing & Intercompany Transactions Warehouse Stock Transfer Shipment Advice Sent from a NAV Purchase Order or Transfer Order document This transaction informs a location/warehouse to expect a receipt of product Supports Warehouse Receipt documents Can send up to 10 unique lot/serial no. combinations (with quantity per combination) per document line Warehouse Stock Transfer Receipt Advice Updates a NAV Purchase Order or Transfer Order document This transaction updates the NAV document with the product information that was actually received at the location/warehouse Supports Lot and Serial No. tracking (eg. creates Item Tracking when required) Supports Warehouse Receipt documents (eg. updates a warehouse receipt line if required)
The 900 Series – Warehousing & Intercompany Transactions Warehouse Shipping Order Sent from a NAV Sales Order or Transfer Order document This transaction informs a location/warehouse to make a shipment of product Warehouse Shipping Advice Updates a NAV Sales Order or Transfer Order Is the response to the 940 transaction This transaction updates the NAV document with the product information that was actually shipped from the location/warehouse Supports Lot and Serial No. tracking (eg. creates Item Tracking when required) Supports Warehouse Shipment documents (eg. updates a warehouse shipment line if required)
Watch Out… Warehouse Lot Requirements One to many & Many to one relationships Necessary Re-class
The 900 Series – Warehousing & Intercompany Transactions Warehouse Inventory Adjustment Advice creates a NAV EDI Inventory Adjustment document this transaction posts through as Physical Inventory Journal lines in NAV supports Lot and Serial No. tracking Other intercompany docs: Inbound Purchase Order (Intercompany) – creates a NAV Intercompany Sales Order document Outbound Purchase Order (Intercompany) – sent from a NAV Intercompany Purchase Order document
Vendor EDI Outbound Purchase Order sent from a NAV Purchase Order document Inbound Vendor Invoice Updates purchase order header and lines; primarily with qty to invoice and dollar amounts Purchase Order Confirmation Updates Purchase Order header and lines; primarily with quantity to receive, and shipment method details
The 200 Series – Freight EDI Motor Carrier Load Tender Transaction Outbound document used to offer (tender) a shipment to a load carrier; including scheduling, item and shipment details. Generated en masse, using the data from the logistics run document. Supporting details coming from warehouse shipments Transportation Carrier Shipment Status Inbound document, received from the load carrier to provide shippers with the status of shipments, including planned appointment dates, times and locations Updates details on the logistics run header and lines.
The 200 Series – Freight EDI Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice Inbound document providing freight invoice details Updates the NAV Freight Reconciliation document Subsequently creating a purchase invoice that would apply item charges to items on the referenced shipments Limited functionality depending on variability of data received
The 200 Series – Freight EDI Watchout.. Trouble with consistency and priority: What document is being used to identify a shipment to your carriers? Is this the same document that is identified on the invoice? How are your charges broken out on your freight invoices? By distance? By weight? By Pallet? How many different types of charges do you have?
Less Frequently Utilized 800s Advanced Shipment Notice (ASN) Sent from a Bill of Lading document Requires the E-Ship granule from Lanham & Associates Shipping and Billing Notice provides the recipient of a shipment with data for both receipt planning and payment generation. The Trading Partner will receive information including Shipment level, Order level, Pallet level, Carton level, and Item level information as well as the additional invoice detail. It is basically a way to reduce the redundancy of the 856 and 810 by combining them in one document.
Less Frequently Utilized 800s Credit/Debit Adjustment creates a NAV EDI A/R Adjustment document this transaction posts through to the Customer Ledger as sales journal entries Lockbox (eg. Bank Deposit) creates a NAV Bank Deposit Worksheet this transaction is processed through to a NAV Bank Deposit transaction Direct Store Delivery Summary Information provides a summary of sales invoices without product details 810 Credit Memo Requires additional granule (EDI Extended Doc Handling )
Less Frequently Utilized 800s Product Transfer and Resale Report Incorporated with new ‘Extended Sales’ functionality Creates a historical Posted Invoice document (without hitting customer or item ledgers) Calculates Rebates and Commissions just like regular Sales Order posting If there is a Sold-By Customer No., and the Credit Sold-By Customer flag is set, two sales journal lines are posted for the External Sale amount: a. A Credit to the Sold-By Customer b. An Invoice to the Bill-To Customer Supports periodic Commission and Rebate calculations
Less Frequently Utilized 800s 820 (outbound) An X Purchase Payment Advice is sent to a supplier when payment is made, especially in the case of an EFT (electronic funds transfer). This document provides suppliers the ability to reconcile which invoices have been paid in full for any given payment. 846 (Inventory Advice outbound) An X Inventory Advice allows suppliers to report their product’s inventory information to their Trade Partner(s).
Less Frequently Utilized 800s 860 (PO change Request) Used by the buyer to request a change to previously submitted purchase order (850) Creates a sales quote to hold change details pertaining to an order Handles increased, decreased quantity transmissions (+- x), quantity replacements and deletions Event Notifications Built off of SMTP foundation in NAV Sends notifications on send or receipt of EDI docs with error Saves manual check of EDI doc status Can be used in other areas of NAV
EDIFACT Transmissions ORDERS Much like an 850 or 875 Standard Purchase Order Creates a Sales Order in NAV ORDRSP Purchase Order Response Sent from the seller to the buyer An acknowledgment of receipt and understanding of data Confirmation of acceptance or a proposal of amendment A notification of non-acceptance for all or part of the message Populates EDI PO Change Request in NAV Posting updates a purchase order doc in NAV with line and header details
EDIFACT Transmissions DESADV Despatch Advice Notifies recipient (seller) when material has been dispatched or will be ready for dispatch Much like an inbound 856 – notifies seller of incoming product Populates EDI PO Change Request in NAV Posting updates a purchase order doc in NAV with line and header details
