1  Presented By: Steve Cromer – Stein Industries Inc Mike Mina – Logan Consulting QAD Midwest Users Group EDI Case Study

2 EDI Determining Factors  Automate entering large orders  Create a constant and easy order stream from a customer  Automate invoicing for our largest customers  Give select customers better visibility to lifecycle of their order  Give select customer better visibility to our inventory

3 Our Old Solution  Only did 850’s and 810’s  All incoming orders loaded, no error\warning checking  Complex solution between 4 windows server and a Linux server  Adding documents or TP’s was very difficult and needed a specific programmer to do this.  Used a variety of software and server to complete tasks (Optio, Lexicom/Gentran, Windows scheduled tasks, Web administration to setup TP’s, difficult to upgrade.)

4 New Solution  QAD supported EDI module  Variety of options for support to include QAD  Use stock QAD, without customizations  Use stock QAD screens to support the application  Visibility to errors/warnings on order entry, and outbound documents  Ability to add standard EDI documents without complex customizations  All the data is contained in QAD, easier to create Browses to see the data

5 EDI Documents  Inbound 850 (Purchase Order)  Outbound 855 (PO Acknowledgement)  Outbound 856 (Advanced Shipping Notice)  Outbound 810 (Invoice)  Outbound 846 (Warehouse Inventory)  Inbound/Outbound 997 (receipts)

6 Testing with Partners  Coordinating with TP’s, having regular communications  Create a new mailbox for testing/New Production  Discuss rounding methods for invoices vs the stock method of QAD  Account for all possible Ship To’s  Discuss how to handle Orders with multiple lines of the same item  Same or different ship dates  Determine a method to calculate deliver time when items are not in stock (MRP)

7 Testing with Partners  Determine how to handle invoicing  There is an option to post the invoice during Shipper Confirmation  Determine with TP how to handle PO changes  Line deletions  Item number changes  Order cancelations  Create a separate mailbox in Gentran for testing

8 Challenges  Customer cross references, using 1.16 or 32Soft Excel loader  Ship To addresses not setup in QAD as Customers  Understand how you want to load the orders, what to kick out on errors and what to pass through with warnings  Setting up notifications on documents outbound and inbound  Automating sending and receiving documents with scripts  Transitioning Legacy EDI orders to the New EDI system (Invoices Via)  Use Channel codes to track EDI orders

9 Supporting the Solution  VAN internet portal, setup notifications  Send the session reports as the internal notifications to the business  Running the EDI utility screens, 35 series Character vs.NETUI  Creating a clear process on who does what (Business vs. IT)  Send alerts from Gentran/Lexicom  Create Browses inside QAD to help maintain and monitor EDI documents
