When your customer demands that you exchange data via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), Global Shop Solutions has the ability to keep you ahead of your competition. EDI is the exchange of routine business transactions in a computer-processable format. EDI Translation Software (Trusted Links Windows by Inovis) communicates with your trading partners through a Value Added Network (VAN).
EDI Mapping Software (Catalyst Mapper) translates information from standard EDI format into Global Shop’s application format, or vice versa.
Global Shop offers a seamless interface with Inovis, the most commonly used VAN.

Global Shop EDI Services
Global Shop’s EDI consultants will act as liaison between you and Inovis. A separate map must be built for each of your trading partners’ transactions. Global Shop consultants will build your maps from scratch as well as modify existing maps.
“The Scheduling EDI Module has been fantastic…That populates right
away. We don’t need somebody in the office full-time typing in delivery
dates by hand, and when a date is changed, we can get it out through
the entire system right away. With the Global Shop EDI, we are
interfacing directly with some of our customers, and this is a
tremendous help in both customer service and on-time delivery. We
definitely have more grasp of what’s coming out of our company in terms
of on-time delivery. We just go into the system, download the data, and
it works out great. Our Global Shop system really keeps some of our
bigger customers very happy with us.”
