What is EDI (Electronic Data Interchange)?

September 15th, 2014

You’ve heard the term EDI bandied around and you probably know that it’s a method of sending and receiving documents from other companies. From the 50,000 foot view EDI is a regulated and pre-defined method that enables trading partners who have a business relationship, say a customer and vendor, to exchange their usual business documents. The documents could be anything from Orders and Invoices, Shipping Requests, Advanced Shipping Notices, Credit, Remittances, etc. It sounds very Retail/Manufacturing related, but there are standardized sets of documents that cover all industries, such as Pharma, Healthcare, Manufacturing etc. Hence, there’s very likely an EDI document for any transaction you may encounter within your ERP or accounting system or Warehouse Management System.

Why EDI?

The ability to exchange documents electronically has a wide variety of benefits, which include increased efficiency from automating transactions, reduction of errors from manual entry, validation of content (via EDI standards and receiving software) to confirm transactions contain all they need to enable proper processing, traceability, reduced costs and faster processing. The alternative to the EDI model is the manual exchange of paper based documents, resulting in waste and inefficiency when processing the documents.

What are these standards?

There are a wide variety of industry specific EDI standards that have conventions that are specific to the region. For example, ANSI X12 is the North American standard, EDIFACT is the European standard and there are many others. The transaction sets could be X12 4010 that contain the different documents (PO, Invoice, Ship Notice etc.) The sets granulate even further into subsets for particular industries.

How is it done?

You’ll need to belong to a VAN (Value Added Network) or an agent that will provide the services for you.  There will need to be a bilateral relationship established between your unique account on the VAN and your trading partner’s unique account ID. Don’t worry if your partner’s VAN is not identical to yours. Most VANs can connect to each other, which is known as an interconnect.

Let’s take a simple example of a retailer and vendor setting up EDI. The relationship is now in place and the retailer sends an order that will be received by the EDI software, known as a Translator. It would then be validated and an acknowledgement would be sent back to the sender. The receiver would now have visibility of the PO. After the process is completed, other choices would now be available, such as importing the document into an accounting system or even using the EDI software to turn the order into an invoice to send back to the retailer after the order is fulfilled.

In summary, EDI replaces the paper exchange and maximizes the efficiency of electronic consistency. How you utilize the efficiency is up to you by integrating these documents into your daily processes. To learn more about EDI and EDI integration visit our Frequently Asked Questions.

Understanding eBridge Translations

September 9th, 2014

Do you require Country, State, or Province codes to be translated when being sent from your accounting package or ERP to your eCommerce storefront? Are unwanted characters (@&!*;) appearing in your ERP? Do you need to match the item codes on your eCommerce storefront with the item codes in your ERP?

If the answer to any of the above questions is yes, then you have come to the right place. All of these issues can be resolved through your data integration with the proper set-up and management of eBridge translations.

What are eBridge Translations?

eBridge Translations perform simple substitutions in your data during the data integration process so you don’t have to.

We all know that mistakes during manual data entry can be costly and despite our best efforts, humans make mistakes. Fortunately for you, our integration technology has been developed to ensure that the data in your ERP is translated to exactly match the data in your eCommerce storefront. For example, an eBridge automated inventory report update will effortlessly update the inventory on your eCommerce storefront without you having to worry that your products will be updated with the wrong quantities.

With eBridge Translations, during your data integration you can manage all translations using one accessible interface. Quickly manage your data with a single translation table and make changes to your eCommerce item codes, shipping addresses, item descriptions, or even order statuses.

How Translations Work – The Specifics

(1) Translations must specify the exact data to be translated.

For example, if you want to change your Shipping Carrier from ‘FedEx’ in your accounting package to ‘094’ as a Shipping Carrier code on your eCommerce storefront, you must specify ‘FedEX’ in your translation table; it will not work if you specify ‘FEDEX’ or ‘fedex’.

(2) Translations will be applied to all documents for the specified trading partner or eCommerce storefront.

When you apply a translation for incoming orders, it will be applied to all incoming orders from the specified EDI trading partner or storefront. If you want to translate data on some of the incoming documents but not all of them this can be done with an eBridge Business Rule.

(3) Translations will be applied to all instances where the value appears in the document.

If you search for the string ‘1’, the translation will be applied wherever ‘1’ is found in the data whether it is found in the Customer Number, the Item IDs, or the Tax Information. There are techniques for specifying where translations will be applied. However, for complex scenarios we recommend using a Business Rule.

eBridge translations can be used to make a simple substitution to values in your data. It performs a ‘Find and Replace’– it finds the value you are looking for and will replace it with the value you need. Stop spending your time manually entering and translating data between systems, experience the ease of an eBridge integration!

Say Hi to Paul our Customer Care Advocate!

September 5th, 2014

It is true what they say: time flies when you’re having fun!

In many cases, of course, that depends on the definition of ‘fun’ being used. In this context, taking advantage of the informality permitted in blogging, fun can, without too much dilution of the original intent, be taken as meaning ‘challenging’. But even challenging can be paired with some compelling synonyms: ’stimulating’, for example – even ‘thought-provoking’. Our friends at Microsoft even go so far as suggesting ‘inspiring’. While this usage might stretch the imagination just a tiny bit, I can’t help but feel a touch of inspiration as I draft this first blog post.

The Journey So Far

This is my first opportunity to really capture what my experience has been so far in my role of Customer Care Advocate at eBridge, and the truth is, in days gone by, I have considered myself to be somewhat of a communication specialist – if you will. In university, writing was without a doubt my strong suit; and I excelled in getting a point across in a such a way that the grader – typically a student herself without much of a choice but to read the piece in question – would feel just enough to get her to the next line without being too biased by my naiveté or her own priorities. In this way, I had some success.

In just under a year in my second position at eBridge, I have similarly shared some successes with my team, and I have also learned a ton! Even with this very blog post I have learned something: the conditions are not always going to be perfect for whatever comes across your desk. The truth is, I have been meaning to write this post for some time now. But in my mind, I wasn’t quite ready. I didn’t know exactly what to write about, I didn’t know exactly what kind of voicing I would use and I certainly didn’t know exactly how it would be perceived!

The lesson learned is that you need to persist any way.  The reality is, now that I’ve begun, I’m on a little bit of a roll.

Perseverance

By coincidence (replace with fate, serendipity where appropriate), the office I moved into when I took on this role has a picture hanging on the wall. The picture is of a lone man rowing a boat at dusk.  It is framed by the words ‘Perseverance: What we hope ever to do with ease, we must first learn to do with diligence’.

Perserverence

I have learned that this advice is axiomatic to my approach in this role; and I have taken up the mantle. Through diligence, I aim to learn as much as I can and share with you as often as I can in an attempt to convey more about what we do at eBridge. This will be tantamount to an ‘inside track’ or ’scoop’ for our current and future customers.

I am in a unique position here at eBridge and I know that I can share some valuable insight as I grow further into the role and learn more about our customers and our business. I am hoping that some of my insights, gleaned from diligence, will contribute to your ease in understanding some of the complexities (sometimes) associated with data integration. It is a challenging but truly rewarding space and I look forward to reporting in on a regular basis with more lessons learned.

I will also share a little bit about myself and how I approach things and I welcome your feedback in the future!

Yours sincerely,

Paul Tittel

Top 5 Reasons Why Businesses Select eBridge Connections as their eCommerce – ERP Integration Solution Provider

August 20th, 2014

Businesses worldwide are investing heavily in developing and maintaining eCommerce properties and managing their finances using back-office (accounting / ERP) software systems. Surely before selecting which eCommerce platform and ERP are ideal for their business they are doing their homework and evaluating the different options available.

Selecting an integration solution shouldn’t be any different. A well-chosen solution will enable seamless data integration between systems and be the difference between a surviving eCommerce business and a thriving eCommerce business. And in many cases, success brings pain. This is when it becomes very important to have an integration solution that can evolve with your growing business.

You’re probably wondering what set of features or capabilities make up a great integration solution. It’s difficult to come up with a definitive list, as it largely depends on specific customer’s requirements. Instead, we’ve put together our own list, which has been cultivated from eBridge customer feedback. We think it will give you a good idea of what’s important to look for in an integration solution provider.

1. Universal Integration

Universal eCommerce - ERP IntegrationBusinesses working with eBridge Connections have access to the largest number of pre-built connectors and data flows (what we call touchpoints) in the integration industry. Our universal integration platform supports 40 accounting packages including products from Microsoft Dynamics, Sage, SAP, NetSuite, and Epicor and connects with many of the leading eCommerce platforms and marketplaces such as Magento, Bigcommerce, Volusion, Shopify, Mozu, Amazon, and eBay. Furthermore, we’re continually building new connections in order to better service the growing community of eCommerce merchants.

2. Lowest TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)

When looking at an integration solution it’s easy for a business to be nearsighted – the issues facing the business today are probably what they are focused on solving the most. While eBridge Connections understands the importance of delivering solutions that will solve existing issues, we have made sure not to overlook what could present challenges down the road.

Traditionally, we built integration solutions with individual maps for each data touchpoint. Unfortunately, this technology was getting very expensive for businesses when they wanted (or needed) to upgrade their ERP or set up new eCommerce properties – as the existing maps were not reusable. Each business platform change required more maps to be built.

On average, businesses are replacing their ERP systems every 7 to 10 years. Realizing that businesses are upgrading or migrating to new business platforms frequently, we developed our integration platform to accommodate those changes while minimizing the financial impact to the customer. Featuring reusable integration components and shared business rules on a cloud-based SaaS platform we’ve been able to bring down the total cost of ownership for our customers because new connections are much easier to set up and maintain.

3. Flexibility & Scalability

The eBridge Connections Integration Platform supports both multi-platform and multi-store integrations, with connections to the same accounting package or ERP. For example, an eCommerce business could have 2 Magento stores, an Amazon store, and an eBay store – all integrated with their Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP. We also offer multiple paths to integration. While customers choose to leverage our pre-built connectors, they can also write to our structured API, or use CSV file drops or SQL to integrate their data. For growing eCommerce businesses that might want to switch platforms or expand into other online channels it helps to be working with an integrator that can implement each of those connections.

As mentioned above, the ERP upgrade process is much simpler (and less expensive) for existing eBridge customers because we don’t have to build them a whole new set of maps. This allows our customers to take advantage of robust ERP functionality at a fraction of the time and cost.

Lastly, our platform can also help businesses scale in other areas, by supporting integration with thousands of EDI trading partners such as Walmart, Target, and Costco, and the leading CRM applications, Salesforce.com and Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

4. Product Development, Maintenance, and Support in 1 Location

Software developers are notoriously known for outsourcing much of their work – often to the detriment of their customers. At eBridge Connections we build, maintain, and support our own integration solutions – all from within our Burlington, Ontario-based office. We do not rely on any 3rd party software or developers, and all customers have 24/7 access to our in-house technical support team.

5. 20 Years of Integration Expertise

eBridge Connections has been in the integration business since 1993 – over 20 years! In that time we have developed thousands of accounting integrations for our customers, starting with EDI integration and then evolving to the universal integration capabilities (eCommerce, CRM, and EDI) that we offer today.

With our personalized approach to project delivery, we take the time to understand our client’s needs and then deliver the most efficient and cost-effective solution for their business. In each project we leverage our experienced and knowledgeable team of Integration Specialists, Implementation Consultants and Technical Support Agents to provide full-service integration services – not just off-the-shelf software. We understand that accounting integration is not one size fits all, which is why we’ve built a team of experts to handle the complexities inherent in each specific business scenario.

Trust the eCommerce – ERP Integration Experts

There are many factors for an eCommerce business to consider when selecting an accounting / ERP integration solution provider. Most importantly, you’ll need to know if the integration provider can connect with your existing business platforms. However, it’s also key to consider how your business might change over time. Will establishing additional connections and data touchpoints be important? Will you need to upgrade your ERP? Ideally, you’ll want to have a flexible and scalable solution, that is implemented and supported by experts, and allows you to grow your business without growing your costs.

5 Challenges a Growing eCommerce Business Will Face Without Accounting Integration

July 17th, 2014

eCommerce Growing PainsTo be competitive in today’s eCommerce market it is essential for businesses to be quick, responsive and accurate when a customer makes a transaction. This can be very difficult when your eCommerce store or marketplace is not integrated with your accounting system or ERP.

Think about the steps involved in processing an online order manually and add up the time that goes into each step. It’s likely a bit surprising. Then add up the labor costs to complete each step. Compare it to the time and money spent on handling an order in an integrated environment and you’ll quickly realize that integration is the logical option by a country mile.

Granted, integrations can be complex and time-consuming to have implemented, so hiring a data entry clerk might be an easier and more immediate solution. This approach, however, is usually heavily flawed over the long-term and could leave you drowning in orders and expenses as your online store takes off. To further explain, let me present some of the challenges that an eCommerce merchant will face over time without accounting integration:

1. Scaling Your eCommerce Business

Increasing online order volume is likely one of your primary goals. However, as you drive more traffic to your store and orders are being placed in greater quantities there are generally longer delays in getting them keyed into your accounting system – resulting in longer wait times for your customers. In addition, as you continue to grow your online business you may wish to expand the number of products/SKUs available for sale. Without integration this means entering new product information and inventory into 2 different systems and then trying to keep them synchronized. Say hello to the first of many growing pains!

2. Allocating Resources

When first opening an eCommerce store much of the work involved in processing orders can be handled by one person. Often that person is the business owner. However, as your online business grows all of this work will usually need to be assigned to another resource – or you risk spending too much time on tasks that aren’t enabling you to do what you do best (develop, source, and sell products). When you get to this point you may need to give more work to someone who was not hired to do data entry and is already very busy. Do you want your marketing manager or sales rep spending their time keying in orders? Your other option is to hire a data entry clerk which will come with added costs. We’ll discuss that challenge next.

3. Controlling Costs

Another goal of any eCommerce business is to be effective in controlling costs. Having to manually enter orders, inventory, product and shipping information into multiple systems can eat up many paid employee hours. Unfortunately, this approach is not scalable. The added costs associated with processing more orders and adding/updating more products can easily bite into any additional revenue you’re generating via your store. Furthermore, you have to account for the inevitable mistakes that will happen when keying in data. You could end up having to pay for shipping multiple times, replacing damaged items that you can’t resell, and for all the time correcting the mistake. Sound expensive?

4. Synchronizing Inventory & Pricing

Wouldn’t it be so much easier to keep track of inventory and pricing if it was managed in one system? Handling inventory and pricing updates in separate systems usually results in data inaccuracies, operational inefficiencies, and customer confusion. It could even lead to selling items that you don’t even have in stock. That’s a problem you don’t want to have to explain to your customers.

5. Delivering a High-Quality Customer Experience

In the hyper-competitive eCommerce landscape of today it’s hard for a business to prosper without happy customers. With user experiences improving across the industry, shoppers are now expecting better experiences when they make purchases online. Meeting these growing needs can be very challenging for an emerging eCommerce business. A perfect example of how a non-integrated online business can struggle with delivering a high-quality customer experience is with shipment tracking. The customer expectation is that their order will be updated in their online account with a shipment tracking number within a short timeframe (usually within 24 hours). Unfortunately, items purchased from merchants without automated order processing often are held up by data entry delays caused by high order volumes, absences, competing tasks, etc. Not only do these delays frustrate customers, but they can have other negative impacts, such as a hit to a business’ seller rating in a marketplace like Amazon.

Say Goodbye to Growing Pains

Ultimately, your eCommerce business will have a much greater opportunity for success if it is not faced with these challenges. Automating your business processes via integration software will enable your to reduce your operating costs and improve productivity, efficiency, and accuracy. All of which will lead to growing online sales, maximizing profits, and cultivating many satisfied customers.

Contact the team at eBridge Connections if you want to avoid these growing pains and get the most out of your eCommerce business.

eCommerce Insights: 5 Interesting Examples of Multivariate & A/B Testing

May 23rd, 2014

A/B testing is a common and effective strategy for improving the conversion rate of your eCommerce site. There are affordable tools out there (like Google Analytics and Optimizely) that make it easy for even the smallest eCommerce business to take advantage of their data and begin running tests.

Here are a few interesting examples of A/B or multivariate testing on well-known websites:

Obama for America


(photo: barackobama.com)
Many articles have been written about the U.S. President’s online campaign in 2008. Few of these articles have drawn attention to the data-driven A/B tests led by Dan Siroker. One of the campaign’s primary conversion goals was a sign up form for the OFA mailing list. Siroker tested three different calls-to-action: “Learn More”, “Join Us Now” and “Sign Up Now”. He also tested two photos of Obama: one in black-and-white and one in turquoise. According to Wired, the OFA web team was surprised to learn that the black-and-white photo combined with “Learn More” was 40% more effective than the turquoise photo and a CTA of “Sign Up”.

Netflix

(photo adapted from original by shardayyy on flickr and licensed under Creative Commons)
In a Quora post, Neil Hunt, chief product officer of Netflix said that Netflix A/B tests “almost everything”.
“I have this mental model of particles of attention that a user brings, a finite quantity that they will spread around according to what catches their attention. I call them ‘attentrons.’”
According to Hunt, one of Netflix’s most important metrics is a user’s hours of streaming. Some of Netflix’s most visible A/B tests included the layout of their PS3 application, their iOS app and their video recommendations algorithm.

fab.com

In cooperation with Optimizely, fab.com conducted an A/B test of different add-to-cart buttons in their catalog pages. Fab’s original add-to-cart button consisted of a cart symbol with a plus sign next to it. A/B testing showed that customers were 49% more likely to use a button that explicitly said “Add To Cart”. You can read the entire case study on Optimizely’s website.

YouTube

In 2009, the YouTube team published a blog post on their homepage multivariate test. According to their blog, this was one of the biggest multivariate tests ever conducted, comparing account sign up rates across 1024 variables. In particular, the test evaluated different highlighting colours, different fonts and different CTA wordings. YouTube’s test showed that a white CTA on a bright red background outperformed CTAs on a plain yellow or white background.

Facebook

(Code snippet from the PlanOut project on Github and licensed under the BSD license)
Will Cathart, director of product management at Facebook says that there could be about 1,000 versions of Facebook running at any given moment. Many of these tests are on the algorithms that define the order of the News Feed and the content that Facebook surfaces to its users.
Facebook’s developers have produced two multivariate testing frameworks: one for their mobile apps, called Airlock and one for web applications called PlanOut. Remarkably, Facebook has open sourced both testing frameworks and published a white paper detailing their testing methodology.

Have you run an A/B test on your eCommerce site? How did it go? Let us know in the comments!

B2C to B2B Crunch Time – A Strong Case for Accounting Integration

April 14th, 2014

Sales Order ClutterTell us if this sounds like your business… so you started selling on eBay, then you added an Amazon store, but by then you had a ton of orders and along with that came the headaches and eventually a full-on migraine. It was then that you decided to take all that pain away with an eCommerce store, and everything leveled out. Then, another large batch of orders rolled in and along came some buyers from companies that wanted to re-sell your items in their stores. Each of those buyers placed huge orders, which you had to discount in your accounting system, which led to even more work. This is what we call “B2C to B2B Crunch Time” and we’re going to explain to you how to avoid it.

You first need to choose an eCommerce cart which will allow you to create a login for B2B customers, which will offer them their own pricing tiers and products. You will also be able (depending on your cart selection) to create skins for your B2B customers which can provide branding allowing you to cater to your each B2B customer individually. This simple change also allows you to maintain your B2C presence without the two worlds colliding.

So now that you have solved that problem it’s on to the same old problem… all those orders.

How can you possibly key in your B2B and B2C orders and do inventory all at the same time?

When B2C to B2B Crunch Time occurs you really need to consider an integration solution, which will allow you to pull down all those orders into your accounting system and take away the tedious manual entry of those orders. The integration solutions offered by eBridge Connections will not only pull in those orders in automatically into your accounting system, it will also send updated tracking information, inventory and products all back up to your store. In addition, new customer entries can be added automatically if they don’t currently exist in your accounting system.

Does this sound like something you might need? Of course it is.

Let eBridge Connections help you get past the B2B to B2B Crunch. We could explain more but it’s better to know your specific requirements and needs. First, build your own integration blueprint, and we’ll respond with a follow-up phone call or email to review your situation in more detail.

Introducing Mozu

February 28th, 2014

In September, Volusion, Inc. announced that they were launching a new enterprise-grade eCommerce platform called Mozu. eBridge has been a Volusion partner since 2010 and today we are proud to announce that we have joined the Mozu developers’ program. In the weeks ahead, eBridge will be preparing to build a new connector that will enable Mozu businesses to integrate data between their eCommerce site and their ERP.

We are particularly excited about working with Mozu because we know that it has been designed with back-end integrations in mind. Mozu was created using an API-first approach, which means that eBridge can use the same integration points used by the Mozu web interface. Robust APIs allow us to build strong integrations with the advanced touchpoints that enterprise webstores need. Volusion’s commitment to supporting ‘omnichannel commerce’ is really promising and it speaks to a growing requirement for close coordination between offline retail systems and web-based eCommerce solutions.
You can learn more about Mozu at www.mozu.com or read Volusion’s press release here.

Magento 2 Sneak Preview

February 14th, 2014

In December, the Magento product management team hosted a webinar to communicate the progress they have made on Magento 2.0. The webcast lasted more than 2 hours and provided great insight into some of the Magento team’s rationale behind changes in the new product. In this blog post, I’ll summarize a few of the key features that we expect to see in Magento 2.

PHP Upgrade

Magento 1.x is dependent on the server running a version of PHP between 5.2.13 and 5.4. Support for PHP 5.4 was rolled out through a patch in January.

By contrast, Magento 2.0 requires PHP 5.4 at a minimum and it will allow users to upgrade their site to PHP 5.5. PHP has come a long way in the past few years and there are significant performance benefits from running a modern version. On her blog, lornajane has published benchmarks that show the speed improvements between PHP 5.4 and earlier versions of the language.

jQuery by default

In Magento 2, the default JavaScript library has been changed from Prototype to jQuery. This will be a popular decision with many front-end developers. jQuery is a much more common library and using both Prototype and jQuery together could cause conflicts.

Easier Customization and Integrations

The Magento team emphasized that many of the changes in Magento 2.0 are focussed around making it easier for developers to extend and customize Magento.

Mage class replaced with Namespaces and Dependency Injection

The ubiquitous Mage class has been replaced by a new method for declaring class dependencies. You can read more about this on the Magento 2 wiki.

Increased Modularity

In their webcast, the Magento developers said that part of their short-term plan involves decoupling modules and reducing the dependencies between different components of Magento. A goal of this effort is to make it possible for developers to entirely replace a sub-system of Magento with third party functionality.

It will be interesting to see how this can be applied to ERP integrations. There are many overlapping and redundant features between eCommerce systems and ERPs. If the modules can be separated easily then accounting systems might be able to fully replace parts of Magento’s functionality, like inventory management.

Adoption of PSR Coding Standards

The Magento team has committed to following the PSR (PHP Specification Request) coding standards. This is another developer-friendly move that makes perfect sense for Magento to implement now. Magento 2 is already PSR-0 and PSR-1 compliant and PSR-2 compliance is in the works.

Community input welcome

The community is invited to give input on Magento 2 through the Magento 2 Github repo. No release date has been set yet for a production-ready version of Magento 2, however you can download the work-in-progress from Github.
