Some of our wonderful eBridge gals donned their loveliest of hats and watched the Royal Wedding during lunchtime today in order to celebrate with the rest of the world in the joining in matrimony of history in the making of the future King and Queen.
I’m sure the Queen herself would approve of such elegant attire!
On April 7th – eBridge won the BEDC High Five Award for Business Export. We graciously accept this award and congratulate the other High Five Award winners, TransUnion Canada and L-3 Wescam. The Awards Gala was held at the Burlington Convention Center and attended by approx. 500 people. Here’s a short video profiling eBridge:
Here at eBridge Connections, we have been putting a lot of emphasis on web store integrations recently but the reality is that EDI is still a major reason companies need to undertake an integration project.
In an effort to realize cost savings throughout the supply chain, more customers than ever are mandating EDI as business requirement. That means that if you want to do business with companies like Walmart, Target, JC Penney, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Home Depot, or any other number of retail or grocery chains, automotive companies or the healthcare industry, you need to be prepared to exchange your business documents electronically, and that usually means EDI.

The Purchase Order Acknowledgement or 855 is an EDI document sent by the vendor or Trading Partner to the customer to acknowledge the details of the Purchase Order or 850 that was received. If terms of the purchase order cannot be met then this document can also be used to provide the details of the changes to the order that the vendor needed to make (for example an item ordered is out of stock and cannot be shipped or the delivery date cannot be met).
The types of changes that need to be recorded on the 855 vary by EDI trading partner. The changes are denoted on each line item by a change code.
Common 855 Change Codes
DR Item Accepted – Date Rescheduled
IA Item Accepted
IB Item Backordered
ID Item Deleted (Use to indicate Item is being Discontinued)
