    Basic Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Overview


    EDI can help process orders, claims, and invoices with certified vendors (see EDI Certification Process for Vendor Partners for the list of certified vendors).

    For each vendor, configure an EDI profile in the Acquisitions client.

    Once the details are confirmed with your vendor, you can immediately begin using EDI.

    You use FTP to transfer EDI data files to and from the vendor.

    • For incoming EDI, once the file is in place on the server, open Acquisitions, then receive and load the file. Log files report any exceptions.
    • For outbound EDI, choose to send POs or claim via EDI and process your outbound messages through Acquisitions. The output file is immediately available for transfer to the vendor.

    Additional Information

    See the "Electronic Data Interchange" chapter in the Acquisitions User's Guide, which explains EDI setup and processing in Voyager.
