Implementation Steps

Most EDI syncs are one-way. Data is published by the vendor.

  1. Determine which document types the vendor supports and that the customer wants.  This typically includes:
    • Invoices
    • Product Guides
  2. Set up an FTP account. Each account should be specific to a vendor/client. If the vendor can provide an FTP account, that is preferred. Otherwise Yellow Dog Software can provide an account. The following information is needed by YDI:
    • FTP address.
    • Username
    • Password
    • Folder(s) where data is stored.
  3. The vendor should begin publishing data as soon as possible. This allows YDI to pull in item/invoice data before the "go live" date.
  4. Configure and schedule the sync on the YDI server.
