Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) for Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Dynamics AX

With the Microsoft Dynamics 365 / AX Connector for EDI


Inway's EDI Connector exchange data directly between Dynamics AX / 365 and your business partner's computer systems

The Challenge

Many paper-based business transactions across several agents/media take up to several days. Therefore, electronic data interchange is already established in many industries. Winning a large customer often means participating in predefined exchange procedures.

Thus, electronic data interchange provides highly efficient communication for companies with many business partners.

The solution

EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) replaces paper documents such as quotations, invoices, shipping notifications, etc., with electronic documents. These are transmitted worldwide in a standard format between business partners so sender and recipient can read the document. The advantage of EDI is that it is an exchange directly between ERP-Systems.
Business transactions can be accelerated.

The deployment of the Inway EDI Connector finally allows us to fulfil the electronic data exchange requirements of different customers, including large retail chains. The integration of our business processes with those of our customers and the automation of the OrderToCash process represents a significant improvement in our order process. Fewer errors due to manual entries occur and the process runtime was significantly reduced.
