Customizing EDI/HQ™ Trading Partner Defaults

Trading Partner Customization with EDI/HQ

Have you ever worked with a software package and wondered why, every time you create a new record, you have to make the same changes over and over again? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could configure basic settings so that the new Trading Partner records would use that information?

Well, we’re here to tell you that EDI/HQ™ can be set up so that all your needed Trading Partner Default settings will automatically populated into the new records. No longer will you have to remember and hand-key this information.

By setting up the Trading Partner Defaults, you can customize how all of your Trading Partners are defined for your entire company. If you have a standard filename you want every map to use when outputting the EDI data, you can set that up. If you want all of your transactions to use the same Error Handling settings, that is available as well.

Some of the default options available include the Inbound and Outbound Headers for both ANSI ASC X12 and UNECE EDIFACT standards as well as the preferred versions, delimiter defaults and SDQ (Multi-Store Purchase Order) Parsing functionality.

If this sounds like something you’d like to implement, please contact 1 EDI Source and speak to one of our highly qualified Consultants.
