Smithfield Foods EDI update affecting grocery vendors – deadline July 30th.
The third and final phase of the Smithfield Foods OneSAP consolidation go-live is approaching! Read more to learn about this important update from Smithfield Foods.
In October 2017, Smithfield began placing orders and receiving invoices using consolidated Smithfield accounts in OneSAP. No EDI changes are necessary to this OneSAP EDI configuration if it is currently in use by the vendor. If you are not currently exchanging orders with OneSAP and have tested with Smithfield, you will need to have the map and the communication channel available in your production system by July 30th, 2018.
The cutover timelines are as follows:
- July 20th at 8AM Central: Stop EDI for Legacy Smithfield/Farmland Orders.
Legacy ISA IDs will no longer be used to place orders, but will be available to receive EDI invoices until July 27th.
- Between July 20th and July 30th, the purchasing team will place orders for Smithfield and Farmland facilities manually. Orders for other facilities that are already on OneSAP using the correct EDI ID will continue to be placed through EDI.
- July 27th at 8AM: Stop EDI for Legacy Smithfield/Farmland Invoices.
Legacy Smithfield/Farmland ISA IDs will be discontinued and should not be used further.
- July 30th at 8AM: Enable Smithfield/Farmland EDI Orders and Invoices through OneSAP.
Orders for all Smithfield Facilities will be placed through the OneSAP, with the consolidated ID.
The Smithfield Foods purchasing team is working directly with EDI applications teams to communicate changes to Smithfield’s ship-to, bill-to, and vendor numbers in separate communication. They will also provide new purchase order numbers for any remaining legacy Smithfield/Farmland purchase orders that have not been invoiced by July 27th.
