Ace Hardware EDI
Trying to become a supplier for Ace Hardware? That’s an exciting opportunity! However, in order to do business with Ace Hardware, it is almost certain your business will need to make a few operational adjustments to meet Ace’s EDI trading requirements.
If you are going to sell to Ace Hardware, they are likely to insist that you have a working relationship with a VAN in place first before sending purchase orders your way. The VAN eliminates unnecessary steps for both your business and your trading partner.
If you are unfamiliar with the term EDI, it stands for Electronic Data Interchange, which is the most frequently used method of communication used to complete B2B transactions.
In order to employ EDI, a VAN (Value-Added Network) like TrueCommerce, B2BGateway, or SPS Commerce must be implemented first. The VAN is a necessary component of EDI trading as it facilitates the translation of data by rendering the data into a legible format to be exchanged between systems.
While a VAN is inescapable, an EDI order management system is optional but highly recommended. An EDI order management system like Acctivate improves all areas of your business while enhancing and streamlining EDI trading processes.
