Mastmax’s Electronic Data Interchange a game changerMarch 21, 2021
Speed is a powerful force in the supply chain industry. And business owners who fail to team up with order fulfillment providers that can handle the frantic demands of customers quickly, efficiently and accurately, will inevitably get vanquished.
To give business clients seeking an edge to get their products to market at warp speed, partner with Mastmax which employs tools such as Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).
EDI is a cloud-based platform the fulfillment provider relies on to ensure business clients have uninterrupted contact with carriers, vendors, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders through the process. This direct ability to communicate saves money and time.
The platform provides clients a vantage point that captures the comprehensive scope of their business operations. For entrepreneurs who partner with Mastmax, this is a game changer that will set them up for success.
“Instead of scrambling, you’ll have a bird’s eye view of your operation right from the EDI,” Mastmax says on its website at Mastmax.com. “You will also be able to contact all your stakeholders right from the EDI.”
Business clients use EDI to not only stay in touch with suppliers, carriers, and vendors, but most use this platform as the only channel to communicate with internal and external partners.
How we differ
EDI, however, is not in use at all order fulfillment or third-party shipping companies. According to its website, Shipmonk does not offer EDI services, but provides revenue data, a breakdown of shipping destinations as well as a real-time view of inventory levels from a software fulfillment dashboard.
And at Fulfillify, its online platform allows customers a “real-time view” of inventory, products and orders from any device. Customers can run reports, check their dashboard. But again, the company does not offer an EDI platform to clients.
Rakuten Super Logistics, a third-party logistics provider, handles fulfillment services for e-commerce, including shipping and tracking. EDI services is not listed on its website as an option for business clients.
Rakuten Super Logistics has systems in place that allow business clients and their customers to see order status and tracking information in real-time.
Benefits of EDI
Mastmax’s EDI works as a central system that can link, monitor and contact processes and partners. As a partner, business clients can use the EDI program to send shipping notifications, place orders, fulfill orders, and generate invoices. And they can set up the automation of some of these steps, a great way to cut down on expenses.
With the EDI platform, business clients can end up with significant savings.
Since order fulfillment involves many interconnected parts, EDI is the ideal platform to help business clients monitor all these tasks.
The platform also allows business clients to streamline communication throughout the process and helps them operate more efficiently, again reducing their costs.
Mastmax’s EDI platform also comes packed with additional value to clients. The program is flexible and scalable. And it delivers easy integration with new retail partners, giving them a vehicle that can be used to grow their business.
Mastmax’s points out on its website that its EDI program is compatible with all major Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems.
