Ace Hardware EDI Compliance
Manual order management is time consuming and expensive, it’s time for a change.
If you’re looking to reduce costs and become more efficient in your order processing with Ace Hardware, OrderEase’s two-way integrated connection will make the difference.
We can help you work directly with Ace Hardware to deliver a cost-effective and efficient service to simplify how you sell, and focus on growing your business.
OrderEase integration process with Ace Hardware
OrderEase connects to Ace Hardware’s EDI system directly for orders. This connection via our software provides the ability to automate order workflows with your ERP or accounting software, logistics software, and even inventory software when each business system is integrated with OrderEase.
Not only are we fully EDI compliant with Ace Hardware and their associated brands, we make each process easier, and add value on every document we touch. With a fully integrated solution, manual order management is reduced or eliminated saving time, errors, redundant work, and money.
Specifications tested and certified with Ace Hardware include the following. Where possible, automations and workflows can be enabled via OrderEase to communicate between integrated systems for each trading requirement such as:
850 Purchase Order
OrderEase receives the purchase order from Ace Hardware, then translates it directly to your integrated ERP or accounting system, as well as your integrated logistics and/or inventory system
855 A/R Purchase Order Acknowledgement
By configuring your workflows, OrderEase can send an 855 back to Ace Hardware indicating whether you’ve fully accepted an order or rejected it.
856 Advance Shipping Notice
Whether generated from your integrated ERP or logistics provider, all shipping data is automatically transferred into your ASN document, seamlessly letting Ace Hardware know when to expect delivery.
With workflows enabled, you are able to have the option to automate sending invoices to Ace Hardware once an order status has been changed to shipped. The invoice data will be pulled directly from your ERP, translated into the 810 EDI format and automatically transferred to Ace Hardware.
997 Functional Acknowledgement
During the EDI transmission process, functional acknowledgements are required by Ace Hardware. This communication, automatically generated from OrderEase, lets them know we’ve received their transmissions.
OrderEase supports all document standards such as ANSI X12, EDIFACT, XML, and connection types such as VAN, AS2, FTP (flat file), and API.
How OrderEase EDI integration makes Ace Hardware orders easier to manage and fulfill
We replace your siloed dashboards with a central standalone or integrated hub to manage transactions across your sales channels, creating full EDI compliance.
Make sure that contract standards are being met by setting triggers within OrderEase to automatically send updates and move your business along based on status changes in your processes, such as “shipped” or “invoiced”.
