OrderEase integration process with Lowes
Based on your relationship and requirements, the following EDI business document types may be required to send and receive between your business and Lowes.
850 Purchase Order
OrderEase receives the purchase order from the Lowes or their EDI service provider such as CommerceHub - then translates from EDI format into an order that pushes into your integrated ERP or accounting system, as well as to your integrated logistics system.
855 Purchase Order Acknowledgement
Through configured workflows, a trigger can be set to send an 855 back to Lowes indicating whether the order is fully accepted or rejected.
856 Advance Shipping Notice
Whether generated from your integrated ERP or logistics provider, the shipping data is translated within OrderEase into the ASN EDI document. This allows you to tell Lowes when to expect delivery.
Workflows can be configured to send an invoice to Lowes once an order status has been changed to shipped. The invoice data will be pulled from your integrated ERP, translated into the 810 EDI format and transmitted to Lowes.
997 Functional Acknowledgement
At many stages throughout the EDI transmission process, functional acknowledgements are required by Lowes. This communication informs them you have received their message. These acknowledgements are configured to trigger during the set up and certification stage of your integration with Lowes.
846 Inventory Feed
You have the option to send an inventory feed for products you trade with Lowes. The inventory will pull directly from your integrated ERP system or if your ERP doesn't support inventory, you can manage inventory inside your OrderEase web portal.
If needed, OrderEase will pull the Lowes branded packing slip and attach it to your order for easy retrieval and printing.
OrderEase EDI connections support all documents standards such as ANSI X12, EDIFACT, XML, and connection types such as VAN, AS2, FTP (flat file), and API.
