Watch our video to learn how to convert a file to an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) format by using our ABBYY Vantage Converter Skill.
Hello. Today I’d like to share with you our EDI Connector. Now this EDI Connector is very flexible. We have a lot of control over the type of EDI files that we output the format or standard that we use. But for today’s demo, we’re gonna simply use an invoice that you can see will flow through this process skill. It will be dropped into an FTP site. We will extract the details and then we will generate that EDI file and then produce an output. Now of course, that output and where we put that EDI file, we have a lot of flexibility with. We can drop it on an FTP site. We can post that EDI file to a web service. We can drop it in another third party system. So a lot of control over that. But what I’ve done is I went ahead and dropped a sample invoice into our solution.
And here’s that sample invoice. You can see here it’s just a very standard invoice. We have header information. We got line items. And what we’ve done is we’ve dropped that into ABBYY Vantage. Now, from there, we were able to extract and pull an EDI file here.
So when I open this and I show you that EDI file, you’ll see here that now I have an EDI, in this case 810 format that we are using to make sure that we generate this format in a consumable fashion that is meant for the next downstream steps. So we process that invoice sample. We have now generated this EDI file with the content that we need to continue the downstream processing.
So that’s really as simple as what this EDI connector does. I hope you enjoyed the preview. If you have any questions, please reach out to us.
