EDI Solutions from HÜNGSBERG:
reliable, flexible and effective!
EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) stands for the processing and exchange of electronic business data between partners. EDI automation is therefore an important component in the implementation of Industry 4.0 measures.
Nowadays, companies of all sizes realise savings and enhance their scaling and growth potential via various automation solutions. The automation of data and exchange of documents, e.g. during goods procurement or order entry, plays a central role here. This feature is especially crucial for the cooperation between clients, suppliers and third parties.
With our HÜNGSBERG EDI solutions, we have been enabling companies of all sizes and industries to exchange data electronically between partners for more than 40 years – e.g. through message standards such as EDIFACT.

Choosing the right EDI solutions that fits your business model
In general, EDI software can be used in a multitude of ways: Either as an on premise solution (i.e. operated in-house), as a cloud solution or as a so-called webEDI solution via the Internet with a provider.
Each of these options comes with its own advantages and disadvantages:

Implementing an EDI solution in your company
Essentially, the implementation of an EDI solution consists of three steps:
- EDI concept phase
- EDI test phase
- Switching to live and commissioning the EDI system
The different steps are explained in more detail below:
EDI concept phase
The initial step, known as the EDI concept phase, involves a thorough understanding of the customer’s specific requirements. These requirements are then translated into the functionalities of the different modules within the EDI software. This phase ensures that the customer gains a comprehensive understanding of the resulting EDI solution, including its technical capabilities and potential use cases. Customer-specific EDI settings are installed and configured in a realistic testing environment and the EDI solution is thoroughly evaluated and validated for its intended use.
The steps of the EDI concept phase, which take place before going live include:
- installation of the EDI software on the test server
- connection of the partners via the necessary protocol
- generation of the mappings for various formats and partners
- basic setting, testing and adjustment of the EDI solution
- definition and documentation of the installation
- creation of test scenarios with reference data
EDI test phase
In the EDI test phase, the test plans, reference data, or software settings that have been defined during the EDI concept phase are intensively tested and verified with the connected trading partners.
This step represents an iterative process in which – if necessary – corrections can be made. These, in turn, result in adaptations of existing mappings and documentation, etc. At the end of the EDI test phase, the system is successfully accepted.
Switching to live and commissioning of the EDI system
At the end of the successfully completed EDI test phase, the EDI system changes from being a test environment to becoming a productive system. HÜNGSBERG supports its customers very closely during this phase. By ensuring that all the important EDI decision-makers (key users, end users, administrators) receive adequate training beforehand, HÜNGSBERG makes certain that both the transition to live operation and the post-go live period run seamlessly.
Upcoming questions or application problems are directly addressed and quickly solved by our reactive support team.
