EDI capability is a significant criterion for the selection of suppliers and business partners. As a stable and reliable cloud communication solution, webDAX is ideally suited to connect with small businesses.
Our webDAX is the perfect cloud communication solution for quick and easy supplier connection.
Deployment scenarios of webDAX
There are two scenarios in which the webEDI solution webDAX can be applied– one for customers and one for suppliers:
Customers want to connect with their suppliers
webDAX can be used as a portal solution by customers to connect with their small and medium-sized suppliers who do not have an EDI solution themselves. The portal solution can also be used in their own corporate identity (CI).
Suppliers want to connect with their customers
The supplier receives individual access to webDAX in order to meet the EDI requirements of just one or many customer/s without needing anything apart from a web browser.
Several advantages arise for both customers and suppliers.

webDAX is a portal solution in the cloud. Either a supplier connects to the ERP system of its client via the webEDI Portal or the client connects its suppliers to his ERP via the webEDI Portal. This way, even small suppliers who do not have an EDI solution themselves can become EDI-capable. All they need is a PC with a web browser.

Its universal structure and the use of generally valid EDIFACT formats as well as protocols such as OFTP2 for data transmission allow it to be used for companies that are partially or fully involved in different industries. The cloud solution provides industry-compliant barcode labels that the supplier can simply download and print out himself.
