SAP EDI Integration & Transactions
Benefit from automated communication between your EDI and SAP ERP system.
SAP ERP Integration
EDI and ERP are vital to integrate business data and processes into a single slick setup. Here at Data Interchange we offer integration with the following SAP products: SAP R/3 and S/4 HANA via IDoc Integration
By integrating your ERP with EDI, you will enable a smooth process of business data transmission. Plus, Data Interchange will setup and test all your EDI connections to your trading partners offering easy EDI connectivity.
Your SAP ERP will be able to receive business data automatically from any EDI transmission, speeding up processes and increasing accuracy. Therefore improving the efficiency of your business.
Our Value Added Network, DiNet, knows when a document import is successful and can update exported documents in SAP to show they have been successfully received by the trading partner.
Data Interchange’s approach to EDI ERP integration
With over 35 years of experience developing data communication solutions that automate the exchange of business documents, at Data Interchange we understand a one-size-fits-all approach to integration doesn’t work. That’s why we produce a tailored plan based on the unique business processes and trading partner requirements of our customers, creating systems and procedures that can be easily updated and maintained.

Considerations for a SAP EDI Integration
When it comes to your EDI solution, one of the most critical projects is integrating your back-office ERP and EDI systems. When integrating SAP and your EDI system, there are 4 focus areas you should fully explore during the process.
Before embarking on an integration project, it’s important to review your existing setup. Is it fit for purpose, working well today and future-proof?
Do you have resources available for EDI (both connectivity and message standards) plus SAP IDoc interfaces including integration.
It’s difficult to get EDI & SAP expertise, so consider if you have the required in house expertise or if you need to outsource. Be clear on who will be owning what and how much support will be required.
Is their a change of ERP in the Strategy? Or maybe an upgrade is looming… make sure these are all considered in the project. Is your EDI provider capable of managing any future ERP requirements you may have?
