Software developer Online Computing has enhanced the electronic data interchange module for its MasterTools software that is designed for manufacturers.

The four upgrades make it easier for companies to use EDI, specifically in relation to mapping freight terms and the ability to determine a bill to identify by vendor. The changes were automatically installed.

Marine industry distributors and retailers are requiring tier one and two suppliers to use EDI. Cabela’s, Walmart, West Marine and Fisheries Supply are some of the companies that use the interchange.

Stand-alone EDI software leaves a company with the additional task of updating all of its internal systems, which can take time and lead to errors, according to Online Computing. MasterTools connects trading partners and integrates with other aspects of a business such as accounting and shipping. It uses an ANSI-standard protocol for EDI transactions and has more than 1,000 variables that Online Computing can use to configure the module to an individual manufacturer’s needs.
