Solution Providers

Available solutions can be broken down into three basic categories:

Commercial, Off the Shelf solutions 

Off the shelf solutions can be web based, using you existing computer and printer and the internet to connect or fully integrated scan pack solutions. Depending on the level of integration and support you require, most solution providers will also have software packages available that are designed to integrate with existing infrastructure.

It is essential that you discuss with any solution provider what kind of system integration you require and what level of support you need.



Custom in-house solutions

Usually reserved for larger companies, custom in-house solutions require a high level of technical skills. Custom solutions can lead to better integration with your internal systems, but they usually require more time, money and are riskier to implement. Scanner programming may be needed and usually modifications to translation software are required.

Third Party Logistics (3PL) providers

This is an alternative to installing an EDI solution yourself. 3PL providers have operational scan pack equipment installed which already meets our EDI requirements. All you have to do is deliver the merchandise to their warehouse and they will sort it by store, scan it into cartons or bags, apply Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) labels and sends the Advance Ship Note (ASN) on your behalf.
