How Vantree EDI Works with Business Central

Installation and Dashboard Overview:

Upon installation, the Vantree EDI app becomes an integral part of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central’s interface. This seamless integration ensures a smooth user experience, eliminating the need for users to learn new software. As part of the integration, the dashboard receives three significant additions:

  • Direct Access to EDI Module: Users gain direct access to the EDI module through the “Vantree EDI” menu item, conveniently located on the dashboard. This direct access simplifies the process of managing EDI documents within Business Central.
  • Insightful Document Summaries: The dashboard incorporates “Insight Headlines,” providing users with valuable document insights and sales summaries. This feature aids in quick decision-making and understanding the overall document landscape.
  • Visual Representation of Document Statistics: The “Vantree Summary Pie Chart” offers a visual representation of import and processing statistics, including pending documents. Users can easily interpret the status of their documents, allowing for effective prioritization and management.

Inbound Section:

In the inbound section, users have granular control over their incoming documents, ensuring thorough validation and error resolution processes:

  • Pending Orders Management: Users can efficiently manage pending orders, evaluating each transaction’s readiness for import. The interface provides a clear overview, facilitating swift decision-making.
  • Validation Workflow: Users can identify pending validations that require editing and confirmation. This step ensures that the data integrity of incoming documents is maintained.
  • Error-Free Transaction Processing: Processed transactions that are error-free and ready for further processing are displayed, allowing users to move seamlessly to the next steps in their workflow, such as picking, packing, and shipment preparation.

Outbound Section:

In the outbound section, the integration simplifies the process of exporting various document types:

  • Document Export: Users can easily manage different types of outbound documents, such as purchase order acknowledgments (e.g., 855 documents) and invoices. The system provides a streamlined process for exporting these documents, ensuring efficient communication with trading partners.
  • Error Management: The system categorizes errors into critical and standard errors, offering clear guidance on resolution processes. Users can manage these errors directly within the Business Central interface, enhancing their control over outbound document accuracy.

Advanced Features and Configurations:

Vantree’s Embedded EDI Integration also offers advanced features and configurations for users seeking greater automation and customization:

  • Automation Settings: Users can configure automation settings, enabling the system to process documents with varying degrees of user intervention, at specified frequencies. This allows for a gradual transition to fully automated processing (a crawl, walk, run approach).
  • Email Notifications: The system supports email notifications for various EDI document statuses. Users can set up notifications to be sent to relevant departments, keeping stakeholders informed about document processing stages.
  • Audit Trail and Database Maintenance: Our solution includes an audit trail feature, enabling users to track transactions and modifications related to EDI. Additionally, database maintenance ensures optimal system performance by cleaning up older data and preventing system slowdowns.
  • Customization and Error Correction: Users can add additional fields and tailor inbound and outbound documents to ensure they align with specific partner needs. Furthermore, the system offers an extended error correction interface, enabling bulk corrections and ensuring data accuracy.
