Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

Norvanco International recognized EDI solutions early on as the means to facilitate quick and accurate order fulfillment and to provide multi-level cost savings over traditional paper-based information systems. Utilizing EDI services, we electronically receive and process tens-of-thousands of purchase orders and shipment confirmations daily.

Using VAN, AS2, FTPS, or proprietary e-mail files, data transfer between client, Norvanco and recipient occurs seamlessly. Operational efficiencies, productivity and accuracy all increase in lock-step.

Through our proprietary client interface, eVista, real-time access to inventory, shipping (historic and pending) and delivery information is available 24/7 in a totally secure environment over the Internet. eVista offers one-time data entry, on-line data storage, automatic reconciliation, faster management reporting and the opportunity to improve customer service while reducing errors and administrative costs.
