As a leading EDI provider focused on supply chain and eCommerce procurement, Logicbroker strives to provide visibility to transactions and the associated documents for our clients. There are certain EDI documents that fall outside the scope of standard integrations, and to avoid custom mapping or development charges for our clients, Logicbroker simply passes an unsupported document via email as an attachment.
To view unsupported documents, Logicbroker recommends an EDI utility to view the document information. Our preferred EDI reader is Liaison EDI Notepad. It allows users to easily open, read, and modify EDI documents as needed. It is free and can be downloaded here: http://www.liaison.com/products/integrate/edi-notepad/
To open EDI documents, simply download and install the program, save the EDI file you would like to open with the file extension “.edi”, and open the file in EDI notepad. Most clients find this method to be an easy way to manage the occasional exception.
