Manufacturing Suppliers

The supply chain in manufacturing is heavily influenced by the just-in-time delivery demands of manufacturers. Suppliers need EDI to transact business in a timely manner with manufacturers not only located in North America, but also their subsidiaries in Europe and Asia.

EDI in manufacturing is complex and that’s where Integral Group can help. We understand the differences for manufacturing suppliers compared to your counterparts in retail. They are accustomed to receiving an EDI 850 purchase order to initiate the order cycle. On the other hand, you will receive an EDI 830 planning schedule instead of an 850 for orders. Through the 830 your customer is sharing their manufacturing schedule and you are expected to ship your components to their plant just-in-time for manufacturing. An EDI 856 is the most important document for your business. It notifies the manufacturer that your products are in transit and when to expect delivery.

Did you know…

  • Many manufacturers don’t use an EDI 850 purchase order. Instead, they send an EDI 830 planning schedule to notify suppliers of upcoming production schedules
  • The EDI 856 is the most important EDI document for manufacturing suppliers
  • In North America ANSI X.12 is the chosen EDI standard while in Europe, EDIFACT is the EDI preferred standard. The X.12 830 equivalent in EDIFACT is DELFOR. The X.12 856 equivalent in EDIFACT is DESADV
We work with many suppliers like yours across North America. Our Order Management service manages the order life cycle and ensures you are meeting manufacturers' stringent requirements.

Are you using two or more EDI service providers? It costs you money and requires extra training, time and effort to keep up. You might think you have no choice – but you really do.

Even though some retailers may endorse a particular EDI service provider, Avalon connects to those very same retailers every day. See our list of retailer connections.

If you're using a retailer portal like WalMart Retail Link or Amazon Vendor Central, you may not know they give you the option to bypass their portal and use Avalon instead – all you have to do is ask.

By consolidating all your connections you only need one service – Avalon

Avalon is available for a flat monthly fee. See our flat rate service plans or reach out to us and see how much you can save.
If you haven’t changed your EDI provider in the last three years or longer, now is the ideal time to take advantage of lower costs. At Integral Group we can deliver real savings through our EDI for a flat monthly fee plans. Even if you’re outsourcing EDI to another company, get an instant quote for Avalon and compare.

It costs you $0 to switch to Integral Group from an in-house EDI system or another EDI service provider.

There are no trading partner setup fees, no mapping fees, no transaction fees, no VAN fees and no long term contract. You pay a flat monthly fee for all your EDI activity and that’s it!

Once you make the switch you won’t have to worry about escalating EDI costs again.
