EDI/Release Accounting Overview
Vanguard provides industry-leading EDI capabilities, with an approach that incorporates the use of table-driven mapping of all ANSI X.12 and EDIFACT transaction sets for all of your trading partners, including standard integration points with many applications. The Knovalent Automotive EDI application provides a powerful, flexible and cost-effective solution.
EDI saves time and can reduce lead-time for raw material procurement and eliminate costly delays due to inaccurate data. EDI requirements are reaching into many applications: Release Accounting, Order Management, Shipping, Invoicing, Accounts Receivable, Purchasing, Receiving, Accounts Payable, and others. The optimal EDI solution must provide for both EDI version control (as customers or vendors implement new versions at different times) and table-driven mapping of EDI data to application databases.
The Vanguard Release Accounting module provides for the management of customer cums and release/ship schedule information, and feeds accurate customer demand to the manufacturing system. EDI transactions are validated and automatically update current release/ship schedules and roll prior schedules to history. Release Accounting gives you the capability to manage releases easily - to reconcile customer cums; to process releases unattended; to create shippers automatically; or to manage customer authorizations or model year-end cum resets.
