Farmers EDI Compliance

Farmers grew from a mail-order catalog serving remote rural communities to an iconic New Zealand department store chain. Today, Farmers operates 56 stores across the country, specializing in family fashion, beauty, homeware, furniture, electronics and appliances. Cin7’s Direct EDI integration gets you trading quickly and cost-effectively with Farmers while reducing data entry administration and errors and streamlining and automating your supply chain.

How Cin7 integrates with Farmers

  • ORDRSP—Cin7 sends a confirmation letting Farmers know that you’ve fully accepted or rejected a Purchase Order.
  • DESADV—Cin7 translates ASNs into EDI format lets Farmers know when to expect delivery of an order.
  • INVOIC—Cin7 sends Farmers Invoices for dispatched items.
  • CONTRL—Send and receive confirmation of messages received.

Why should inventory and EDI be connected?

Cin7 simplifies complex omnichannel, omni-fulfillment and multinational businesses with an all-in-one cloud inventory, POS, EDI and 3PL solution. The key benefits to integrating inventory with EDI in a single system include:

Here are some key benefits of using Cin7 with built-in direct EDI:

  • Greater stock visibility as orders automatically come into Cin7 and decrease available inventory.
