Home Depot EDI Compliance

Home Depot is one of the most recognizable home improvement product retailers in the US. It operates thousands of stores across North America and an eCommerce website. Cin7’s Direct EDI integration gets you trading quickly and cost-effectively with Home Depot while reducing data entry administration and errors and streamlining and automating your supply chain.

How we integrate with Home Depot

Before you begin trading with Home Depot, you must be ready to send and receive transaction documents electronically, conforming to the company’s x12 EDI standards. Cin7 is fully compliant to send and/or receive the following transaction documents:

  • 850 Purchase Order—Cin7 translates Home Depot Purchase Orders as individual Sales Orders in Cin7.
  • 855 Order Response—Cin7 tells Home Depot if you’ve fully accepted or rejected a Purchase Order.
  • 856 Advance Shipping Notice—Cin7 translates ASNs into EDI format and lets Home Depot know when to expect delivery of an order.
  • 810 Invoice—Cin7 sends Home Depot Invoices for dispatched items.
  • 997 Functional Acknowledgements—Send and receive acknowledgements of received messages.
  • 846 Inventory Feed—Cin7 sends Home Depot an inventory feed of all products traded with Home Depot to ensure products are not oversold.

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:

  • Greater stock visibility as orders automatically come into Cin7 and decrease available inventory.
  • Efficient order processing that removes stock right away, preventing overselling.
  • Fast order dispatch via Cin7’s warehouse and 3PL integrations.
  • Precise order processing. Cin7 creates your Purchase Orders directly from your retailer’s EDI orders.
