How Cin7 integrates with Metcash

In order to begin trading with Metcash EDI, a supplier must be ready to send and receive transaction documents electronically, conforming to the company’s EDIFACT EDI standards. Cin7 is fully compliant to send and/or receive the following transaction documents:

  • ORDERS – Receive purchase orders directly in Cin7.
  • ORDRSP – Send and receive order response messages in Cin7.
  • INVOIC – Send invoice right from Cin7.
  • ASN – Send advanced shipping notices.

Why should inventory and EDI be connected?

Don’t waste time and money on a separate EDI connection when you become a supplier to Metcash. Use Cin7 with its built-in EDI connectivity to eliminate the time, expense, and complication of third-party EDI software, while reaping the benefits of Cin7’s real-time inventory management capability.

The key benefits of using Cin7 with its EDI integration include:

  • Greater stock visibility as Metcash orders automatically come into Cin7, reducing stock availability.
  • Cin7 warehouse management means stock is removed straight away to avoid overselling.
  • Create purchase orders directly based on EDI orders.
  • A single system to process orders and manage trade with an EDI retailer.
  • A single interface that reduces data entry requirements and the risk of error.
  • Direct means purpose built, allowing full control of how Cin7 interacts based on events.
  • Streamlined and automated sales and invoice processing.
  • A single vendor to deal with for technical support.
  • Real-time stock visibility and stock levels across all your sales channels.
