How Cin7 integrates with Sobeys

In order to begin trading with Sobeys, a supplier 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:

  • 810 Invoice – Send invoice from Cin7

Why should inventory and EDI be connected?

Don’t waste time and money on a separate EDI connection when you become a supplier to Sobeys. 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 having an inventory solution and EDI under one system include:

  • Greater stock visibility as Sobeys orders automatically come into Cin7, reducing stock availability.
  • Cin7 warehouse management means stock is removed straight away to avoid overselling.
