Woolworths EDI Compliance & EDI Services

Woolworths is a well-known supermarket chain in Australia, part of the same company family that owns the Countdown supermarket chain in New Zealand, among other brands.

Benefits of built-in direct EDI with Woolworths

Cin7 is an EDI value added network (VAN), eliminating the need for third party software. Below are the key benefits of built-in direct EDI with Woolworths:

  • One system to trade with EDI retailers.
  • Reduced data entry & mistakes, not having to go through third-party EDI web forms.
  • Direct means purpose built, allowing full control of how Cin7 interacts based on events.
  • Streamlining and automation of processes through greater flexibility.
  • Reliability going direct and not via a third-party.

How Cin7 Integrates with Wayfair

To trade with Woolworths, a supplier must send and receive transaction documents electronically, conforming to the company’s x12 EDI standards. Cin7 is fully compliant to send/receive the following documents directly from the Cin7 interface:

  • 850 Purchase Order—Cin7 translates Woolworths’ purchase orders as individual sales orders in Cin7.
  • 856 Advanced Shipping Notice—Cin7 translates ASNs into EDI format and sends to Woolworths to let them know they can expect the delivery of an order.
  • 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgement—Cin7 sends a confirmation to Woolworths if the purchase order is fully accepted or rejected.
  • 810 Invoice—Cin7 sends invoices to Woolworths for items dispatched to Woolworths.

Why should inventory and EDI be connected?

Cin7 helps retailers and wholesalers make their complex omnichannel, omni-fulfilment and multinational business simple by providing an all-in-one cloud Inventory, POS, EDI and 3PL solution.

The key benefits of having an inventory solution and EDI under one system include:

  • Greater stock visibility as Woolworths 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.
