Your optic clients are unwilled or incapable of doing EDI due to technical capabilities or low order volume? Many of these companies simply don’t have the resources or IT capacity to exchange business documents with you in your preferred format. Indeed, small companies may lack the budget, resources or expertise to exchange EDI, XML or other standardised documents, so you probably receive purchase orders from them via fax.
In an other way, softwares publishers don’t necessarily offer a connection with the autopilot of optical tracers, so they can’t decrypt and pass on the shapes with the drilling points. That’s why many optic players still send fax.
Furthermore, all optical softwares aren’t able to export in XML or EDI format to optical suppliers, so fax are very often a source of disruption for suppliers’ customer service. Fax are mainly received at the end of the day at the same time as many phone calls so all the orders can’t be handled on the very day. With our fax conversion to EDI, all fax received before 7 p.m. (local time) will be sent by EDI the very day! It allows to reinforce the customer service quality and to decrease the fax average processing.
In short, manual fax and paper handling usually mean re-keying of data and inadvertent but costly errors. That’s why you may appreciate our fax conversion to EDI solution.
How fax conversion to EDI works?
The optician sends his order by fax. iFaxNet decrypts data received on paper: contents, shapes, drawings, form recognition… and passes them on directly, thanks to EDI, in the supplier’s ERP or information system. iFaxNet can even automatically decrypt and pass on the shapes with the drilling points.
Fax conversion to EDI lets suppliers receive EDI transactions while their clients send faxes. Our fax conversion to EDI called iFaxNet do the conversion and data mapping in between for you.
