Orchard EDI Operation Guidelines
Orchard EDI Operation requirements for the logistics channel must be implemented to flow supplier’s products prior to receiving their first PO from Orchard. Suppliers may connect with Orchard using any value-added network (VAN). A certified service bureau or other provider can be used to process the supplier’s Orchard EDI data for them. The supplier will be responsible for payment on any services, communications and mailbox fees assessed by their network as well as any other EDI service provider
costs indicated by their contract.
The supplier is accountable (not their service provider) for meeting all Orchard EDI requirements when doing business with Orchard
Orchard EDI Implementation and Testing
The supplier will implement EDI by choosing one of the following options:
- Develop an in-house solution.
- Add Orchard Supply Hardware to an existing system.
- Use a certified service bureau or provider of your choice.
Once a decision is made from the options above the supplier will test their internal systems and transactions. They will complete a test with an authorized third party. A third party (on behalf of Orchard) will contact the supplier to conduct a test of EDI transactions. Once testing is complete and the supplier becomes certified all required EDI transactions by the PO order “live date” established by an Orchard merchant will take place.
