Boot Barn EDI New Vendor Requirments
Boot Barn EDI Vendor program serves for utilizing EDI technology with its vendors. In keeping with its strategic initiative to improve operating efficiency, Boot Barn is committed to utilizing EDI. Boot Barn is currently utilizing EDI for PO issuance and will be exploring other technologies as they become available. Boot Barn strongly encourages the use of EDI, in an effort to convert manual processing of purchase orders, invoices, and advanced shipment notifications (ASN’s).
EDI will reduce the potential for lost or inaccurate orders by offering Boot Barn an improved visibility and tracking of data flow. As Boot Barn continues to grow and invests in information systems, it is vital that the data shared between our companies be 100% accurate. Boot Barn depends on its automatic replenishment systems to create purchase orders and as the company continues to implement EDI, its ordering process will become more efficient. In order to make the most of these investments and to continue to prosper, there can be no discrepancies between Boot Barn purchase order and vendor invoice. In addition, the orders must be delivered on-time, as specified, on the purchase orders.
Boot Barn employs the use of:
- 810 – Electronic Invoicing – Inbound Invoicing to Boot Barn. Transaction triggered by Vendor 856 EDI.
- 850 – Purchase Orders – Outbound purchase order issuance from Boot Barn to Vendor.
- 856 – Ship Notice/Manifest. Need to ensure that the ASN is sent during load tendering to last-mile carrier. A copy of packing slip is attached to the email request. The ASN must comply with Boot Barn’s 856 4010 layout standards. All segments and fields are mandatory for a valid ASN. If a vendor’s ASN data is causing downstream re-work, such as problem receiving due to bad ASN data; a non-compliance chargeback will be applied.
