Going EDI live and additional actions
After the validation (testing) stage has been successfully completed, the EDI transmissions can go live. In some cases, together with the go-live stage, trading partners continue testing to ensure that everything is functioning smoothly.
At this phase, you and your trading partners may start exchanging EDI messages via the EDI provider. Also, some additional services for the teams may be needed, e.g. EDI training, and sharing learning materials to go deeper into EDI usage.
Going live may signal that the onboarding is successfully completed. However, you and your trading partner may continue working on developing guidelines, periodical tests and finding ways to raise the efficiency of electronic communication.
