Customised developments often have the following characteristics and may take considerably longer to implement:

  • Higher risk (difficult to predict final project cost)
  • Longer to implement (more risk of not meeting deadlines)
  • Able to easily integrate with current accounting systems
  • More consistent with internal systems architecture
  • Scanner programming required in addition to EDI skills
  • Translation software purchase or modification required

Third party scanpack providers

There are a number of distribution companies who offer services that will meet the Myer EDI Technical requirements for a price per unit processed. They will:

  • Receive EDI orders on your behalf, or a copy from your system
  • Print price tickets and attach them
  • Prepare any other floor ready requirements
  • Scan pack by store and apply Logistics labels
  • Transmit ASNs on your behalf to Myer, and if required a copy to your system
  • Arrange for despatch of shipments to Myer

  • Transferring EDI purchase order details into your inventory system
  • Transferring EDI purchase order details into your ticket production system
  • Transferring scan pack details into your inventory system
