EDI Testing Process At Myer – Alignment of GS1 details
EDI Testing Process will begin to accredit vendor system and ensure complete and accurate information flows between the systems once vendor new processes and technology are in place. This will enable the efficient movement of goods through Myer distribution centres to stores & customers, and correct payment for the goods. This testing process will be expedited if an established solution package or 3rd party is selected.
This testing process can be more involved if a customised solution is selected, that is a choice for each Supplier to determine. The testing stage is critical to ensure that no technical problems within vendor operations will impact the movement of goods to the stores, Sales to customers and Myer is processing payments to a vendor. The specific tests to be conducted will depend on vendor current EDI capability and the type of orders we have agreed to use.
Alignment of GS1 details
GS1 registration in both supplier and Myer systems. The purpose of this test is to ensure that there is alignment between the supplier and Myer systems in the data registered for each product you supply. The test involves checking your product file against the Myer product file to ensure alignment of GTINS, keycodes where applicable, Cost & Retail prices where applicable and class groups. This test is required for suppliers who wish to confirm that the details in their product file, particularly cost prices, are aligned to the data that Myer will transmit in EDI purchase orders.
Myer will provide a report of all SKUs registered in our system for the supplier. The report will list for each SKU the class group number, Myer keycode, GTIN, supplier style code, item style description, product description, size, supplier colour, cost price and retail price
- The supplier will cross check the list with their product file to ensure all relevant products are registered and that the details are correctly matched
- The supplier will raise any discrepancies with the relevant Myer Buyer
- Myer will amend the details in our system once agreed.
