RedTail Solutions has released an enhanced interface to their hosted EDI solution to work with the latest release of AccountMate, a popular mid-market accounting software system. RedTail's hosted solution handles all communications between trading partners and manufacturers and distributors using AccountMate through its RTTM (RedTail Transaction Manager).

With the interface created by Figtree Consulting, Inc., the EDI purchase orders are seamlessly moved to AccountMate sales orders. Once the items are shipped, information is passed to the RTTM to generate and transmit the EDI invoice to the trading partner.

The solution provides a smooth interface which simplifies work for order entry and billing clerks. Clear reporting provides straightforward tools for management oversight.

AccountMate's latest release, version 7.5, includes many new features. The RedTail interface for this release, created for RedTail by Figtree, is now available so that manufacturers and distributors who are currently using, or wish to use, this award winning accounting and EDI solution can upgrade to the latest versions of both. The Figtree integration can be added to all AccountMate SQL and Express 7.5 versions. No AccountMate source code is required and the interface is provided as part of the RedTail EDI service at no additional charge.

The EDI integration also automates preparation of the Advanced Shipping Notice for companies using ACCU-DART software modules and Hand Held Radio Frequency Terminals to transmit shipping information in real time from the warehouse to the accounting system. With the RTTM, package level detail information is gathered from the AccountMate and ACCU-DART files and passed to RTTM where it is merged with the EDI purchase orders and used to generate Advanced Shipping Notices.
