Share Article

DataTrans Solutions announces that it has become the exclusive third party EDI provider for Foster Electric America. By partnering with DataTrans, Foster has become the newest member of their eCommunity program allowing Foster vendors access to DataTrans' intuitive and easy-to-use WebEDI system.

DataTrans Solutions, a leading provider of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) solutions and support, announced today that it has become the exclusive EDI provider for Foster Electric Inc, a global leader in acoustics and audio technology. The agreement gives Foster’s suppliers access to DataTrans’ powerful and intuitive WebEDI system. This web-based portal allows businesses to easily process business documents electronically without requiring expensive EDI software or extensive training. This provides Foster with a simple solution to quickly achieve 100% EDI compliance among their suppliers, both domestic and international.

When compared to traditional paper documents, transactions done via EDI cost less time and money and help eliminate costly errors caused by bad data. With Foster suppliers scattered across the globe, EDI allows for faster consolidation of document transmission and processing. This results in lower costs, fewer errors, and more efficient communications with trading partners.

“DataTrans developed its e-Community program to utilize our WebEDI solution as a tool which allows companies like Foster to rapidly enable all suppliers on EDI to achieve all of the efficiency gains and benefits of 100% EDI compliance. We welcome our partnership with Foster and the opportunity to implement our EDI solution to provide almost immediate EDI to all Foster suppliers, regardless of their knowledge of information technology,” said Mike Franks, President of DataTrans Solutions.

By choosing DataTrans as their third party EDI provider Foster minimized the strain placed on their internal systems and lessened the time required to get their supplier network EDI capable. Foster was able to easily add non-EDI suppliers to its current EDI network with no map changes and minimal internal setup requirements. DataTrans WebEDI simply adapts to Foster’s existing mapping and other EDI requirements after a one time setup for all Suppliers utilizing WebEDI.

“Working with DataTrans allowed us to quickly bring a number of our existing suppliers to EDI compliance. Using their web-based solution meant that the existing framework was already in place and we just had to get our vendors setup to use it,” said Aaron Hernandez. “We’re very pleased to be working with DataTrans.”
