Share Article

Solves challenge to process promotional fulfillment transactions, and is in production now.

Digitalrep LLC, the company that turns data into decisions, announced today that it has successfully implemented its Business-to-Business (B2B) Cloud Services solution for Salt Communications, a leading integrated marketing agency and Office Depot, the industry’s top global supplier of office products and services.

“We’re able to manage tens of thousands of secure, electronic purchase order, order acknowledgement, shipping notice, and invoice documents for Office Depot every day, utilizing the latest electronic data interchange technology available, thanks to Digitalrep,” said Jim Crystal, co-founder at Salt Communications. “Digitalrep has been a terrific technology partner of ours for more than 5 years, and we depend on them every day.”

Digitalrep’s software development team was required to pass strenuous EDI compliance testing by Office Depot to become a Vendor Partner. Upon doing so, the Digitalrep team built, deployed, and currently hosts an internet portal or “cloud service” that manages the flow of critical EDI documents for the retailer in a highly secure way.

Digitalrep’s B2B Cloud Services solution provides an AS2 “hub” that manages transactions securely and stores information in an industry standard SQL data warehouse. The hosted application receives secure documents, acknowledges receipt from the sender, processes the data, and generates daily reports that are sent electronically to the appropriate recipients who need the information. Tens of thousands of electronic documents are processed each day, 7 days per week, year around.

“This isn’t simple EDI. We worked closely with the Salt Communications team to engineer a solution that enables Office Depot to create, manage, and track promotional programs, utilizing highly secure transactional processes,” said John Meaney, Digitalrep’s President. “We’re very pleased with the work our team has done, and proud to be a partner with both Salt Communications and Office Depot.”
