This webinar will educate manufacturers and distributors on how an integrated shipping solution can reduce the risks associated with ASN & EDI requirements and strengthen the relationship long-term.

Insite Software, a leading provider of B2B and B2C ecommerce platforms and shipping solutions, today unveiled a new webinar for distributors and manufacturers doing business, or considering doing business, with big box retailers or the U.S. government. The educational event will explore how the Advanced Ship Notice (ASN) (EDI 856) and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) affect enterprise shipping processes and how an integrated shipping solution addresses common pitfalls through automation, increasing efficiency and reducing costs. The complimentary, live webinar will take place on Thursday, February 23, 2012, at 1:00 PM CT.

“When a major retailer or government entity decides to carry your items, it is a reason to celebrate,” said Brian Strojny, CEO of Insite Software. “While the new relationship brings a considerable increase in revenue, there are some challenges that suppliers must overcome if they are to be successful. For example, manufacturers will need to provide the retailer with accurate and detailed shipment information in the format they require or risk charge backs or the eventual loss of the account. This webinar will educate manufacturers and distributors on how an integrated shipping solution can reduce the risks associated with ASN and EDI requirements and strengthen the relationship long-term.”

During this 45-minute webinar attendees will learn:

  • The basics of ASN and EDI technology.
  • How to avoid key shipping pitfalls in servicing big box retailers.
  • How an integrated shipping platform can reduce the risks and headache associated with ASN and EDI.
