The WISL EDI - Logistics module(EDIL) provides the framework for receiving and transmitting standard logistics EDI transaction sets. EDIL provides the required control to enable monitoring and review of the transmission process. It performs editing upon incoming EDI batches to ensure conformance with EDI standards. EDIL writes the valid transactions into the corresponding transaction hold files and generates and sends appropriate EDI response transactions.
The transactions are stored in the hold files in formats that are readily convertible to the internal format of any application utilizing the UniVerse data base management system. Standard ASCII fixed or variable length records may also be easily generated from the hold file records to be used with any open systems based application.
