Move to Production Status
You approve suppliers for moving to production status based on completion of testing tasks. Optionally, you may have tasks in addition to testing. For example, you may want to require a supplier communication test by sending a test transaction to your EDI system via your preferred communication method.
After completing all required tasks, the supplier is notified of being moved to production and the supplier’s portal view is updated. You can then begin to send production transactions and the supplier sends live production transactions.
The final step of moving to production is made easier by automated EDI status reporting of supplier progress. You will be informed that the supplier has successfully completed all required tasks. Manually preparing status reports for management and suppliers is eliminated.
