Send Invoices To Customers Invoice (ANSI 810) to a customer can be generated simply by indicating that all customer invoices should be sent by EDI or by marking individual invoices as "Ready To Send".
Send Advance Shipping Notice Advance Shipping Notice (ANSI 856) can be generated when required by trading partner to notify when goods have been shipped. The ASN can detail information about the shipment such as the cartons contained and the items and quantities in each carton. Carton information can include a unique carton number for which a matching UCC-128 bar code label can be generated. This capability is essential when dealing with large retail organizations.

Receive Order Inquiry From Customer and Send Order Report Customers can send in Order Inquiry (ANSI 869) to check on status of specific items on an order or an entire order. The system will automatically respond with an Order Report (ANSI 870) providing this information to the customer without requiring any human intervention.
