Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Supplier Information

EDI Overview

EDI is a method of file transmission between ERP systems by converting files such as purchase orders or invoices, into formats which can be directly integrated between supplier and customer. The Reece Group has many suppliers who manage their orders and invoices via EDI which reduces the errors that can occur with manual data entry.

Our EDI service is hosted with MessageXchange who provide set up and ongoing support for our suppliers.

If you have any questions relating to Reece EDI, get in contact with us via email edi@reece.com.au

New Suppliers & Current Suppliers Requiring Testing

Current Reece Suppliers who would like to join the EDI program will first need to choose an EDI Service Vendor. These vendors will assist you when transacting data between your systems and the Reece Group.

Some Vendors include (but not limited to):

  1. MessageXchange

  2. B2BE

  3. Pacific Commerce

  4. True Commerce

 

These suppliers are external to Reece, have previous connections to Reece and are contactable to set up an EDI solution.

Before contacting Reece, please review our Message Implementation Guides (or MIGs). These are the documents that lay out what format the Purchase Orders will be sent to you in, and the format we require for Control Messages and Invoices.

Once complete, please fill in this on-boarding form online. This will start the project with Reece EDI and we will begin testing before moving EDI into Production.

Further clarification can be found by email the EDI Team on edi@reece.com.au.

Current EDI Suppliers

We require a small testing stage when a supplier changes their systems and still want to transact on EDI. Since you will already have an EDI Service Provider, you can also complete this on-boarding form online. This will start a small project with Reece EDI to ensure EDI will continue to operate once your systems change over.

You may require our guides to EDI file structures. These guides are called Message Implementation Guides (or MIGs). These will outline the necessary segments your Invoices will require in order to be successfully transmitted into the Reece Group.
