Universal Data Translator (UDT)

The UDT takes data translation far beyond existing EDI/XML mapping tools

Data Masons' UDT transforms data to or from any EDI, ASCII, XML, or ODBC data source dynamically, without intermediate files. The result is high-performance data transformation, elimination of common file exchange errors, easy re-queuing of documents, and simplified error handling.

Fast, simple tranlation of document maps

Data Masons' UDT has no limit on the types of documents or data sources that can be read or written simultaneously. This eliminates the need to create complex intermediate files that hinder performance and require accounting system modifications to accommodate EDI and other e-commerce data elements.

Transformation document “maps” are actually easily readable XML files. A graphical interface enables the user to create common translation document maps such as invoices in minutes.

Standards-based customization

The UDT’s standards-based design makes it easy to utilize existing data definitions – simply load or create the necessary standard like an EDI or XML standard. Data Masons provides many common data standards at no additional cost.

Business rules, which can be customized by the user, provide powerful error handling, messaging and even resolution of data errors through internal tools or external programs.

Key benefits 

  • Dynamic data transformations and mapping from multiple heterogeneous sources
  • No programming is required to create powerful transformations, due to an extensible, data-driven design

  • Powerful built-in error and event logging, allowing your company to create your own error codes and help messages

Files can be loaded and integrated from a variety of formats, including ANSI X.12, EDIFACT, Tradacoms, cXML, XML, all ASCII, PIDX, OILDEX, ADP, RosettaNET, Odette, VDA and OpenInvoice.
