EDI Integration For Microsoft Dynamics GP

MS Dynamics GP EDI

Certified EDI Solution for Dynamics GP Without Customization

A Different Approach to EDI Integrated Solutions

Certified for Dynamics GP, Data Masons EDI is dramatically different from other EDI solutions. The solution can be set up in hours, not days or weeks and is easy to learn, implement and use every day. New trading partner packages are delivered as "kits" that can enable your company to begin processing transactions quickly and no customizations are made to Dynamics GP. This lowers ownership costs, reduces complexity, eliminates upgrade issues, and expands flexibility when purchasing other Dynamics GP add-ons.

Tight Dynamics GP integration is ensured using Microsoft eConnect – Microsoft’s recommended method for integration. Support for all integrated documents is accomplished without source code modifications and there is never duplicate entry of any information. The result is simplified operations, less work, and fewer errors.

Configure Alerts That Prevent Errors

The Alerts Manager monitors your environment and “watches” for situations or events that require intervention by your team or, optionally, the Data Masons Managed Services team. Examples of alerts the Alerts Manager can send include: 

  • Emailing a customer service representative if a ship notice has not been confirmed within 10 minutes after the shipment has left the building.  
  • Sending a text message to the IT Manager if a confirmation is not received within 20 minutes. Escalations can increase accordingly.

Creative workflows can be configured using the power of the Alerts Manager which can fix issues in addition to reporting on them. For example, when a purchase order is received between 8pm and 5am and has an invalid freight carrier code, the Alerts Manager can perform the substitution of a default carrier, create the sales order with an “On Hold” status and send an alert to the account manager and/or the customer.  

The Alerts Manager goes beyond Dashboards for managing fast moving flows of critical information. Well-configured alerts and automated workflows in Data Masons EDI can raise the effectiveness of your organization and become a critical pillar in your organization’s digital transformation journey.

Data Translation 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 translation of document maps

There is 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 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. 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
  • Application of business rules and outcomes during translation
  • Enables custom data standards definitions to leverage existing business documents
  • Supports definition of complex business rules based on your company’s requirements and your business partners’ requirements
  • Powerful built-in error and event logging, allowing your company to create your own error codes and help messages
  • Sophisticated error resolution definition without human intervention
  • Alert messaging support including email and SMS messaging


File format flexibility

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.

Value Added Network (VAN) Service

Data Masons' secure interconnects work with virtually every EDI VAN, including Sterling, IBM, GXS, Pubnet, ANX, Inovis, CommerceHub and iTrade. A low-cost AS2 connection is available for customers that do not need or desire to implement an in-house AS2 solution.

Significant savings over alternative VAN services

The Data Masons VAN service saves a typical customer 30-60% compared to other VAN services, with only a low monthly mailbox rental and a single kilo-character transaction fee (rate), which remains constant regardless of the networks your business partners use. There are no hidden charges, no document fees, no interconnect fees, no peak rate fees, etc. Instead, you get a simple, straightforward invoice for kilo-character usage.

Key Benefits

  • One point of contact for all your EDI requirements
  • Cost-effective and straightforward billing
  • Reliable, industry-leading 99.89% uptime
  • Connects to all of your trading partners that utilize VANs
  • Low-cost way to handle AS2, AS1, etc. without additional software

End-to-End Automation of Key EDI Processes

The Scheduler takes you to a whole new level of value and automation. In addition to the business benefits automation introduces, EDI Workflow Scheduler utilizes the latest 3-tier technology platform designed to deliver improved system performance for all users.

The ability to schedule key EDI processes such as network send/receive, accounting integration, data extraction from accounting and sending of documents to partners, enabling linked tasks – e.g. receive from network then send to accounting, and email error alerts are all features within the complete EDI processing platform.

Other Benefits

  • A 3-tier platform design that enables processes to execute without client-side processing or accessing the Data Masons EDI Client
  • Managing the execution of processes, including simultaneous processes that could conflict
  • Define virtually any type of frequency for scheduled tasks
  • Graphics-based scheduling tool allows for the fast setup of routines, as well as the ability to copy and modify predefined scheduled tasks as needed
  • Runs as a service on any workstation or server and does not require Data Masons' EDI to be open and running
  • Self-monitoring capability alerts the user accordingly if the automated processes are disrupted or stop running
