Electronic Data interchange


DPFE is an authorized solutions provider of the Lanham EDI product. The Lanham solution offers a comprehensive set of fully outsourced EDI services that helps companies take full advantage of their EDI investments.

Historically, EDI translation has been handled outside the business system, leaving the final linkage into the business system database to programmers, hard-coded programs, or even manual entry.  The Lanham EDI product takes a new approach by incorporating the mapping and cross reference processes inside Microsoft Dynamics NAV.  This delivers a single mapping process between the EDI documents and the business system database, providing a consistent user interface and access to key data from anywhere in the business system.

In addition, Lanham's EDI provides a thorough workflow process, tying the incoming or outgoing EDI document to the associated business transaction inside NAV (ie. invoices with invoices).  This allows the user to drill down to the related transaction detail, from either a business document or an EDI document. EDI documents are also housed in a special EDI file cabinet for easy retrieval.
