Thanks to your continued supports and encouragements over the past four years, DIcentral has grown up and become the leading EDI service provider with the most advanced EDI service offerings in the market today.

We have shown that our technology - which we develop and own - is user-firendly, flexible and scalable as we serve more retailers and suppliers.

Although we have built a strong and growing business, our goal is to become the premier EDI service provider in the retail industry.

We add value to our EDI services by offering products like DIconnect and DIreports (see related stories), products that automate processes and convert transaction data to information that business leaders can use to make smart business decisions.

And we simplify processes even more by integrating our service with your software.

But we don’t stop there.

We’re working on new ways to seamlessly integrate DIcentral’s Web-based service with your business software.

In short, we want to be your complete data interchange solution, a solution that is easy to use, accurate, and inexpensive.

In 2005, expect big surprises from us.

Remember, DIcentral is your link to EDI.

DIconnect eliminates manual processes to make it more efficient to establish secure, reliable connections to your entire network of business partners, large and small. Seamless interaction empowers your exchange network to grow, and the more powerful and fluid your network, the more sure your success.

Open Data Connectivity

Enterprises using the downloadable DIconnect benefit from our open data connection for sending and receiving data. This open data connection can be leveraged using commercial or custom data adaptors, allowing companies to move data in and out of proprietary systems such as CRM, ERP, and Legacy with little or no effort.

Automated, Secure Delivery in Any Format

DIconnect offers persistent document delivery to guarantee e-business document transmission over the Internet to DIcentral for translation and delivery to your Business Partner. Messages may be sent and received in any format including XML, CBL, cXML, IDOC, Excel Sheet, X12, andEDIFACT.

Encrypted data is exchanged through partners' firewalls, providing a reliable transaction environment that protects sensitive information of both partner and customer. Documents can be transported via Internet standard protocols including hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP), file transfer protocol (FTP), or simple mail transport protocol.

Easy-to-Use Interface

A simple user interface allows administrators to:

  • Setup login and password
  • Check incoming and outgoing transmissions logs
  • Configure the message persistence
  • View document exchange history
  • Select data adaptors
  • Archive data

Total Open Trading Flexibility

After deploying DIconnect, customers can upgrade their implementations easily. DIcentral provides scalable B2B integration service capabilities for organizations that need to connect rapidly with hundreds or thousands of business partners simultaneously.

Companies with many store orders and multiple items needed a way to create a consolidated report quickly and effectively to provide themselves with a birds eye view of their data.

Enter DIreports, an application that allows vendors to roll up PO data into printed reports or Excel spreadsheets – a from the desktop.

“Whether a company wants to see data on one or 500 PO’s, a supplier can now download our application and in minutes generate reports from their desktop,” says Adi Zarhy, Director of Business Development for DIcentral. Using DIreports, vendors can create printed reports or Excel spreadsheets of the data, complete with header information.

Recently, J.C. Penney required its suppliers to respond to its 753 routing instruction request document in less than 24 hours. Using DIreports, J.C. Penney’s vendors can now populate 95 percent of a 753 document which is
used to respond to the retailer.

Furthermore, if there is any data that is sent back on the return receipt (aka 754), DIcentral’s Web-based solution gives clients the ability to implement such changes (ship date, DC location etc.) in one shot across the board as opposed to manually changing the data per PO, preventing re-keying errors and saving time, both which translate into money savings.

Companies with many store orders and multiple items needed a way to create a consolidated report quickly and effectively to provide themselves with a birds eye view of their data.

Imagine the day when you could download a piece of software that would allow your accounting to generate EDI documents – without special translators, patches, and software one-offs.

Imagine the day when you could configure this software to manage your shipments, orders, cartons, and ASNs – from your desktop.

Today we’re developing software to do that and more.

Perfects and manipulates EDI data according to your business policies


Rather than making integration an expensive and time consuming effort, we believe that EDI integration should be simple and straightforward, a process that doesn’t break your budget or create unnecessary headaches.

Stay tuned.
