EDI Compliance Overview
Home Hardware has had a standing EDI requirement with its suppliers for several years, while most trading partners have complied and are in good standing, there is a large number of trading partners not sending Purchase Order Acknowledgements (855) and Advance Ship Notices (ASN 856). Home Hardware is requesting all suppliers to begin using the EDI transactions listed below.
- 850 – Purchase Order
- 855 – Purchase Order Acknowledgement
- 856 – Advanced Ship Notice
It is our requirement that all Suppliers be actively sending the following EDI transaction by the end of 2019.
- 810 – Invoice
Home Hardware is committed to this strategic course and believe that it will benefit you by eliminating PO errors before product is shipped, eliminate lost or misplaced documents and streamline the logistics process by providing visibility to accurate and on-time shipments. Failure to comply with this request may result in non-compliance fees and a review of your Supplier status with Home Hardware.
