A typical company uses EDI for both inbound and outbound documents. Some examples of EDI transactions supported by the MIS EDI Interfaces are:
- Sales Orders

- Catalog Releases
- Purchase Orders
- Functional Acknowledgments
- Organizational Relationships

Some EDI transactions involve a Value Added Network (VAN), some use the internet, and some require direct computer interfaces. Data can be sent to and from the MIS system via the Internet, UNIX based systems, Windows based systems, and/or proprietary systems. Accu-Tech has assisted with and designed simple PC-based transactions, along with complex multi-level interfaces that communicate directly with your customer or vendor’s system.
