EDI with Elliott SPS Services (ESS) - A Cost-effective, Efficient, & Automated Solution.

EDI with Elliott SPS Services (ESS)

Elliott offers an EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) solution by partnering with SPS Commerce. SPS is a leading EDI solutions provider. We offer Elliott SPS Services (ESS), which is a cloud solution that converts data back and forth between SPS Commerce (XML format) and Elliott (TXT format). While you will continue receiving support from us for Elliott-related EDI issues, you will be supported by SPS for EDI issues that do not involve Elliott. Both parties are committed to providing you with the highest quality support possible. This solution lets SPS do what they do best -- EDI. And it allows NETcellent to focus on what we do best -- Elliott. This results in a perfect EDI solution for Elliott Business Software users.

EDI with Elliott SPS Services (ESS) offers many advantages compared to the traditional EDI mapping solution. There are no upfront, expensive third-party software like ECS & Delta required and no yearly recurring maintenance. There is no EDI server hardware, ongoing IT maintenance or AS2 certificate exchanges required. Because there is no EDI mapping required with ESS, it results in less start-up costs and lower risks if you need to start using ESS as an integrated EDI solution.

Furthermore, if you can't afford the already lower entry fee for an integrated EDI solution with ESS, you can start with an inexpensive entry level solution, like SPS Web Forms. Rest assured that as your EDI business picks up with a particular trading partner, you can convert to the ESS integrated solution with automation.
