- XML Subforms for EDI
- Schematron validation
XML Subforms - no need for a standalone EDI solution
Once, it was complex to make EDI with different variants - but not anymore! If your company send invoice lines like EDI, then the latest version of Lasernet is a better solution for you.
EDI is complex. Everyone knows that. That's why Tabellae has built EDI forms into the Lasernet XML Subforms for each line. Before, you had to start over, where it is now possible to just correct. With XML subforms it has become easier to work with EDI due to a rule-based setup. If one's customers and suppliers should not have the same format, rules can be set up, so you only have to create the EDI format once, and thus not develop and maintain the same EDI format for eg 35 customers.
Rule-based setup makes your worklife easier
With Lasernet 9.8's built-in rule-based setup, it is no longer necessary to build sections for the same EDI format, but simply use XML Subforms. These work on multiple formats, making maintenance easier. If you correct in one subform, you also correct in other formats using it. The rule-based setup also allows sections to be turned on or off depending on whether or not to use them. XML subsforms therefore provide flexible solutions where templates are faster and easier to create and maintain - and this ultimately makes it cheaper for you as a customer.
So does your company deliver EDI to many customers and suppliers, and with different EDI formats - eg delivery dates on product lines for each item? Then upgrade to Lasernet 9.8 and get XML Subforms, which is a more flexible and rule-based system to build EDI formats.
Who are you sending your XML files to? Use Schematron validation in Lasernet and avoid lost days by submitting your XML files to VAN
Do you work with XML? Then you probably know everything about subforms validation when they need to be sent - and validation takes time. If you are tired of waiting for VAN to validate errors in data formats or product lines, then you might be interested in the latest version of Lasernet Output Management?
Save a great deal of time with Schematron Validation
When sending your XML files to VAN, it can take anywhere from a few hours up to 2-3 days for the error to be returned from the VANS provider - and it is time lost. In the latest version of Lasernet Output Management, a system is built in so you can validate XML files easily and quickly: Schematron validation.
Schematron validation is now included in Lasernet Output Management - and this applies to all formats. This means that Lasernet can validate if everything is correct before sending. The function sends a validation message, and if the validation finds errors, the specific error is notified. This makes it easy for the user to correct the error quickly. With Schematron validation, it is now easier to deliver XML files, since you no longer have to wait for your VAN until the XML files are ready for sending.
The new features in Lasernet 9.8 in terms of output save a great deal of time. Delivery of XML is made easier as XML is easier to build, maintain and validate before it is shipped - thus the whole process is much faster.
