Are you a Salesforce partner or user seeking a robust EDI solution? Look no further than BOLD VAN, offering seamless integration directly into your Salesforce platform via an API connection.

As a Salesforce user, you're well aware of the power of effective software in smoothing operations. Consider taking its efficiency to the next level by integrating EDI through an API.

How Does it Work?

Through a defined API (application programming interface), data seamlessly flows between Salesforce and BOLD VAN, accommodating various scenarios of order generation and processing.

Inbound and Outbound Data Flow

Whether customers are placing orders with suppliers or receiving orders from them, the system ensures smooth transmission. Orders may originate from either end, leading to their translation into the required EDI format by BOLD VAN. These transactions occur through the API.

Data coming from or going to trading partners can be EDI or any other format and can be transmitted using any protocol required by the trading partner. The Salesforce partner or user does not have to worry about the format — EDI, XML, or whatever the partner requires. Additionally, they do not have to be concerned about the protocol. They just exchange documents via API, and we take care of the non-standardization required by their trading partners.

In essence, Salesforce partners or users can focus on their core business activities without being burdened by the complexities of EDI formats and protocols. By exchanging documents with BOLD VAN via the API, they can rest assured that their data will be seamlessly translated and integrated, facilitating efficient communication with trading partners and enabling smooth collaboration across the supply chain.
