The first of its kind in the industry, Xebec Data is now offering API integration with their EDI translation platform. Circumventing the traditional flat file coupled with FTP exchange of information that has dominated the industry until now. Xebec is now able to exchange business documents through its RESTful API inspired interface complete with secure login and data transfer.
Following the RESTful API standards, we have developed a platform for programmers that are more comfortable programming to API models than flat file exchange. Using our encrypted https web capabilities, we have developed processes for retrieving login tokens and both pushing and pulling data from our platform via JSON encoded arrays. The process will replace the flat file exchange of data between your 3rd party provider and your ERP system. This is great for ERP packages such as Microsoft Dynamics AX which only allows file exchange if you have the correct add on software installed.
It is possible you already have API connections with retailers such as Amazon as a way of avoiding X.12 EDI. However each of these API connections are completely different for each of your partners. The loose standards for API mean that you are at the whim of whatever your partner mandates in terms of integration. The Xebec API solution means you have one API realtionship with our platform, and we handle all the EDI translation and transmission to your entire supply chain.
We have all the documentation you need laid out in our API. Just give us a call and we can get you everything you need!
