EDI communication made easy

A central solution for your EDI data exchange

i‑effect® supports all common EDI transmission protocols. You send and receive all EDI messages within one software.

Your EDI system grows with your requirements

Start with one EDI exchange protocol and add more as needed. The functional range of i‑effect®® grows with your requirements.

Keep track of traffic

No matter which protocol you use: We display all your incoming and outgoing EDI messages in a common document inbox and outbox.


Volume-independent EDI solution

Define any number of client and servers. No matter if you set up only one or hundreds of EDI client/EDI servers, send a few or tens of thousands of messages, i‑effect®® handles these tasks with the same reliability and performance.

Quick and straightforward EDI onboarding

In order to connect your EDI partners to your EDI system as easily as possible, i‑effect®® offers a number of features (forms, certificate manager, PDF for onboarding) that support you in establishing EDI communication within a short time.

Advanced master data: EDI sender and recipient

With i‑effect® you can of course define multiple senders for your EDI system. Thus, the software also allows you to map several locations or sales brands. This also applies, for example, to the branches of your EDI partners. With the help of our extended master data, you can also store the internal customer numbers or GLNs of your partners.

Certificate store incl. notification system

The certificate memory integrated in i‑effect® allows you to keep track of the certificates used for EDI data exchange at any time. You will receive a notification before certificates expire and thus never run the risk of missing the exchange of your certificates.
