EDI 852: Product Activity Data
The EDI 852 is used by retailers and e-commerce businesses to provide trading partners with product activity data. The information in an EDI 852 can include a range of data from inventory levels to sales rates.
The EDI 852 can be used by distributors, retailers, and warehouses to provide their suppliers with the information they need to ship, stock and re-order to maintain product levels. An EDI 852 typically includes information, such as:
- Item Description and UPC
- Quantity Sold
- Quantity on Hand
- Quantity on Order
- Sales History
- Sales Forecasts
At Effective Data, our EDI solutions focus on providing retailers and distributors with a secure, timely, and accurate way to deliver important documents. The EDI 852 is essential in maintaining stock levels and planning ahead. In addition, our EDI solutions will keep your data safe and accurate as you communicate with partners.
Data for the EDI 852 can either be manually entered into an EDI standard document or pulled from data integration through your in-house EDI system.
Once the data is entered into the EDI translator, the conversion process will begin into an EDI document.
The EDI 852 is a critical document for retailers to manage inventory and product levels. At Effective Data, our EDI solutions provide complete security and knowledge of the EDI transmission process.
EDI 852 transactions are most commonly sent directly to the receiver where the receiver of the EDI 852 decodes the EDI into a document that the recipient can use. The second way of sending the EDI 852 is to send it via a secure dial-up connection to a Value-Added Network (VAN) and then is routed to the recipient.
