How to integrate Netsuite with EDI?
Zenbridge is a platform that converts EDI to API and vice-versa, hence giving you an API for sending and receiving EDI. So in effect to make your environment EDI integrated, you just have to set up Webhooks inside Netsuite and Zenbridge to make the two exchange EDI transactions.
Webhooks acts as a bridge that connects EDI and Netsuite Platform and gives a seamless experience. It assists in the communication of events such as creation, modification, or deletion of assets such as PO, Invoice, etc from the Netsuite platform to third-party platforms such as EDI platforms in real-time. For example, when you set up a webhook using Zenbridge, you can notify events from Netsuite to Zenbridge in real-time and vice-versa.
