    Faster onboarding & better control

    You can set up integrations in a few days as opposed to weeks or months. API eliminates the need to understand the whole world of EDI.

  • Validation

    Realtime validation for 100% compliance

    Our API can validate non-compliance in real time. This means better compliance and elimination of chargebacks. That’s something EDIs can’t do in realtime.
