The RECADV (Receiving Advice Message) is the electronic version of a Goods Receipt Notification.
Think of it as the packing slip that comes with a shipment, on which corrections and comments can be added if necessary and subsequently returned.
This corrected version with comments and correct figures is electronically sent by means of the EDI message - the RECADV - to the sender of the goods.
The RECADV can be sent by the retailer to the manufacturer or logistics service provider. Also, it can be sent by the logistics service provider to its client.
This way, the RECADV is the basis for billing.
- Fast and automated feedback on deliveries;
- Recent and accurate information;
- Quick billing, with correct data and therefore without credit notes afterwards;
- Quick insight in current stock;
- Quick reply to errors or differences between order and delivery.
EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is a standard for the -automated- exchange of data between the information systems of companies. Basically without any human intervention.
It is a form of "electronic business" which is especially used for frequent transactions.
If you already use a logistic or ERP application, it is required to purchase EDI tools in order to create "EDI messages" and to be able to communicate.
I would be happy to help you start, optimize or renew your processes and EDI interfaces.
