Scheer Process Automation Suite provides its own solution for the EDI connection of communication partners and the exchange of information. The enhancement into the Process Automation Suite goes far beyond what standard adapters in the market offer. Scheer PAS is fully functional EDI software with a user interface for the administration and control of all your electronic communication.
EDI with Scheer PAS gives you complete independence from external service providers. Information from every partner and every communication can be connected and processed without limit from your own environment. This way you cease to incur ongoing costs for the connection of individual partners as well as the transaction-based costs for the transmission of information.
This carries enormous potential for savings especially for B2B companies with high frequencies of electronic data transfer. In addition it is possible to merge the Suite’s existing functionality, such as mapping implementation and the integration of systems or BPMN, seamlessly with the EDI interface. This way end-to-end tests of the entire environment are possible without any additional effort.
The future security of communication formats plays a decisive role in electronic data transfer. Many of the common EDI standards are currently being replaced by new protocols. Scheer PAS is not reliant on a particular communication format but offers comprehensive coverage of the relevant current and prospective standards. Alongside XML, CSV, SAP IDoc and X12 communications can also be exchanged in any desired UN/EDIFACT format.
In addition we also support EDIFACT subsets as well as sector specific standards such as HL7 or VDA. This creates a high level of flexibility and planning security for your company.
Furthermore, the choice of communication partner is unlimited. Messages can be sent and received via http as well as https. Confirmation of receipt is either synchronous or asynchronous, according to your requirements.
The solution is Drummond / DGI (UCC) certified. Messages can be sent and received via HTTP or HTTPS. Confirmation of receipt of messages can follow synchronously and asynchronously.
Currently, the following transfer protocols, encryption processes and signatures are supported:
EDI transfer protocols:
FTP, FTPS, SFTP
AS2 stands for Applicability Statement 2 and is one of the most common EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) transmission standards. The reason for its wide usage in business is specifically that AS2 uses the internet as its communication path. This way the protocol is not tied to the use of a proprietary network. For transmission via the internet AS2 uses HTTP as well as HTTPS protocols.
AS2 standardization therefore enables the cost effective and secure exchange of information. The role of the standard is simple: messages are digitally packaged, encrypted and signed. The recipient confirms the timely receipt of the message to the sender via a receipt of delivery message. This receipt is called an MDN or Message Disposition Notification. The message format is not of relevance for the standard. All data can be transported safely and reliably with the help of the AS2 protocol.
