1. Connect – One ERP Connection to Unlimited Trading Partners

One simple connection to OmPrompt provides unlimited connections to your trading partners. Connect in any format or we can provide standard ERP connectors to all common enterprise systems such as SAP, Oracle, Infor and other leading applications.

2. Extract – Supports Any Document, Any Format

OmPrompt supports any business document and any document format. OmPrompt automatically extracts required business data from any document types, structured electronic formats and unstructured manual document formats.

3. Apply Business Rules – Ensuring Data Normalisation

OmPrompt automatically applies business rules and business logic to each message processed through the OmPrompt platform. OmPrompt can transform item codes, location codes, UOMs from and to your own required data standards, which means that you and your trading partners can understand each other’s data. OmPrompt can also apply business logic to correct key data such as delivery lead-times/delivery locations automatically, meaning information can flow freely, without manual intervention.

4. Validate – Ensuring 100% Compliance

Once the data has been extracted and business rules applied, documents are validated against predefined syntax and content validation rules to ensure structure and content compliance. Inbound documents from trading partners are validated to ensure compliance to your back-office ERP application, and outbound documents to trading partners are validated to ensure compliance to their required EDI message standards.

5. Exception Management – Rapid Escalation When Things Go Wrong

When validation or business rules fail, automated exception rules are triggered. Documents failing due to technical issues are escalated to OmPrompt’s support and operations team for review and correction. Any documents failing due to data content issues such as unknown delivery addresses or product codes, are normally self-corrected. Correction usually takes place within the ERP application by using default or agreed document hold indicators.
