Once you have reviewed the order in your system, and updated quantities (if applicable), Crossfire will pull a POA, which will be sent to Bidfood.

An ASN is sent to Bidfood via Crossfire when a shipment is created. This confirms the delivery details and outlines the contents of the order.

When you're ready to, you can send invoices to Bidfood via Crossfire at the press of a button. This usually happens by confirming an invoice or completing an order in most systems.

Product Activity Data is sent from Bidfood. Crossfire will typically pick this up, translate it into a readable format/report and send this to you.

Crossfire will pull out a list of products and prices from your system, this will be converted into  Bidfood’s format and sent to them in their required format.

If Bidfood needs to amend an order they have already sent to you, they will send through a PO Change. Crossfire will pick this up, and push this into your system, with an identifier that indicates that there is a change to the order.
