How Crossfire’s EDI software works

 

1. Crossfire receives interchanges (files) from you or your partner, picked up via SFTP or over a VAN.

2. Each message is validated by the Crossfire EDI system to make sure it’s in the correct format and data matches on both you and your trading partner’s side.

3. Each message is translated into the required format and sent to the target system.
