“As an EDI educator with EDI partners, and an implementer of EDI technology, I have used and recommended EDI Notepad to over 30,000 students over the last several years as a valuable tool for viewing and editing EDI files by both technical and non-technical staff,” said Gary Beatty, President of EC Integrity, Inc. “It is simple to use and delivers exponential value by easing day to day struggles with EDI.”
In today’s marketplace, e-commerce is playing an increasingly important role for small and medium businesses (SMBs) and large enterprises alike, particularly when it comes to competing with giants like Amazon. Data integration, including Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), plays a critical part when it comes to developing a successful e-commerce strategy. Indeed, according to SMB Group, Inc’s 2012 SMB Routes to Market Study, integration has jumped from number four to number one on the list of priorities for medium size businesses over the past year.
Liaison’s EDI Notepad Express enables organizations of all sizes and experience levels to take advantage of the same tools that enterprises are using without the associated high cost and complexity, offering unsurpassed simplicity, utility and efficiency. EDI Notepad helps users view, validate, and edit EDI transactions offering the ability to export interchanges and generate acknowledgements for any EDI envelope opened in its interface. EDI Notepad also ensures the creation of compliant EDI by prompting users for necessary data after each new insertion.
EDI Notepad’s new features and enhancements include:
- SmartTotal enables auto-total inside EDI Notepad using macros

“In 2009, as Liaison was developing a tool for internal EDI validation, we began to recognize the struggles our customers faced when it came to the complex job of managing EDI implementations,” said Robert Fox, Liaison’s senior director of software development. “EDI Notepad was developed with those needs in mind, and SmartTotal and XML view are just two of many enhancements we’ve made to improve usability and support the growing number of users that rely on it every day.”
