Historically, EDI translation has been handled outside the business system, leaving the final linkage into the business system database to programmers, hard-coded programs, or even manual entry. The EDI product takes a new approach by incorporating the mapping and cross reference processes inside OVO-Vision . This delivers a single mapping process between the EDI documents and the business system database, providing a consistent user interface and access to key data from anywhere in the business system.

In addition, EDI provides a thorough workflow process, tying the incoming or outgoing EDI document to the associated business transaction inside OVO-Vision (e.g. invoices with invoices).  This allows the user to drill down to the related transaction detail, from either a business document or an EDI document. EDI documents are also housed in a special EDI file cabinet for easy retrieval.
