We build products for developers to solve EDI at scale. Our APIs allow you to treat EDI just like anything else: a problem to solve using your familiar tools. Our platform is what you expect from your developer tools: 100% self-service setup and 100% usage-based pricing, with a generous free-tier for development and testing.

How does Stedi work?
Stedi provides individual building blocks that developers can use to build their own EDI system. For example, you can use Stedi to receive EDI files over SFTP, store them in a Bucket, and leverage Functions to invoke Stedi’s data transformation APIs like EDI Translate, Mappings. And since Stedi’s APIs can be used independently, you are free to integrate these APIs with your own system, too.
Use Stedi’s HIPAA-eligible APIs and products to build secure and compliant EDI systems that process and transmit PHI.
Equipped with the security features, SLAs, and scalability you need to support high volume integrations.
Use a single API in isolation, or in the context of a larger system — regardless if that system is Stedi or your own.
Powerful products and APIs to help you build and scale your own EDI integrations
Each product can be used independently, or in combination with other Stedi products. Use these APIs in any configuration to fit your business needs and the requirements of your trading partners. You only pay for what you use and we have generous free tiers, so there’s no need to worry about costs while you’re experimenting.
Seamlessly translate between EDI and JSON
EDI Translate allows you to convert any incoming X12 EDI document into JSON and JSON into X12 EDI. Used in conjunction with Stedi Guides, Translate will validate incoming and outgoing EDI documents against trading partner specifications for radically fast and error-free integrations.Learn more ⟶
Define and share EDI requirements
Create machine-readable EDI requirements easily using a no-code visual interface. The output is an artifact that can be used to share interactive documentation, or for parsing, generating, or validating X12 EDI documents using the EDI Translate API.Learn more ⟶
Data in any shape you want
Chances are your business partners work with different data schemas than you do. With Mappings, that’s no longer a problem. Using our uncluttered UI, you can build a mapping definition quickly and after that, you can use the API to map data into the shape you need without extra effort.Learn more ⟶
Run code to power EDI integrations
EDI integrations typically require purpose-built logic to connect the dots across various steps to create a workflow, including any combination of Stedi products and external APIs. With Stedi Functions, you can run custom code to build an end-to-end EDI flow without the hassle of provisioning or managing infrastructure.Learn more ⟶
Provision serverless SFTP
Whether you are building an EDI solution or a B2B integration, you need a way to exchange files with your trading partners. With Stedi’s SFTP you can provision users, share credentials, and begin sending and receiving files in seconds via SFTP or FTPS.Learn more ⟶
Store unlimited objects
Store any type of data, including EDI documents, on the Stedi platform. Using Stedi Buckets, you can read and write documents, access data uploaded via Stedi SFTP, and build scalable B2B workflows driven by Bucket event notifications.Learn more ⟶

Without Stedi, our EDI integration would have been incredibly painful. Every tool they offered fit perfectly into our pipeline. With the help of their superb support and engineering team, they curated a pleasant experience over a domain which begins as arcane. Their APIs are cost-effective and make plain sense.
EDI Translate can convert any incoming X12 EDI document into JSON and JSON into EDI, so you can work with the familiar JSON format. Use EDI Translate with Stedi Guides to validate incoming and outgoing EDI documents against your trading partner specifications.
EDI – Electronic Data Interchange – is an umbrella term for many different “standardized” frameworks for exchanging business-to-business transactions. It dates back to the 1960s and remains a pain point in every commercial industry from supply chain and logistics to healthcare and finance. What makes it so hard? Why is it still an unsolved problem despite many decades of immense usage?
