With Stedi, you can handle hundreds of millions of transactions per day and process large EDI files that are gigabytes in size.

How Stedi works

At its core, Stedi is an EDI translation layer.

You send JSON to Stedi, and Stedi generates EDI files and delivers them to your trading partners. Your trading partners send EDI to Stedi, and Stedi automatically translates those files into JSON and sends them to your business systems.

There are two main aspects to configuring EDI integrations on Stedi.

Onboard trading partners

Anyone, regardless of their technical background or EDI experience, can add a trading partner configuration to Stedi in about 15 minutes. This involves defining the transaction sets you plan to exchange with that partner and the communication methods you plan to use (e.g. SFTP/FTPS or AS2).

We can help you during a free onboarding call, or you can follow our step-by-step instructions.

Integrate Stedi with internal systems

After you configure your trading partner, you will set up pipelines to get transaction data into and out of Stedi. A developer can do this, or our onboarding team can do it for you for free.

  • For each inbound transaction you receive from your trading partner, you can set up webhooks that forward processed data and events from Stedi to your systems.
  • For each outbound transaction you want to send to your trading partner, you can make a Stedi API call to generate and deliver fully-formed EDI files.

As part of this process, you will transform transaction data to and from a format that your internal systems can understand.
