Retailers and suppliers use Batch to manipulate and manage their supply chain data. We can also establish secure automated links to booksellers' accounts and stock control packages. In addition, we provide a reliable, cost-effective and constructive service to translate data from any format into the format required by our customers' trading partners, including online retailers.
Booksellers who want to take information directly into their stock control systems or accounts packages can interact with Batch using Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) files instead of the website if they prefer. The type of transactions EDI can be used for includes invoices, credits and remittances as well as returns requests and authorisations. We use a variety of communication methods to send and receive these files.
Batch Integration Software, or BIS, is a program that allows invoices and credit notes to be downloaded from a bookseller’s Batch Payments account to their PC. Transactions are imported into Sage and each one is applied to the appropriate supplier record in the purchase ledger. Booksellers who use the UK accounting systems Sageline 50 and Instant can use BIS to integrate with Batch wherever they are in the world.
