An introduction to Golden EDI for Partners
Golden Edi offers a solution for exchanging business documents such as invoices, orders and price lists between two parties. This makes it easier to automate the flow of business documents between companies, saving time, money and the environment, as well as decreasing the risk of errors.
Golden EDI combines the seamless integration capability of Microsoft Dynamics NAV Extensions with the flexibility, reliability and scalability of the cloud service techniques.
We aim to make the implementation of EDI into MS Dynamics NAV as easy as it could possibly be. That is why we are providing the Golden EDI integration for MS Dynamics NAV as an Extension as a complement to the traditional FOB-format.
For you as a Microsoft Dynamics NAV partner, enabling Golden EDI in your customer´s ERP is achieved by installing this extension and setting up the mappings to the tables you choose – there is no need for coding inside Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
Implementing EDI requires mapping between the ERP and the business documents that should be exchanged. Even if standard EDI formats are used, there is often a need of customising how information is handled in the ERP. These customistations are done with mappings inside the ERP without the need of coding.
The generation of the chosen EDI-format is handled outside the ERP system. We provide a cloud based software as a service that takes care of the EDI format generation as well as the exchange of EDI documents between the connected parties.

Golden EDI supports the order-invoice document flow, such as:
Documents could also be sent in PDF-format.
Golden EDI automatically notifies you upon events of your choice. Notifications are provided as:
Golden EDI also provides a workflow using Dynamics NAV standard triggers connected to a setup of different types of actions.
One type of the Golden EDI mapping is used to check and validate the consistency of the received information or before sending information.
We know by experience that customer needs are different. Though there are detailed EDI standards, there are often a need for custom tweaks. Besides the need of different document formats, there are also different ways of exchanging the documents (such as FTP).
As we see it, the ERP system in its own is not the right tool for the job. That is why we are providing the Golden EDI Cloud Service. This way, you are able to keep the variations in implementation and communication outside the ERP.
Golden EDI is the delicate fruit of our own experience providing EDI to Microsoft Dynamics NAV customers.
Since 1998 we (as in the founders of Golden EDI) have been implementing EDI into Microsoft Dynamics NAV as well as the former Navision Attain. From our experience, implementing EDI too close to the ERP is a rather painful approach.
The founders of Golden EDI who have been working together since 2003 have different backgrounds. Some of us have been working as ERP consultants since the time before the early days of Navision Attain. Some of us have a long background in custom systems development in the .NET environment providing tailored software to customers with high demands.
