What is EDI Payment Setup?
The Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Setup process involves coordination between customers, accounts receivable staff and, in some cases, IT and/or sales staff, to setup and test the electronic processing of incoming customer payments. This includes the initial setup of the connection (typically by Sales, AR and/or IT team members), the transmission of a test invoice to the customer (referred to as a "penny test") and the payment and confirmation of the test invoice.

Q: How do you create your Workflow Templates?
A: From real-world consulting engagements with Fortune 500 leaders. We’ve spent 25 years analyzing operations at hundreds of leading companies worldwide, documenting thousands of business processes at precise levels of detail.
