EDP (External Data Processor) is a module in OnSite that allows you to convert text into a sales order and related customer, designs and contact information. There are two types of transactions that can be performed in the OnSite system.
"Inbound" EDP - transactions are used to take text information and convert it into a sales order.
"Outbound" EDP - transactions are used to convert a purchase order to text for the purposes of sending to a vendor or subcontractor. If that subcontractor is also using OnSite they will be able to convert your PO into a sales order.
- Orders are generated from a website and are processed into your OnSite system.
- A 3rd party application takes or creates sales orders and they are processed into your OnSite system
