SourceDay Unveils Partnership with SPS Commerce to Power 100% PO Delivery

Proprietary API extends customers’ SourceDay system to their EDI suppliers, giving manufacturers a single workflow and real-time visibility across the entire PO lifecycle

AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 1, 2024 — Today, SourceDay launched SourceDay EDI, Powered by SPS Commerce, the first and only supply chain collaboration platform to provide manufacturers and distributors insights and mitigation workflows to resolve high-impact supply chain issues across all suppliers, including those who work in other technology workflows, such as EDI.

With the proprietary API connection, co-developed by SourceDay and SPS Commerce, the two technologies exchange the PO information, PO acknowledgments, PO updates, and ASNs. The suppliers can update the PO with their EDI workflow, and the manufacturer will receive and be able to work and respond to all updates within their SourceDay workflow – enabling each party to work in their respective native environment of business processes and tools to receive and collaborate and manage exceptions on their critical PO data.

The result is a transformative experience that bolsters supply chain resilience, responsiveness, and readiness for modern-day business demands with real-time supply chain collaboration.
