“I call Babelway the hidden gem of the internet because it makes EDI transactions so easy to manage and configure. A very well designed, easy-to-use web interface.”
3M integrates both with their suppliers and their customers but the integrations are not the same (see 3M’s supplier integration).
3M has every reason to want to set up automated document exchanges with their customers. This is why they are very flexible and offer multiple solutions for their clients to integrate with them. That being said, the technologies they support differ depending on your location and your industry. Your 3M contact person should be able to assist you in choosing the most suitable technology. For this reason, it’s possible they will directly fit into your technology landscape without any additional software at all. There are nonetheless a few reasons that could encourage you to opt for a third party even if the technology gap isn’t significant:
If you plan to opt for a third party to integrate with 3M you should know you will be able to implement any integration flow with 3M using Babelway. We fully support all the technologies they offer their customers to integrate with: X12, Edifact, VAN, AS2 but also Odette, Tradacom…
Like all companies your IT landscape probably includes some recent applications which easily integrate over the web with others but also a few legacy systems which are harder to integrate with. In fact, this technology gap might be the only thing keeping you from having the full control of your supply chain.
This is the type of integration challenge we are perfectly suited for. Our platform aims to offer a universal and simple mapping tool to allow you to link any two applications. Through time we have developed numerous connectors which will allow you to connect any system to any trading partner (old and new, using European or American standards etc.).
Most of our customers set up their connections autonomously because that is the way we strive for our platform to work: easy to use, do it yourself, stay in control. For 3M we have such customer success stories. However, we’ve also configured countless connections ourselves. So, on top of a good platform, you will be working with a company that has vast integration expertise and can get you efficiently connected in no time.
