EDI Integrations

With tracezilla you can send documents electronically to supermarket chains via EDI.

tracezilla has integrations for the following EDI providers:

With EDI, you can exchange order confirmations and invoices and in most cases also delivery notes. Several supermarket chains require EDI integration in order to trade products. Therefore, it can be a big advantage with an EDI integration.

Contact tracezilla support or one of the above EDI suppliers to get started.

Master data

Master data must be in place to be able to send documents via EDI. Master data for EDI are EAN numbers on the product types and GLN numbers on the stores’ locations.

You yourself are responsible for adding master data.


Add GLN and specify EDI method for partner location

  1. Go to Partners in the top menu.
  2. You can use the filters on the left side to search for the partner. Click on the relevant partner.
  3. Under the partner’s location, you can click Edit. In the Global Location Number (GLN/EAN) field, you can insert the EAN number. Choose an EDI method. You can read about the EDI methods below.

EDI methods

  • Nemhandel: NemHandel is mandatory to use when you trade with the public sector.
  • EDIFACT: UN standard used for exchanging business documents including order confirmations, delivery notes and invoices. Many larger private companies use EDIFACT, including most supermarket chains.
  • PEPPOL: International standard for invoicing by public authorities.


Add EAN to the product types

  1. Click on Inventory in the top menu and then on Item Types.
  2. You can choose to 1) add the EAN to the item types inside tracezilla one by one or 2) download an import template where the numbers can be inserted.

1) If you want to add the numbers in tracezilla, click on Edit next to the item type. On the Names and Ident. tab, EAN is inserted in the fields to the right. Click Save when the numbers are added.

2) If you want to add EAN to several product types at once, you can download a template where the numbers can be inserted. The template can be loaded into tracezilla afterwards with EAN. This is done by:

  1. Click Import and then Get Import Template.
  2. Insert the EAN next to the goods sold via EDI. Tip! It may be a good idea to freeze the columns with name and item number. This is typically done by selecting the columns, clicking View and then Freeze, but it is different depending on which calculator you have on your computer.
  3. Save the template locally on your computer.
  4. Go back into tracezilla and now click the Upload button. Select the file from your computer. It will now say Working… in the lower left corner. When the file has been loaded, the dialog window will say Success!
