RedTail Announces Integration of RedTail EDI with AccountMate 8.1 Software
New Enhanced Interface Provides End-to-End Automation for EDI Transactions for Suppliers and Distributors

WESTBOROUGH, Mass., – September 20, 2010 – RedTail Solutions, Inc., which delivers managed services for electronic data interchange (EDI) and global data synchronization (GDS) to manufacturers and distributors, today announced the availability of an enhanced Interface that is integrated with the newly released AccountMate, version 8.1, a popular mid-market accounting solution from AccountMate Software Corporation.

RedTail EDI, a managed EDI service, handles B2B ecommerce between suppliers using AccountMate 8.1 and their trading partners such as Walmart and The Home Depot. The seamless ERP to EDI integration enables efficient and accurate automated processing of large volumes of EDI transactions. As a result, RedTail and AccountMate customers are able to cut costs, improve efficiency, eliminate errors, and accelerate the order-to-cash cycle.

The RedTail EDI Interface to AccountMate, developed by Figtree Consulting, Inc., streamlines EDI operations. For example, EDI purchase orders are seamlessly moved to AccountMate sales orders. Once the items are shipped, information is passed to RedTail EDI to generate and transmit the EDI invoice to the trading partner. RedTail EDI for AccountMate 8.1 also provides an intuitive interface which simplifies work for order entry and billing clerks. Clear reporting offers straightforward tools for management oversight.

The interface was updated so that customers could take advantage of AccountMate’s enhanced credit limit control as well as many other new Version 8.1 features including:

  • Improved Audit Trail: configurable to give companies the flexibility to select the critical data they need to track without compromising on software performance.
  • Drill Down on Executive Summary Screen: makes it easy for authorized users to view details about the specific information they want to investigate.
