  tcedi, The Solution for Kmart Softline's individual store purchase order submission, with release number (DC) invoice remittance.
  • tcedi meets all the Vendor Compliance requirements of Kmart Softlines and Hardlines. This includes not only the electronic receipt of Purchase Orders, but the translation of those orders into tcedi, which allows you to generate barcoded UCC128 shipping labels, ASNs and invoices.
  • Because the data loaded into tcedi is from the actual EDI purchase order, this allows you to use the actual purchase order data to generate the shipping labels without any re-keying (point and key) and generate the ASNs and invoices with minimum effort.
  • Kmart Softlines has a unique System, where Kmart sends you individual EDI purchase orders for each store. You are required to generate shipping labels and EDI Invoices (this is used as the ASN) for each individual EDI purchase order. However, when Kmart pays the Invoices it is by the rollup of the purchase orders by their Release Number, which corresponds to the stores that will be supplied by a particular Distribution Center.
    • Example: If Kmart sends 200 EDI store purchase orders with 4 release numbers. These 4 release numbers are the four distribution centers that will be shipping the product to the individual stores. What happens is, you ship the product to the distribution center, then distribution center ships the product to the store. In the process, you have to generate 200 shipping labels as well as 200 Invoices (the invoices are used as the ASN). When Kmart pays these invoices it is by release number and there will be only 4 payment remittances.
  • tcedi has a special algorithm for Kmart Softline's Purchase Orders. Using tcedi, you can roll your purchase orders up to the Release Number Level, so now, you only have to enter the Composite Order (Purchase Orders rollup at the Release Level) in your Sales Order Entry System. tcedi will now function as your sub-ledger for your Sales Orders entry system. The Detail for Composite Order (the individual EDI store purchase orders) is kept in tcedi.
  • When you go to ship the orders, you select the composite order then enter the shipping information, then you validate the quantities and total invoices amount and tcedi will invoice each individual purchase order as required. When Kmart pays these invoices by their release number, you will be able to match their invoice with your composite order.
  • This is a very complex system, if you need more information, please email Tatum Consulting at tcedi@tatumconsulting.com
