Youredi, an integration platform-as-a-service, provides adapter technologies for establishing connections between different carriers in various modes to facilitate direct transactions between shipment and third party logistics companies with their customers. These connections established in the cloud, save companies the trouble of managing integrations and changes at their premises. The ability of the platform enables work with multiple data formats such as the old (EDI) and new (JSON and XML) and translate it into the format requested by users is much sought after. “The translation feature is enabled by libraries built into the platform and provides a cost-effective integration solution to combat disparate data formats used by different carriers and suppliers. This also gives clients the required speed and flexibility to remain competitive,” says Baxter.
Youredi provides support for processing data from IoT and M2M systems that may be a part of the supply chain.
The biggest benefit we bring is the automatic cleaning of data using M2M, IoT, and robotics to streamline data through different parts in the supply chain
The data translation features of Youredi are leveraged by several firms, focusing on major ocean shipments to provide real-time information on containers and their estimated time of arrival, among other parameters. The data pertaining to these parameters is obtained in the EDI format and converted into newer formats like XML by Youredi. Further, clients also get to enrich the data within their own transport management systems, as the platform automatically pulls and converts the EDI data and feeds it back through the gateway. Currently, Youredi is processing several thousand transactions for companies in the airline cargo sector as well, to translate data into the format necessary for their systems—eliminating the overheads associated with time and efforts in data processing.
The feature-rich Youredi platform has paved the way for the company to be recognized by Gartner on multiple occasions. Baxter further intends to broaden the scope of Youredi by entering the retail, transport, and logistics segments as well. “To help customers with the platform better, we also provide 24/7 global support,” states Baxter. The company has also initiated talks with a global retailer to build an optimized and integrated supply chain. Striding forward, Youredi is focused on connecting different marketplaces across verticals to raise the standards of data processing and interchange.
