DARWIN is a complete B2B order processing solution for small to medium size companies. It allows suppliers to receive electronic orders from their trading partners and send back despatch advices (ASNs), invoices and all the necessary information for the goods to be received by the trading partner.
DARWIN is also available as a hosted solution that removes the need for you to install any software at your premises. All you need is an Internet connection and we'll take care of the rest. Look at our Web EDI solution for more information.
“My despatch personnel are too busy to learn a complex computer system put together by people who have no knowledge of the industry we are in. DARWIN is quick and easy, allowing them to do their job quickly and efficiently.”

Despatch Advice / ASN Creation
DARWIN creates despatch advices / ASNs in the designated format of your trading partners using the information contained in your orders. You simply select an order and despatch it, and all the packaging information is automatically created for you by DARWIN based on business logic that you pre-configured. There is no need to continuously re-key packaging information every time you create a despatch.
DARWIN lets you conduct business with multiple trading partners using a single, consistent user interface. Rather than using a variety of different web based systems for each trading partner, with different interfaces and varying levels of support, DARWIN lets you use a single, consistent interface to trade with your trading partners.
Preconfigured Trading Partners
DARWIN is preconfigured to work with lots of trading partners in the retail and automotive sectors. All the message definitions for each trading partner are preconfigured, along with all the known packaging, EDI codes, plant locations and reports required for a successful business relationship with your trading partners. This removes the need to manually type such information into the system.
DARWIN is available in a number of languages besides English. If your language isn't included here and you'd like to see it included, please let us know. The following languages are supported by DARWIN (although other languages are available by request):
Integration and MMOG/LE Compliance
For larger companies, DARWIN lets you integrate with your ERP, Accounting or other internal systems to avoid manually re-keying business documents.Integration is via raw EDI, XML or CSV files, with data able to be both imported and exported. Despatch & Invoice documents can be both imported and exported; Forecasts and Orders can only be exported.
The MMOG/LE (Materials Management Operations Guidelines / Logistics Evaluation) process adopted by the automotive industry requires that suppliers must be able to receive electronic planning and shipping information and to integrate the information to an internal system to avoid the re-keying of data.
