The simple, low cost, easy to implement web EDI/supply chain solution for small to medium sized trading communities of suppliers, customers and sales forces.


The two biggest issues standing in the way of 100% EDI supply chain integration are those of COST and COMPLEXITY.


Advance Web Trader is designed to overcome these two problems by providing the trading hub with a tailored secure website into which it deposits orders for typically small to medium sized suppliers.


These suppliers can then utilise any standard PC with a web browser to access the website and download trading documents such as orders and remittance advices, whilst at the same time creating other trading documents such as invoices, or advance shipping notifications to their customer.

  • Cost

    This issue is overcome by the supplier not needing any specialist software and the use of the Web Trader system can be minimal depending on the wishes of the customer.

  • Complexity

    Is overcome very easily as the supplier only needs a PC and a web browser to access the secure website.

If your company has a trading community it would like to trade with electronically, gaining all the associated benefits, such as simplified trading processes and an improved, more responsive supply chain, then you should be talking to AdvanceFirst Technologies.
