BARD will continue to expand our e-commerce capabilities to provide item master updates, contract notification, advance ship notifications, and other features that will continue to add value to e-commerce.
- Connect via GHX (Global Healthcare Exchange)
This is BARD’s preferred solution as it provides our customers with a single connection point for greater automation and order visibility with extensive reporting tools.
- Direct EDI Connection
If an evaluation of GHX results in the need for another solution, BARD can accommodate a direct EDI set up once a business justification has been completed. We support AS2 and secure FTP communications protocol using ANSI x12 version 4010. We will need a customer technical resource assigned to work with our Corp EDI team regarding special EDI requirements and testing.
Each option above includes personalized service from a seasoned BARD representative to assist in making the transition to electronic as seamless as possible. This includes a single point of contact to determine BARD ship-to-account numbers, cleaning up your vendor and item master files, and post production utilization follow-up.
