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.

The options described above include personalized service from a seasoned Bard representative to assist in making the transition from “manual processing” to EDI/e-Commerce as seamless as possible. This includes a single point of contact to determine Bard ship-to-account numbers, cleaning up vendor and item master files, and post-production utilization follow-up.
