The MapForce data mapping tool is a visual EDI translator that lets you convert EDI to other prevalent data formats, as well as to other EDI formats. Common EDI translation includes:
Full support for a wide range of EDI formats in MapForce allows you to use any of the hundreds of messages and transaction sets covered by these standards in your mapping design. You can even map from EDI to EDI, to, for example, convert EDIFACT files to an X12 format for your global business partners. You can also take advantage of MapForce's XML support to update your legacy HL7 v2.x messages to version 3.
MapForce supports EDI mapping for:
Because users often need to customize the EDIFACT, X12, HL7, HIPAA X12, PADIS, TRADACOMS, and SWIFT messages according to specific implementation requirements, MapForce includes a user-friendly EDI configuration file format that allows you to add new transactions or modify and enhance existing messages quickly and easily.
Once you've specified the data sources for your EDI data mapping, MapForce inserts them in your project as graphical components. Drag and drop to map data fields, insert data processing functions, and even build your own with the visual function builder.
MapForce supports any-to-many data mapping as well as chained mappings.
MapForce ships with built-in support for the most recent EDI configuration files, and you can download and utilize previous message formats for previous years for free. The links below provide information about the various versions of each supported EDI format.
Once your EDI translation is complete, MapForce will convert the data so you can view and save results instantly. More often, it's practical to automate EDI mapping, and MapForce offers royalty free program code generation, as well as high-performance automation via MapForce Server.
