Channel Data Collection
DDS provides a comprehensive data processing service for collecting channel sales data. This information may include sales tracings, rebate or chargeback claims data, master data files, or group purchasing organization (GPO) membership roster files.
Our experienced team automates and tracks the receiving of data files on an hourly basis, and we provide tracking reports that will keep you informed of the status of data files being received and processed by DDS.
DDS can provide these services:
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) - DDS can provide full EDI mapping and translation services for EDI 867 and 844 documents. Our team will work with your existing service provider to create an inter-connect account or we can receive translated documents directly from your internal EDI department. DDS can host an ftp/sftp/https server location to support your data transfer requirements.
FTP • SFTP • HTTPS • AS2 - DDS provides support for all of the popular transfer protocols used today by most companies. We will manage the connection and create automated scripts to monitor folders on a scheduled basis.
Email Attachments - Most companies receive a majority of their sales transactions as attachments to email. DDS will set up a dedicated mail box to support your data collection needs, and then then implement advanced email attachment monitoring, removal and archiving of all source files. Files are received and processed on an hourly basis. A file status report is provided to our clients letting them know when documents are received, and if a distributor needs to be contacted if their paperwork is not received within the appropriate time.
