About Base2 EDI

DiCentral’s Base2 provides fast, efficient communication for your shipping, purchasing, and planning needs. It is the culmination of years of EDI experience. Our software is highly reliable and was one of the first EDI packages to be approved by both Honda of America (X12) and General Motors (EDIFACT). We support the EDI and bar code labeling requirements of many companies, including Honda, Ford, GM, Subaru, Chrysler, Nissan, Toyota, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Volvo, Caterpillar, and Harley-Davidson. For more information about why you should choose Base2, please contact us as we’d be happy to speak with you.

Base2 differs from other EDI packages in several crucial ways:

It’s a snap to use. Screens are simple and logical, consistent no matter what Trading Partner you’re working with, and users do not re-key data into other Base2 modules.

When we install Base2 for you, it’s virtually ready-to-go out of the box. Base2 requires no user mapping, no templates and no programming on your end.

Our technical support is unparalleled in the industry. We are responsive, accurate, and friendly.

We will walk you through successful testing with your Trading Partners.
