Tianjin Lishen Battery Co. Integrates with Top International Company’s AS2 EDI using RSSBus Connect





Tianjin Lishen Battery Co., Ltd., founded in 1997, is a joint-stock high-tech company with core intellectual property rights and technology research, production and operation of lithium-ion batteries.

Tianjin Lishen has been using the K/3 ERP system for many years and has gradually improved it over time to handle self-processing of internal business.

As a key supplier of batteries to companies worldwide, a big part of success for Tianjin Lishen is their ability to mesh seamlessly with their customers’ supply chains and supply chain management systems, including automations.

The Challenge: EDI Docking for an Enterprise Customer

Tianjin Lishen’s customer required suppliers, including Tianjin Lishen, to support their purchasing process and supply chain automation through EDI docking. The customer uses the AS2 protocol for secure transmission of files, purchase orders and other supply management messages.

To do business with this customer, a significant revenue opportunity, Tianjin Lishen needed to:

  • Strictly meet their requirements for safe, secure file transmissions
  • Demonstrate verifiable security by attaining a Drummond Certificate
  • Support PKI, SSL security & S/MIME encryption

To meet their customer’s requirements, Tianjin Lishen needed certified AS2 capabilities and EDI messaging support that could be quickly integrated into the use of Lishen’s Kingdee K/3ERP System. Tianjin Lishen looked for a solution that would meet all key requirements and be easy to install, configure, manage and integrate.

The Solution: Streamlining Purchasing with AS2

Tianjin Lishen selected RSSBus Connect to help them integrate their Kingdee K/3 ERP software with their customer's EDI. They chose RSSBus due to its high-performance, reliability and scalability in simplifying the process of producing, consuming and integrating data.

Based on the existing ERP system, three modules of EDI file transfer, file parsing and business system integration were added. In changing the existing financial accounting process, RSSBus Connect is used to:

  • Meet the customer's EDI direct connection requirements
  • Standardize business processes
  • Improve daily work efficiency
  • Reduce risks in the information transmission process
  • And improve enterprise management

The specific EDI documents sent between Tianjin Lishen and their customer are as follows:

  • Purchase Order — EDI 850
  • Order modification — EDI 860 (Purchase Order Change Request)
  • Receipt Confirmation — EDI 846 (Inventory Inquiry/Advice)
  • Function confirmation — EDI 997 (Functional Acknowledgements)

The EDI documents that their customer receives from suppliers are:

  • Order Confirmation — EDI 855 (Purchase Order Acknowledgment)
  • Shipping Notice — EDI 856 (Advanced Shipping Notice)
  • Ticket — EDI 810 (Invoice)
  • Function confirmation — EDI 997 (Functional Acknowledgements)

To complete the project, a local integration partner worked directly with Tianjin Lishen and delivered a smooth, hassle-free integration.

The Results: Efficient Data Parsing, a Satisfied Customer and Money Saved

With RSSBus Connect, EDI is seamlessly integrated with Tianjin Lishen’s Kingdee K/3 ERP system, providing secure, efficient and reliable integration with Tianjin Lishen’s customer.

Through the successful installation of the AS2 connector and the deployment of EDI translation & messaging, RSSBus delivers:

  • Parsing of customer EDI file data into the intermediate database for ERP system operation and management
  • Reliable, standardized EDI file transmission
  • Improved processing efficiency in the Tianjin Lishen business unit
  • Fewer bottlenecks on the system, allowing it to handle the full operational workload

"The implementation of the EDI system meets the requirements of the company for large customers. It increased the data efficiency of our business department and reduced the manual operation of system data."
