EDI communication

i‑effect® offers a variety of different communication modules supporting different protocols for the communication of EDI messages. The choice of a specific communication protocol depends largely on you and your partners and/or industry standards.

EDI Conversion

The EDI converter modules of i‑effect® enable you to convert data from your in-house system (e.g. ERP) into a standardized data format or to write incoming data from this format into your internal application programs.

Data Conversion

Rapid database exports directly into office and table formats as well as spool conversion with the world market leader in technology.

Signature & Encryption

i‑effect® provides you with the necessary modules to equip your electronic business processes with special transmission and information security.


You can also use our extensions to enhance your processes. For example, you can use the *ZIP module to compress data natively on IBM i. With the free graphical administration interface *WEBCONTROL you keep track of all processes that take place in i‑effect®.


Not only products, but also processes must be constantly developed further. With the i‑effect® module *SERVER you can automate all your i‑effect® functional sequences or selected workflows for time-controlled as well as defined IBM Power-Systems events.
