BDN Plugin

Jump to: navigation, search

The BDN plugin allows for the communication of information between eoStar and the Beverage Data Network (BDN). The BDN is an integrated system that collects product movement data for tracking and information management. Data is exported at the close of each month, but no later than the fifth working day of the following month. This data includes all sales, transfer, and product information for the distributor, suppliers, and chains. For more information on BDN, see BDN website.

When building an export file within the BDN interface, it is important to note that legacy data will not be included. BDN will scan and include data that as far back as you have been using eoStar.

For information on how to setup BDN within eoStar, see Setup: BDN Plugin. For additional information on the specifications of BDN, see Specs: BDN Wholesaler Files.
