To facilitate a fast and cost effective E-Business solution with our non-EDI capable partners, we have teamed with Opentext (formerly Easylink) and SPS Commerce to provide Web-enabled EDI. By signing up with any of these companies, you will be able to electronically exchange the required documents using an Internet browser.

Best Buy understands that system capabilities vary with each of our vendors and, as a result, we are excited to offer an alternative designed for vendors who have not developed in-house electronic commerce solutions, such as EDI. Vendors will subscribe to this on-line service by registering with Opentext (formerly Easylink), our partner in this initiative.
