Business software vendor Epicor Software Corp. said Tuesday it has acquired the electronic data interchange (EDI) solution provider 1 EDI Source Inc. in an effort to expand its portfolio of platforms allowing trading partners to exchange business data.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Austin, Texas-based Epicor provides industry-specific software for the manufacturing, distribution, retail, and service industry sectors. The firm's logistics products include EDI, supply chain management, enterprise resource planning (ERP), and warehouse management software.

Located in Solon, Ohio, 1 EDI Source says it offers cloud and on-premise solutions supporting the delivery of secure and EDI-compliant transactional documents between trading partners directly to ERP systems and supply-chain applications.

Adding 1 EDI Source to the Epicor product portfolio provides a single, comprehensive EDI platform delivered either as a standalone offering or a fully managed service, Epicor said. Users can control their EDI processes to include trading partner set-up and integration, translation and mapping, partner connectivity, transaction management, and data visibility, the company said.

"Bringing in 1 EDI Source to join our team will strengthen the Epicor Business Services portfolio and continue to support our mission to become the cloud vendor of choice in the markets we serve," Epicor's chief product and technology officer, Himanshu Palsule, said in a release. "1 EDI Source will enable our customers to easily standardize EDI transactions and create significant opportunity to integrate new solutions into existing ERP platforms."
