Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the process of sending and receiving electronic business documents between companies, securely. In 2019, hundreds of thousands of companies use EDI as a means of improving their internal business processing efficiency with their supply chain partners. Many companies require their business partners to have EDI capability and to be compliant with EDI standards.
Today EDI integration is critical to meeting customer demands, improving employee efficiency, and streamlining the delivery of goods and services. If your organization is not currently using EDI, you are behind. And, why wouldn’t a business use EDI?
The fact is, EDI solutions are designed to add security to your business by allowing only strict access to data by authorized users. EDI also allows companies to share data securely across many communication protocols and security standards, resulting in the ability to ensure compliance with mandates in global business. Not only does this protect proprietary business information, it also speeds up the process of sharing necessary company documents in order to do business.
Is EDI Affordable?
By choosing to add EDI to your business, companies are then able to execute workflows that reduce costs, reduce processing error rates and increase the ability to complete business transactions for a fraction of the cost related to manual transmissions. This is in part due to eliminating the need for printing, reproduction, storage, postage and more. A streamlined documentation process helps global organizations comply with EDI standards, which in turn allows companies to avoid fines due to SLA violations and delays.
