Electronic data interchange, or EDI, provides major value by lowering costs while bolstering speed, accuracy, and efficiency. Moving from a paper-based exchange of business documents to one that is electronic enables businesses to increase processing speed, reduce errors, and enhance relationships with partners.

Embracing EDI enables your company to quickly and efficiently transfer business documents with suppliers and customers in an organized and standardized way that supports the industry’s manufacturing processes. Examples include offering visibility of inventory levels and notifying clients of when shipments are due to arrive at the production line. This enhanced level of communication can positively impact your supplier rating, maintain shipment frequency, and improve quality, all of which help improve customer satisfaction.
