EDI Everyday

Transform your day with EDI automation by ED

When you first opened up shop, processing documentation wasn’t that big of a task, but something significant happened: business is booming. But now your monthly document volume is growing and processing them through your current process is eating up vital employee hours better spent on other tasks.

To add insult to injury, the more documentation (orders, changes, etc.) that must be processed by hand, the higher the likelihood for unexpected errors. All it takes is a couple of decimals in the wrong place or incorrectly keyed quantities, and everyone is searching for answers.

What happens when the person processing your documents gets sick or goes on vacation? Do you have a backup plan in place?

While the documents pile up important transactions may be missed and trading partnerships could be put in jeopardy.

EDI automation by ED

There’s a certain point in a business’s growth trajectory where automation just becomes necessary. No longer a “nice to have” but a “must-have”.

Rather than having one of your employees spend days reconciling all the previous week’s invoices, purchase orders, and shipping documents, you could integrate your ERP or WMS and more into an EDI solution. Doing so allows for automatic process documentation, quicker and more accurately than doing it by hand.

The only time human eyes need to review documentation is if something doesn’t match up, such as different quantities between a purchase order and an invoice. Incorrect transactions are flagged review and a staff member can easily track down the issue to correct the problem.

Time spent on processing documentation can be reduced from a day-long activity by several people to a few hours or less by a single person. EDI automation breaks down data silos and eliminate bottlenecks that prevent your business from achieving its full potential.
