Managed IT Services
From endless map updates and spec changes to errors and testing, management of EDI operations can be complicated and time-consuming. Free yourself from the day-to-day trials and tribulations of maintaining an Electronic Data Interchange system with managed services from Effective Data. Monitoring and managing business-to-business integration environment requires continuous investments in specialized technologies and trained professionals. They typically need to integrate with both legacy and next-generation technologies across a comprehensive partner ecosystem.
Managed services from Effective Data shield you from business-to-business integration environment management complexities, allowing you to focus on core business activities. Our team of experts has extensive EDI experience, and they respond to any issues that arise.
EDI is essential to the function of most companies. Without EDI, or with a poorly functioning system, business growth suffers. In a do-it-yourself or in-house setup, you and your staff are responsible for providing the translation hardware and software, communication network management, mapping, IT, and technical support. These are all the major components necessary for EDI to take place between you and your customers.
That’s just the starting point, however. You may have to help business partners implement the system at their end, and possibly even build it for them. You’ll have to do this with each trading partner, and it will continue as your trading community evolves, grows, and changes.
To avoid these exhaustive and costly tasks that, in most cases, are not integral to core business functions, many companies ultimately decide to utilize a third-party or outsourced provider for EDI system monitoring, management, and upkeep.
