Is your business EDI compliant? If you have any sort of interactions with trading partners, it should be. EDI has become a necessity in the modern world because of its ability to streamline supply chains. It facilitates easy communication between business partners and prevents human error from costing you time and money. However, for this exchange to occur, companies must share data in a way that is compatible with their trading partners’ EDI standards.
There is a set of worldwide EDI standards that dictate the format businesses receive EDI documents in. Your trading partners cannot receive your information correctly if you do not send it in the format they use. Recording your transaction information and converting it into the right EDI format can seem complex and daunting if you have no experience in the field. Large companies with enough experience may opt to do EDI in-house, but if you are a smaller company with no EDI experience, it might be worthwhile to hire an EDI expert. The right EDI provider can help you achieve EDI compliance without the hassle of training new employees and allocating funds to your own EDI program.
