WHY AM I REQUIRED TO DO EDI WITH MY TRADING PARTNERS?

Thursday, April 23, 2015Global Administrator Most trading partners will require you to implement a solid EDI solution before they begin conducting business with you. This could be for a number of known reasons, but doing this will benefit your company as well.

Along with some operational improvements, you can expect to see some strategic improvements as well. Below are just a few you can expect to see:

Strategic:
  • Decreased operating costs
  • Improved cash and inventory cycles
  • Rapid integration of trading partners into business processes
Operational:
  • Invoices are sent out and in your partners in minutes
  • Increased security during message and transaction processing
  • Reduced data duplication, elimination of data errors
  • Reduced inventory levels
  • Reduced paper, postage and sorting activities

These reasons contribute directly to why a lot of major trading partners require customers and suppliers to conduct business via EDI. In a lot of situations, some companies won’t even enter business agreements without an agreement on an EDI solution.
