At A Glance: EDI

The exchange of information between companies and organizations is an important aspect of business in the modern age. Problematically, large amounts of information and data oftentimes need to be passed between several different companies or users, and frequently these users may not be in the same country. For this purpose, a strict set of formatting standards has been developed and used over the last 30 years to help reduce the burden on companies to process and store this data. Electronic data interchange (EDI) differs from standard electronic communication in that the data is formatted to specific standards and transmitted from the originator to the receiver without human interaction. The benefits of EDI include reduced costs and more efficient business communications.

EDI specialists and consultants are those professionals who have experience with automated business systems like warehouse inventory or shipping standards, and a deep knowledge of the different EDI standards currently available. An EDI specialist or consultant can help you determine which aspects of your business can benefit from the implementation of EDI, and help you select the EDI standard that most effectively meets your needs. Because an EDI system, by definition, only relies on computer interfacing, an EDI specialist or consultant is a cost-effective means to apply these techniques for your business. The integration and application of an EDI system through the guidance and expertise of an EDI specialist and consultant can help optimize any automated business communication needs you may have.
