Why EDI – An overview?
Each business being an independently operating organization, most of them use different ERP or Business management Software tools either Web / Cloud-based ERP or Traditional desktop based Software.
Also, there is always a key need for Business transactions ( eg. Purchase Orders, Invoices & Bills, Delivery Documents ) to be communicated to the business partners, which usually is done using file attachments with a communication channel as an Email. But this is less efficient when the exchange of such business records or documents is very frequent as every time it is exchanged – the data entry is needed to be done into the Other business ERP system.
EDI is the broad concept – which evolved as the de-facto standard, to structure the information format in specific ASCII format so that it can be exported from ERP system 1 and can be Imported and Parsed by ERP System 2.
The Core idea here is to optimize the Information exchange in an automated way – with the least human interventions.
Electronic Data Interchange(EDI)
EDI allows exchange of business documents digitally in standard formatting among multiple business partners and sending information to customers. About 80-90 percent of business traffic is being done by EDI and is increasing tremendously.
