EDI

Electronic business messaging

Making your supply chain transactions more
efficient with Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is electronic business messaging – an electronic alternative to paper-based transactions like orders and invoices.

Instead of generating your order or invoice and emailing it – or printing and mailing it – it’s sent automatically.

Because data is fed directly into your business systems, EDI reduces manual errors. It can also save you money and speed up communications, to deliver efficiencies throughout your supply chain.

Our EDI standards provide the common language that makes it possible for different businesses’ systems to communicate with each other.
