What Is Electronic Data Exchange?
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the common format for transacting documents from Business A to Business B. These documents include, but are not limited to, purchase orders (e.g., EDI 850), invoices (e.g., EDI 810), inventory levels (e.g., EDI 846) and advanced shipping notices (e.g., EDI 856). When these documents are exchanged, between the two companies, an EDI solution automates the translation of the data into a standardized EDI format. EDI solutions like ours integrate with your ERP and back-end systems to automatically access and use certain information, or to populate your system with key information that is vital to your business.
