Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
We’ve all heard that good communication is the foundation of a healthy relationship and nowhere is that more true than between links in a temperature-controlled supply chain.
When it comes to improving communication with their partners, businesses have long turned to EDI. And despite predictions to the contrary, rather than being replaced by newer methods, EDI has continued its role as the workhorse of B2B connectivty — and with good reason — because it works.
Automating order processing and the transmission of inventory adjustments means less data entry, shorter order cycle times, reduced order issues, fewer inventory discrepancies and more accurate fulfillment.
While EDI remains the most popular method for the computer-to-computer interchange of structured business data, it’s far from the only option. Our in-house team regularly works with partners to implement a variety of EDI-like solutions, using an array of common file formats and modes of transmission.
