Electronic Data Interchange

About

EDI or Electronic Data Interchange allows the exchange of standardized documents between computer systems of those involved in a business relationship.

edi - Electronic Data Interchange

Orders, delivery notes, invoices, inventory, price catalogs, etc.., can be exchanged electronically between different partners through the use of a shared language that allows different information systems to interact directly with each other. 

EDICOM’s technical solutions allow automatic processing of these exchanges through their ability to interact with each client’s internal computer systems, or ERP. That way orders, invoices or other transactions can be processed automatically without human interaction.

This integration capability makes EDI messages the best option to streamline most administrative and management tasks. Efficiencies are realized by reducing processing times, increased security and confidentiality, and cost reduction.

EDI: What do we need?

Standard Language:
Interchanging electronic information requires a standardized language shared by sender and receiver to structure the messages. There are different standards, such as X12, EDIFACT, XML…

EDI software:
Sender and receiver must have an EDI solution to construct and manage the messages according to the standard in which the interchanges are to take place.

Communications Network:
EDI interchanges call for secure communications systems adapted to the peculiarities of this type of transaction. There are different options available, although the most widespread are VANs or Value Added Networks. These are private communications networks with high levels of security, control and monitoring that guarantee the correct sending and reception of the different messages.
