EDI promotes great competitive advantages for businesses
EDI enables company commercial, purchasing and administration departments to operate more dynamically and efficiently.
EDICOM develops “Electronic Data Interchange” based solutions - technology allowing integration of your business documents with your ERP or In-house Management System. The higher the number of trading partners (customers, suppliers, logistic operators, etc.) and EDI transactions exchanged, the more benefits there are to be gained.
In-house, companies have IT management systems that allow them to run their commercial and logistic services in a customized manner, tailored to their business type and communication needs. Externally, companies need to extend their commercial communication and logistics platforms to connect with the maximum number of trading partners.
It is currently possible to set up these connections by rolling out EDI solutions (Electronic Data Interchange) to link the in-house management systems of manufacturers and distributors, opening up dynamic and secure electronic business communities known as B2B.
EDI is based on a combination of software and secure and private communication networks for the exchange of standardized documents between the IT systems of the parties in a trade relation.
The standardized nature of these documents is the main difference between EDI and other information exchanging systems: Use of a common programming language among different partners enables them to exchange business messages such as orders, despatch advices, invoices, etc.
Rolling out an EDI solution in a company brings great competitive advantages:
Communications integrated with companies’ in-house IT systems.
Business transactions processed automatically.
Companies’ administrative, management and logistics processes optimized.
Faster sales growth times in goods receipt and delivery.
Enhanced security and confidentiality in your communications.
Economic costs kept down, since all the company’s communication processes are computerized.
Edicom, as a technological service provider for data integration in B2B e-commerce frameworks, develops software customized in line with users’ needs to ensure profitable and efficient EDI solutions.
