What is EDI?
EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is a way of enabling different systems to talk to each other and exchange business documents electronically, such as purchase orders, sales orders, shipping notices, invoices and more. This is particularly helpful for wholesale distributors, manufacturing companies, and other businesses with high transaction volumes.
If you’re supplying products to large retailers, they may already have requirements to use their electronic systems. Without an EDI integration, this can mean large volumes of rekeying information manually from your own system into a secondary customer system.
