What is EDI? Let's keep this simple.
Wikipedia says the following about EDI:
"Electronic data interchange (EDI) is an electronic communication system that provides standards for exchanging data via any electronic means. EDI provides a technical basis for commercial "conversations" between two entities, either internal or external. EDI constitutes the entire electronic data interchange paradigm, including the transmission, message flow, document format, and software used to interpret the documents. EDI standards describe the rigorous format of electronic documents. Pioneered by the military in the 1950's EDI has come to be the standard for documentation communications such as Purchase Orders, Ship Notices, Invoicing and payment remittance to identify commonly used documents.
In the consumer goods, retail and healthcare supply chain markets the typical requirements for EDI use includes the following documents:
Purchase Orders - 850 record
Purchase Order Confirmation - 855 record
Advance Ship Notices - 856 record
Electronic Invoicing - 810 record
Remittance/Payments - 820 record
Functional Acknowledgements - 997 record
The electronic transmission of these documents accelerates the business processes while simultaneously reducing error prone data entry and increasing accuracy.
EDI - It is a benefit to business small and large & EDI IQ can assist in establishing and maintaining an efficient EDI process.
