What is EDI? EDI stands for Electronic Data Interchange. Companies that do business with each other are called trading partners. EDI is used to exchange business documents in electronic format between these partners. For example, these documents include purchase orders, invoices, ASNs, BOL and more.
These standards are also called communications protocols. Also, there are several different versions for each standard. In fact, businesses must agree on the standard and version before exchanging EDI documents.
What are the Benefits of EDI?
EDI translator software is used to solve a variety of industry-specific issues. For instance, from Retail and Healthcare to Automotive, EDI has evolved to address complicated challenges.
