EDI is pure efficiency
For the majority of companies, data traffic with other branches, companies, suppliers and customers is crucial. Purchase orders, invoices, transmission reports, import and export notifications, consignment notes, transfers, design specifications and, for example, health insurance claims. So is is staggering that so much of this communication is still done on physical, paper documents, particularly in an era when the buzzwords are faster, more efficient, cheaper and better. Using the paperless, digital highway is the logical solution. Despite this, many companies still traditionally communicate using paper documents, even though the advantages of EDI, or Electronic Data Interchange, are apparent and numerous.
