EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is the fully automated data exchange of business documents between among companies. The sender initiates the transmission via EDI system, the receiver gets the documents in the format needed. The documents do not have to be manually formatted.
Digital Exchange of Business Documents
The use of EDI brings many advantages. Documents are passed at high speed. The EDI tool takes care of the document formatting, this way the sender can send any format and does not have to mind the format favored by the receiver’s system. This advantage lowers the error ratio and eliminates expensive costs for postage, paper and printouts. The exchange via EDI saves a lot of time – documents reach their destination within seconds. The receiver also benefits from the use of EDI; he saves time and avoids mistakes. The receiver does not have to scan documents or manually enter them into the system, via EDI they are automatically managed and saved.
In the content of EDI the terms EDIFACT and other transmission formats are used. These formats are common in many business sectors and are used for the EDI systems. By using new technologies such as XML and the further development of the ERP systems, the process atomization is still handled via the digital exchange of business documents which are converted into predefined data formats.
