Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) standardizes the transmission of electronic data between business partners and is required by a growing number of companies. EDI automates and ensures accurate order entry and tracking when it comes to items like invoices and purchase orders.
When a company needs to accept and match another company’s EDI platform, they can find that doing so is very daunting, time consuming and costly. It requires:
● The purchase of the EDI software
● Maintenance of the software
● Hosting the software on company servers or in the cloud
● Staffing it with company employees
● Managing the day-to-day transactions
“Somebody not only has to develop those things, but they have to maintain them. They have to make sure that the infrastructure’s going and that becomes increasingly costly both for the talent that you have to have within your organization as well as the infrastructure that you have to have,” said JT McGibbon, Vice President and General Manager at Atadex. “If you cannot do EDI right away, you’re going to have a tremendous lost opportunity cost. It could be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
