EDI, or electronic data interchange, is a process that was designed for convenience and efficiency. The automated transfer of data and documents between business partners has greatly helped retail logistics around the world today. Unfortunately, the process may not seem so simple for businesses setting up their EDI practices.
Mapping, translating, and converting data and documents can be extra work when you have a business to run. You’ll have to dedicate time and workers to EDI tasks when these resources can be used for other important tasks.
