Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

Electronic Data Interchange is a generic term for computer-to-computer transmission. EDI is the transmission, in a standard syntax, of unambiguous information of business or strategic significance between computers of independent organizations in many different industries. EDI users do not have to change their internal databases. EDI is the common language” used to get information from one computer system to another. Users must translate this information to or from their own computer systems, but this translation software has to be prepared only once. ProcessPro software’s EDI application can provide this translation.

It is becoming more common for corporations to only conduct business with companies that utilize an EDI system. Companies that have opted to use this tool are finding that they are able to work with others that they have never been able to work with in the past. This opens the doors to new possibilities and new revenues for growing companies.

There are several benefits to utilizing EDI:

  • Transaction accuracy
  • Save time and money with no re-keying of data entry
  • Improve customer service
  • Automatic electronic generation of Purchase Orders, Sales Orders, and more

ProcessPro’s EDI application will automatically generate all appropriate documents to fulfill order requirements from start to finish. ProcessPro’s EDI manages the most common transaction sets transmitted between companies making it the most effective tool for exchanging information between trading partners.
