Electronic data interchange (EDI) refers to transaction of business documents in a standard electronic format between business partners. For instance, common documents that are exchanged with the help of EDI are invoices, advance ship notices, and purchase orders. However, there are several other documents such as inventory documents, bill of lading, customs documents, payment documents, and shipping status documents. Electronic data interchange helps organizations to standardize the interchange of data between applications across the supply chain. This procedure guarantees that business-critical data is sent on time. Electronic data interchange replaces the mail preparation and handling associated with the traditional business communication. However, EDI helps to standardize the information communicated in business documents, which makes it a paperless exchange.
EDI solutions help organizations increase performance which is one of the key factors expected to drive the global electronic data interchange (EDI) market during the forecast period. Fast processing of accurate EDI documents leads to fewer cancelled orders, less repeated work, and fewer stock-outs. Additionally, shortening the order process and delivery times mean that organizations can reduce their inventory levels. However, limitations of electronic data interchange (EDI) include high cost and time-consuming deployment. Moreover, EDI needs constant maintenance since the business depends on it. A large number of organizations consider EDI to have too many standards. This restricts smaller businesses from dealing with larger organizations that use an updated version of document standard.
