Approximately 42% companies that do not use EDI, or use only a customer web portals, use post for exchanging documents. This is according to a survey of companies conducted this year for leading EDI company, Data Interchange, who also found that 27% use fax and 28% use a customer web portal. Email is the most popular method at 67%.
Almost 88% of EDI users have an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system, a MRP (Materials Resource Planning) system or other planning system, according to a survey of companies conducted this year by leading EDI company, Data Interchange. While the vast majority can import and export messages – which one would expect of a modern ERP – the survey reveals a small but significant number of companies that can’t. 
Over 30% of companies that use EDI do not use a VAN (Value Added Network) provider and are therefore failing to reap the benefits from outsourcing the management of EDI. This was a finding of a survey of companies conducted this year by leading EDI company, Data Interchange. It also found that 30% of respondents had multiple direct connections to VAN providers, while almost 40% of companies had a single, direct connection to a VAN provider.

Industry 4.0 is much in the news: more importantly, it is also the destination for large scale investment by major manufacturing companies and supply chains around the world, so this ‘new industrial revolution’ is apparently more than just hype.
The role of EDI (electronic data interchange) in reducing cost and error and accelerating transactions is widely understood, if less widely implemented. EDI as part of a risk management strategy in the supply chain is less appreciated, but as Industry 4.0, the much-vaunted ‘new industrial revolution’, starts to become a reality, EDI is going to become an even more important tool, although not necessarily in quite its present form.
Manufacturing and retail supply chains need to become ever more agile. Whether its delivery to the home or production line-side, expectations are of instant availability. On the other hand, a wider supply base and the ability of customers to specify individual preferences militate against the concept of a ‘standard’ product.
