Supply Chain Integration
The main goal of any supply chain integration plan needs to focus on performance; Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is used by businesses to automate the exchange of business documents to improve collaboration with their trading partners. Using EDI within your Supply Chain can vastly improve performance; key reasons are listed below. It replaces the traditional exchange methods of paper, fax and email. You can use EDI to exchange information and business documents with:
Government and financial institutions
And any other kind of trading partner or business
The benefits of using EDI over traditional methods are well documented. Here are the top three reasons why businesses first adopt EDI:
Avoid manual intervention and document rekeying – significantly reduced errors and administration overheads
Improved lead times and stockholding – fast document exchange enables advance planning and forecasting, more right first time deliveries and thus lower stockholding
Eliminate paper – no lost documents, postage costs and printing costs
All of these reasons are good examples of why the integration of EDI throughout your supply chain can help to vastly improve your business processes.
We realise that no two supply chain connections are the same, and our solutions are designed to suit small, medium and large organisations, and support connections between any two or more businesses.
