The use of EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) enables you to electronically exchange, centrally process and automate important business processes such as orders, deliveries, invoices and stock level queries between media, systems and business partners.
It is often no longer worthwhile for many companies to carry out this exchange themselves:
It is difficult to find and retain suitable EDI professionals for in-house operations
Own operation is associated with high fixed costs for hardware and software
Due to the technical dynamics and frequent changes in standards, in-house operation means a lot of effort
In-house operation is often accompanied by manual processes that are prone to errors.
With EDI aaS, you master all these challenges faster, cheaper and more reliably thanks to digitization and automation. This also makes your customers and suppliers even more satisfied.
