EDI

Moving Your Data Exchange into the 21st Century

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) allows one business or department within a company to send information to another electronically rather than through paper or hard copy. EDI replaces postal mail, fax, and email. While email is also an electronic approach, the documents exchanged via email must still be handled by people rather than computers. Having people involved slows down the processing of the documents and introduces errors. Instead, EDI documents can flow straight through to the appropriate application on the receiver’s computer (e.g., the Order Management System) and processing can begin immediately. It has become an indispensable part of doing business, yet the process of digitization can cost even the most established companies unnecessary time and money. M.A.P. provides streamlined, cost-effective EDI integration and implementation.
