One of the new technologies that plays an important role in many businesses today is Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), but EDI is not always exposed or exploited to bring the full benefits available to the business. EDI is a popular choice amongst many businesses who want to improve or replace manual paper-based processes. However, Integrated Management Solutions (Global) Ltd has found that those using, or considering using, EDI are only rarely able to fully exploit the capabilities or fully benefit from the potential value to their business
EDI replaces some of the use of traditional methods of business communication, such as telephone and fax, with electronic means of document transmission. Using computers to exchange electronically communication and documents has been shown to greatly decrease administrative costs.
ERP and EDI systems can work together to integrate all members of a business to the same communication and database system.
IMS has solid experience of assessing, implementing and integrating EDI at all stages of the ERP software cycle.
