EDI is cool again—thanks Forbes!

In his Forbes article, ARC Advisory Group analyst Steve Banker takes EDI ‘back to the future.’ In his view, EDI, technology that has been around for decades, is rapidly evolving and has become “cool” again because more and more companies are engaging in digital transformations.

This is nothing new to us here at TrueCommerce, as we have spent the past two decades empowering organisations to improve internal processes and grow their businesses through EDI and our global trading partner network. 

Modern businesses are under increasing pressure to digitise their entire operation including their trading with a diverse set of customers and suppliers. In many cases, it’s this diversity of the supply chain that strengthens a business but it can also complicate a move towards digitization. This is where modern providers like TrueCommerce have innovated their offering to provide a more robust solution suitable for all supply chain profiles.

Electronic trading hasn’t just been confined to the traditional retailer and supplier relationship either, many of these businesses are now harnessing online marketplaces to sell direct to consumers which in many cases adds another resource intensive workflow. TrueCommerce have worked to help these organisations do business in every direction without the additional administration often associated with these channels.

So in 2019, EDI is definitely cool again!
