EDI / Electronic data interchange - What is EDI?

What is EDI?

TrueCommerce provides a range of EDI solutions to meet the requirements of small, emerging, mid-market and enterprise businesses

Electronic Data Interchange – or EDI – is the secure, automated exchange of electronic documents, such as purchase orders, invoices and delivery notes, between businesses or trading partners using a standardised format that allows different computer systems to communicate with each other.

There are many benefits of EDI for all businesses large, medium and small operating in diverse sectors including retail, food, logistics, distribution, construction, manufacturing and many more.

EDI is now the standard way in which most larger organisations trade with their supply chain – and, as a result, suppliers of goods and services are at a real competitive advantage if they can trade electronically via EDI with their customers.

TrueCommerce’s comprehensive EDI Managed Service provides all of the elements required for a complete end-to-end EDI solution to meet the requirements of small, emerging, mid-market and enterprise businesses. These include:
  • A web-based EDI tool that translates your documents into the EDI format
  • EDI mapping to synchronise your computer system with your trading partner’s system
  • The EDI network that sends and receives electronic documents
  • Ongoing EDI support and maintenance services
A full range of support packages are available, tailored specifically for your requirements, to ensure that you maximise the benefits of TrueCommerce EDI.
