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.
