The absence of real EDI norms that dictate a universal format is one reason why APIs have not substituted EDI when it comes to B2B-type data transactions. APIs can be customized to do just about anything, which means that developers can do a wide range of things to meet the needs of the business.

Perks of Integrated EDI Solutions for your Business

  • EDI has lots of benefits as it would give you a competitive advantage, because EDI is no longer the fresh child in the block. As most logistics businesses use EDI, you need to look for a fresh angle. We believe that the key to doing better than your rivalry can be this fresh angle. Frankly, the secret lies in the creation of a cooperative benefit. By enhancing your EDI Integration Solution, you will be able to collaborate better with your trading partners–or perhaps even with your inner agencies around the world.
  • Just believe about it for a minute from your own view. It's a lot nicer for you to work with an extremely responsive partner or customer than with someone who isn't that sensitive.
  • We think that if you are looking to justify your investment in EDI integration, it is rather hard at the beginning to do but in the long term, it would help in a qualitative way.
  • When you introduce integrations internally, you will be able to save a substantial quantity of time (maybe you will also be able to reduce your labor costs). You will have more time to concentrate on polishing your facilities, instead of your EDI procedures, so that you can improve your day-to-day activities and eliminate administrative overheads.
  • You will increase your responsiveness to your clients, business associates and stakeholders, so you will be able to enhance your relationship with them. We believe that enhancing cooperation is an intangible benefit that is difficult to measure in dollars, but at the end of the day we are confident it should pay off.
  • This will lead in advantages such as a reduction in late or inaccurate deliveries from providers and an excess of inventories. You should also be able to enhance your forecasting and order entry and manufacturing schedules.
  • EDI Integration is a Collaborative Advantage while EDI integration may not give you a clear competitive advantage, implementing EDI or modernizing your present EDI attempts should not be ignored. Improving cooperation across your entire environment is highly important–you may not be able to quantify it in dollars, but in the longer term, we are confident that you will see beneficial outcomes from enhancing your EDI activities.
