Electronic Data Interchange

EDI is the structured transmission of standardized digital documents from one computer system to another computer system without human intervention.

EDI documents replaces paper based business-to-business data documents such bills of lading or even cheques between one trading partner and another trading partner.

EDI can be transmitted using any agreed upon method by the sender and recipient.

Corporations and organizations worldwide are demanding their just-in-time supply chain and production trading partners to switch to EDI/AS2 communications.

myGeeks has vast expertise and hands-on experience in planning, implementing and managing EDI/AS2/ERP systems and software.

What are the advantages of EDI over paper documents?

Applicability Statement 2 Security

AS2 is a specification standard by which vendor applications transmit EDI or other documents securely and reliably over the Internet. AS2 is based on HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) and S/MIME (Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) and provides security through digital signatures and encryption.

Cost

EDI save organizations money by replacing or reducing paper-based information flows that require a great deal of distributing, organizing, searching, printing and faxing of paper documents.

Time

Paper forms and documents awaiting some form of human interaction are the # 1 "bottleneck" of organizations and industries world wide. EDI dramatically reduces cycle times and greatly increases the speed of communication between trading partners. EDI eliminates the need to manually rekey documents on the destination side thus reduced shipping and billing errors. With EDI, accurate information is updated and rapidly incorporated into Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software accounting systems and databases.

Enterprise Resource Planning

ERP is an integrated system used by businesses to combine, organize and maintain the data necessary for operations. ERP systems merge each of the company’s key operations, including the manufacturing, distribution, financial, human resources and customer relations departments into a single software system. For many companies, the ERP software is the heart of their operations and the backbone of the organization.
