Cloud EDI managed solutions offer a competitive advantage by enabling efficient and cost-effective digital services, helping increase speed to market and profitability.

After spending hours wading through reams of reports, invoices and data, it’s little wonder that companies actively seek out more efficient ways of handling their transactions. Thankfully, EDI is on hand to manage this, providing a way to improve delivery times, speed up invoice payments, minimise errors and maximise efficiency.

Companies can choose to set up and manage their own on-premise EDI solution, whereby the daily operation is handled by a team of technically trained employees.  The EDI software is generally connected to an ERP system for the automatic conversion and exchange electronic data of orders, invoices, ASN’s and other documents with customers and suppliers.

However, many companies are discovering that funding a dedicated team to set-up and manage this element of the supply chain operation is expensive when compared to a cloud-based managed EDI service.   

Another factor is that on-premise EDI can only exchange documents with suppliers and trading partners that already have EDI capability – some don’t, which can lead to increased complexity and errors.

When utilising EDI effectively, supplier relationship management can improve workflows, relieve procurement teams, and help your business to gain a competitive advantage through accurate data forecasting.
