Myth 2:

“EDI solutions are too expensive”

From the EDI Mythbuster Report

EDI has been around since the 1970s, but there is a massive difference between the EDI offered then, and the new Cloud-based EDI available today.  But a lot of the old myths still exist – a lot of EDI providers are still peddling their services and inflating their charges with overly complex set-ups and erroneous costs, no longer a factor with today’s advanced technologies.

For years now, EDI providers have been clouding EDI in a cloak of mystery and complexity – generally resulting in a long list of unexpected and increasing cost that are often difficult to pin down.

But it doesn’t need to be that way. Transalis has streamlined its EDI pricing model to ensure great value for money and a compelling return on investment for all its customers.

For example, unlike its competitors, Transalis does not charge customers up-front when they purchase an EDI bundle. There are no initial set-up charges and no additional charges for things such as different message types or data transactions. With Transalis there’s one annual subscription, that’s it. That’s why Transalis prides itself on being easy to buy from and simple to switch to.

Measuring the benefit of your investment in an EDI solution can be complex. To help establish a baseline we recommend you look at the time you and your team spend managing orders, invoices, advance shipping and delivery notes. Two of the most common benefits of EDI is the removal of double keying of information and the reduction in data-entry errors. Use the Transalis eDI™ ROI calculator to see how much you could save.
