Reduce costs

Research shows that EDI software costs just one-third of any paper-based equivalent. Some studies suggest it could be up to 70 times cheaper.

It reduces the need for your employees to key documents received by email or post into multiple systems. Instead, orders, invoices, ASN’s and delivery notices arrive digitally and automatically upload into your supply chain applications. It eliminates human error when keying in hundreds, or even thousands of documents each year.

Studies suggest that up to 5% of manually entered data is typed incorrectly. Cloud-based EDI solutions digitise and automate order document processing so you can spend less time on admin and more time focusing on activities that will grow your business. Let’s explore the benefits of EDI

We don't charge VAN fees

Transalis uses the latest technology to eliminate VAN charges, reducing the costs of EDI.

Some EDI companies charge clients according to how often they use their value-added network (VAN) to send messages and documents to trading partners.

Transalis does not do this, which means your EDI costs remain consistent regardless of increasing trading volumes, so you can grow your business without worrying about the bills.

Speed up customer deliveries

Today’s consumers are more demanding than ever. They expect faster deliveries and a frictionless customer experience… if not they’ll go elsewhere!  So suppliers and retailers need to stay in control of stock and order processing to ensure there are no bumps along the way.

Thanks to EDI, transactions that once took days or weeks can now be digitised, automated and completed in just hours. Research has found EDI solutions can speed up customer delivery time by almost a third.

What are the benefits of EDI?

Boost operational efficiency

Swift processing of accurate data significantly speeds up the order-to-cash cycle, improving your cash flows.

Thanks to supply chain EDI, shorter processing and delivery times can enable you to reduce your stock levels and even switch to more efficient ‘lean’ or ‘just-in-time’ supply chain models.

This increased agility ensures you can take greater advantage of discounts and improved payment terms.

By cultivating deep and robust relationships with your trading network, you can unlock lasting customer lifetime value for your business.

EDI gives you the visibility to instantly identify any blockages and problems in supply chain order processing, enabling you to step in and resolve issues before they become a problem.

Supply chain success

Processes reliant on paper, email and spreadsheets, are notoriously slow and complicated. You are constantly trying to piece together old data to get an idea of how your supply chain is performing.

Cloud-based EDI solutions give you a real-time view of orders and deliveries across your entire supply chain. That’s because EDI is constantly updating the status of orders, invoices, credit notes, returns, and centralising all of this data to give you a full picture of what’s happening right now.

This enables EDI software users to identify problems and spot opportunities faster, ensuring your business is agile and customer-focused.

EDI gives you greater control over your supply chain

EDI integrates seamlessly with your existing systems

Cloud-based EDI solutions integrate seamlessly with all major back-office systems such as ERP, OMS, SCM, WMS, eCommerce and accounting platforms.

Integrations include Microsoft 365, SAP, Syspro, Oracle, Netsuite, WooCommerce and Shopify to name but a few.

How much can EDI save me?

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, ASN’s and delivery notes. Two of the most common benefits of EDI are the removal of double keying of information and the reduction in data entry errors.
