Just imagine if your computer system could talk directly to your suppliers’ and customers’ computers, we explain what is EDI.

What if you could automatically share and process important documents faster, cheaper and more accurately than ever before. Think about how much simpler it would be if you could do all this safely in real-time, right across your supply chain.

There’s no need to imagine, because you can do all of this and more with electronic data interchange (EDI). 

The right EDI solution can help you improve the operational efficiencies of your business across your supply chain ecosystem, as well as ensuring your systems are agile so you can quickly scale up as your business grows.

What is EDI (Electronic Data Interchange)?

If you’re wondering ‘What is EDI?’, you’ve come to the right place.

For decades forward-thinking companies have used EDI software to automatically swap and process vital paperwork.

Now, cloud-based EDI gives companies like yours the chance to follow suit and finally drop slow and expensive paper-based processes.

No more searching around for the latest order or head-scratching over the status of a credit note. EDI sorts all of this out.

EDI safely takes care of the admin, automatically delivering the high-quality information your business needs to grow. 

It is a real-time, secure, transparent and seamless way of managing purchases and accompanying documentation across your entire trading network.

Without EDI

  • Orders and other documents raised manually
  • PDF's sent by email or post
  • Re-keying of post and email orders
  • Average cost to process £14 per order

With EDI

  • Orders, Invoices & ASN's raised automatically
  • Documents sent and received digitally in seconds
  • Digital entry directly into customers’ systems
  • Average savings of 65% over paper-based systems

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 invoices, ASN’s 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.
