EDI – The digital solution to automate the entire fulfillment process

What is EDI?

EDI stands for Electronic Data Interchange. EDI allows you to exchange business documents and information between digital systems. This requires that all business processes linked to EDI be systematized and automated. Once operational, the data transfer is routinely exchanged between the linked systems.

EDI is the perfect automation solution for retail

EDI is a perfect automation solution for retail and wholesale. It’s a digital solution to automate the entire fulfillment process. From purchase orders and invoices to processing the entire accounting, with EDI this is done quickly and without errors. EDI can also be integrated with Oracle NetSuite ERP.

How can EDI be used in your business?

Companies use EDI to increase business efficiency and reduce costs. Simple routine work is easy to automate, which means less time and staff. With EDI, you quickly save on a few FTEs and the cost of setting up workstations. You can also provide better customer service as delivery times can be reduced from days to hours with EDI. Consumers typically expect next-day delivery after placing an order. By automating your sales and handling process, you will meet your customers’ expectations and significantly strengthen your competitive position in the market.

More advantages of using EDI

In addition to having a strong position on the market, great customer service, and more time to spend on innovation or expanding your business, there are some other benefits of using EDI:
  • Your inventory management, production, and purchasing process are much more accurate and faster because the system reports what its status is and what actions must be taken to meet supply and demand.
  • Electronic documents are delivered quickly and without errors, saving you overhead costs.
  • The EDI provides clear overviews of orders, deliveries, and stock, among others. You therefore know exactly what the state of affairs of your company is. It offers you the opportunity to draw up good quarterly and annual plans and you can use this to estimate whether you can expand if you want to grow.
  • You save on operating costs and time, which you can spend on innovation or service to your customers to maintain and strengthen your position in the market.
  • EDI is an affordable system, ideal for SMEs, retail, distributors, and factories. Investing in an EDI integration with NetSuite ERP is a strategic decision that yields greater profit. Both when it comes to finances and time.
