EDI (Electronic data interchange) is the electronic movement of data between organizations in a structured, computer- retrievable data format. It has the ability to reduce labor costs by importing and exporting data directly from/to customer and vendors. EDI also allows for the limitation of human keystroke errors. Data is generally not re-entered, allowing for expediting ordering and processing. All data is transmitted electronically, so the manual human transmission of mail through the post office is no longer necessary. Consequently, EDI solution results in a more rapid customer driven response, as well as an enhanced trading relationship. The savings lead to a cheaper and more efficient way to deal with customer requests and order fulfillment, leading to lower cost for goods across the board.
