An Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is a well-known Business to Business (B2B) process for ordering goods or services. In addition, it allows companies to track the status of a submission. Each EDI process is highly customized to be specific to each party, including communication set-ups and automated exchanges. As a result, it can be expensive to develop and to maintain.
An efficient EDI will interpret exchanged data from business documents as they are released. It will also make it easier to manage trade or commercial documents on their own instead of developing custom, complex, or one-to-one communication.
To secure and ease B2B or Business to Government (B2G) document processes, new platforms, norms, and protocols have emerged. The ideal infrastructure allows companies to modernize existing EDI for better returns.
