Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of EDI?

EDI has been integral to global business commerce for decades, and it's because it provides numerous benefits for business-to-business communications. EDI is a standardized data format and business language that speeds up the onboarding of customers and trading partners. But EDI also delivers cost savings, faster order-to-cash cycles, improved data quality and accuracy, greater process automation, and increased security when paired with advanced communication protocols. Ultimately, EDI vastly improves business efficiency and agility and helps to deliver greater economies of scale.

How do I choose the right EDI solution?

So much of your bottom line depends on revenue-generating EDI processes, and it's critical to choose the right EDI solution. Which solution you select all depends on your current and future business needs. But how will you know what kind of requirements your business will have down the road? You don't, and that's why it's important to evaluate not only a robust EDI solution that supports all the protocols and even non-EDI formats your ecosystem demands now, but a vendor who will invest in maintaining the technology and your business's success. Your EDI vendor and solution should be a strategic partnership. That partner will take the time to understand your business and pain points and will continue to innovate solutions for whatever's on the EDI and B2B horizon.

Which type of EDI deployment - on-premise, cloud, or fully managed - is right for my business?

The question of whether to leverage an on-premise, cloud (as-a-service), or fully managed model can be answered by how much EDI processing you want or are able to handle. On-premise or private cloud deployments put the onus on your internal resources to manage the EDI technology and processing in-house. An as-a-service option entails leveraging a solution in the cloud in more of a self-service model, where your IT teams manage the EDI processes in a hosted system but not necessarily the underlying technology. In a fully-managed EDI solution, a team of experts will comprehensively manage and maintain the solution for you, taking any day-to-day EDI responsibilities off your plate. For most companies, however, EDI is not a core business competency and is a process that takes a very specialized skill set, and more and more are discovering the value of a managed EDI service.
