What is EDI?

EDI is shorthand for electronic data interchange. EDI is used by companies to exchange business documents digitally using an efficient and standardized format. EDI replaces postal mail, fax, and email to connect directly to business systems including e-commerce solutions, warehouse management systems (WMS), and enterprise resource planning systems (ERP).

Purchase orders, invoices, advanced ship notices, and other various document types can be digitally transmitted using EDI. Exchanging documents electronically increases speed and visibility while eliminating the costs associated with manual processes.
