EDI, not just another acronym!

Tuesday, October 4, 2016

Acronyms are not new; they have been used for centuries. For example, the official name for the Roman Empire, and the Republic before it, was abbreviated as SPQR (Senatus Populusque Romanus). Inscriptions dating from antiquity on stone and on coins used a lot of abbreviations and acronyms to save room and reduce workload.

EDI has not been used for centuries but it can reduce workload! But what does EDI stand for? EDI stands for Electronic Data Interchange and can be loosely defined as a structured transmission of electronic data between organisations, e.g. purchase orders, invoices and delivery notes.

How can EDI benefit your business? EDI streamlines your business, which not only saves time but also money. It eliminates data entry errors and increases your efficiency and speed. There are large cost savings on labour, an excellent return on investments. it’s environmentally friendly by reducing paper transactions, there are improved tracking capabilities and supply chain management; it also reduces stationery and postal charges!
