No longer is efficient EDI a ‘nice-to-have’ for supply chain businesses. In the context of modern commerce, EDI is central to the success of B2B relationships and forms the foundation of digital procurement and sales processes. Given the technology’s long history, however, EDI today is a complicated beast, with many different standards, protocols and legal requirements. As a result many businesses struggle with either a lack of in-house EDI expertise or outdated and overly complex legacy systems and thus miss out on the significant benefits of efficient, streamlined data processes.
In the first webinar in our five-part series we discuss the problems with a traditional approach to EDI and the measures required to remove restrictions from your business’s growth, touching on e-Invoicing, orders-to-cash, procure-to-pay and evolving protocols among many other topics.
Topics covered will include:
- The history, purpose and origin of EDI
- Four key challenges in EDI:
- Legal requirements
- Why your outdated EDI system landscape could be holding you back
- How it is possible to solve all these issues with a unified approach and a single technology solution
