What is EDI?
EDI is the most common method for exchanging electronic business information between systems and business partners. It’s a form of communication that is translated into a format that both parties (suppliers or sellers) can understand. To use EDI, a business typically needs to use a Valued-Added Network (VAN) service to translate the EDI data into a communication their own systems will understand.
Most companies also implement an EDI order management system, which can automate and streamline the process of trading with a large retailer like Bulbs. It can help manage product inventory, orders, shipping, and trading partner relationships, as well as forecasting inventory needs and performing cost analysis. When the right systems are in place, trading with a large retailer like Bulbs can be more efficient, productive, and profitable.
