Using EDI Software to Detect Trading Partner Changes

October 23, 2012

Companies that rely on EDI data often ask how they can receive alerts to detect trading partner changes.

Some address these challenges by creating custom code while others manually review all purchase orders and invoices.   However, both options are time consuming and can detract attention from other essential business tasks.

In addition to helping manage your EDI data, your EDI solutions provider also should offer tools and applications to help you do more with your EDI system, like fact check invoices and purchase orders.
