Logistics and Distributors
Stay Competitive in Your Industry
Time is money, and that’s never been truer than with companies in the distribution industry, and 3PL warehouses. Electronic data interchange (EDI) can help forever change the speed at which you conduct business.
EDI solutions for distribution have the power to dramatically accelerate and streamline vital processes within your supply chain. Without EDI for distributors in place, moving inventory typically requires quite a few steps, anything from a buyer writing up a purchase order to a supplier manually entering it into the shipping system. EDI speeds up this arduous process.
Through EDI, purchase orders can now be transmitted directly to the supplier through an electronic network, and the supplier then receives the order almost instantly. Because of these lightning-fast EDI distributor transactions, items can often ship the same day the order is sent, speeding up the sending of invoices and in turn, payments.
