Knowing the Players in the EDI Project
EDI projects are not for the faint of heart; there are many bumps in the road and hundreds of undiscovered processes, between the initial concept and actual implementation.
Here are a few things that 1 EDI Source can help you with from the very beginning of the project:
- Identify the Project Driver – usually an outside party (especially, if you are a supplier).
- Identify the Project Sponsor – individual within the company, whose department budget would benefit the most from EDI integration.
- Identify the Project Coordinator – the liaison, person that knows the most about the current business process, and has a working relationship with the trading partner, and the person or department processing the EDI transactions.
