What is Electronic Data Interchange or EDI?

Electronic data interchange, or EDI, is the computer-to-computer exchange of business documents in a standard electronic format between business partners, or trading partners. 

When companies move from a paper-based exchange of business documents to one that is electronic, the order to shipment cycles can decrease by 50 percent, there is greater accuracy in fulfillment and business relationships improve. 

More than 85 percent of all electronic business transactions take place using EDI. It has proven to be the best way for you to exchange business documents quickly and securely with any organization anywhere in the world. If your business isn’t already using electronic data interchange, it’s likely that some of your trading partners are.
