What is Electronic Data Interchange?

Electronic Data Interchange, or EDI, is the electronic transfer of data between two or more companies. Electronic Data Interchange is performed in a standardized form and can include purchase orders, invoices and confirmations as well as ASN. Since its inception in the early 1980's Electronic Data Interchange has remained vital to the overall business process with billions of dollars worth of goods and services being ordered or paid for using Electronic Data Interchange.

Today, Electronic Data Interchange is more important than ever with nearly every new industry, including retail, healthcare, financial and automotive, requiring the use of Electronic Data Interchange to perform daily operations. Electronic Data Interchange is proven to help reduce costs and increase customer satisfaction.

Nearly every industry has come to count the benefits of reduced cost and increased customer service and satisfaction that are derived from EDI use as a given. Those first information standards created, EDIFACT and ANSI X12, continue to carry many of those electronic commerce dollars through a variety of e-business networks today.

Megasys, Ltd. does not provide EDI translation software or services. We focus on automating and managing communication routines, from the initial configurations involved in adding a new partner, to sending, receiving, and monitoring hundreds of daily transmissions from dozens of different sources.
