  • Minimizing errors
  • Increasing productivity

EDI, a business trade opportunity in a global market

Globalization forces companies to adapt to different systems and platforms to be able to operate in any corner of the planet. However, thanks to EDI, this problem has a simple solution.

The complex variety of commercial operations makes document management difficult between countries, however EDI facilitates all kinds of procedures by standardizing the exchange of B2B processes. Simple operations such as stock management, shipping to suppliers, invoice payments or order processing suddenly became easier tasks thanks to EDI.

Having a global operator allows companies to develop operational policies that are more agile and efficient by having adequate computer management systems capable of operating in business relationships through combined software management and secure and private networks. This way, the exchange of standardized documents between the computer systems of both B2B parties is ensured.

Furthermore, EDI maximizes the exchange of operations and is the best way to take advantage of the current positive economic situation in Brazil. Although the use of invoicing is increasingly common in B2B relationships, it does not follow the same pattern in all countries.  Brazil is no exception, which is why there’s a need to have an optimal connection throughout the supply chain and ensure the sending and receiving processes in the ERP.

This way, any company can manage logistic business processes and establish all the necessary steps to connect with its suppliers, customers, logistics operators, and commercial partners using a global network.

For example, in the retail sector, the regulatory system allows users to send a catalog of products, manage an order or process a payment notification or invoice.

The use of EDI messages improve supply chain communications, automate processes and reduce operational errors by reporting valuable data such as the trace-ability of goods, an invoice payment and a delivery notice. In summary, EDI tools are essential for B2B operations, especially in retail EDI.
