454 Associates

Subject matter experts in EDI

To compete tomorrow, today’s businesses are looking to meet their customer’s demands quicker than ever. Delivering the right product to the right place at the right place is tougher when trying to shorten lead times to gain that competitive advantage. Suppliers looking to improve their Order-to-Cash cycle and Buyers making efficiencies in their Purchase-to-Pay Cycle both need to collaborate to reach their goals.

Processes such as Purchasing, Order management, Shipping, Receiving, Inventory management, Invoicing, Remittances and Payments can be automated, accelerated and made more accurate by the exchange of  data using EDI.

In the age of the Internet, XML, APIs and digital signatures, the fundamental principles of EDI are still there and 454’s expertise can help you make the most of it.

What is EDI and how can it help your business
What is EDI?
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the computer-to-computer exchange of standard business documents, such as Purchase Orders and Invoices between trading partners, sent in an agreed electronic format, across a secure connection.
Benefits of EDI
EDI improves business processes thanks to the shortening of time cycles in the exchange and processing of data that drive processes on both sides of the business relationship. Find out how EDI can benefit your business by contacting 454 today.
