Ever since Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) has come into existence, daily tasks in businesses have become easier and with minimal time consumption. Gone are the days when businesses used to operate by using faxes, phone calls or paper to connect with their trading partners. Now, EDI has completely taken over the space to operate more effectively and efficiently.
Here are some of the common business operational issues that can be solved by an EDI managed service.
B2B Integration with trading partners
Adding new business partners bring new challenges for operational tasks. Also, new documentation needs to be added including business accounting and ERP applications. The task of aligning and configuring the new documentation is complex enough to be swiftly integrated into the business systems. That is where the need for EDI managed service comes into place. By collaborating with partners via EDI, your financial flow increases, much more efficiencies are created because of less human effort and, ultimately, it becomes a positive effect on your bottom line profitability.
Managing EDI documents with the help of an EDI managed service provides you smooth and quick response with every transaction. This includes storing, receiving, sending and sharing the document amongst your trading partners. When you provide and receive a quick response from your stakeholder, you are ultimately building a strong relationship with your B2B partners and clients.
Disruptive Application updates
EDI connections often get disturbed due to a wide variety of enterprise software solutions such as enterprise resource planning programs, accounting tools, customer relationship management software and more. As they receive upgrades, enhancements, and alterations, it gets difficult to make them compatible with other 3rd party internal applications. Having an EDI managed service can be helpful in migrating around these problems in order to maintain the fluency of business operations.
It is difficult for in-house networks to manage large applications with a complex process. Also, huge volumes of data can be one of the causes for a complex network management. Associating with an EDI managed service allows these operational issues to be controlled. EDI has complete control over the application portfolio and the IT infrastructure in order to smoothen the connectivity.
