Electronic Data Interchange means exchanging documents such as orders and invoices electronically. EDI has revolutionised the way in which companies do business with each other by providing a fast, accurate and dependable way to save money and improve efficiency throughout the supply-chain.

Faster transactions help maintain efficient stock levels, contribute to better use of warehouse space and results in less out-of-stock problems.

Quite simply, EDI is a fantastic way to improve the way customers and suppliers do business. Here's why;

- Eliminates paper - saving time filing thousands of documents
- Integrity checking - validates invoices to help speed up payments
- Creates a seamless link - reducing lead times and stockholding
- Environmentally friendly - shows commitment to reducing C02
- Strong competitive edge - builds concrete trading relationships
Web EDI enables people to develop closer relationships with their customers by reducing the administrative burden and increasing efficiency across the supply-chain to everyone's mutual benefit.

For these reasons, many retailers favour suppliers who engage in using EDI in order to create strong, long-term business relationships

Your computer simply uses its existing internet connection to securely send and receive documents such as orders & invoices.

Once you're up and running, you can also connect to other EDI-enabled customers. In fact, you'll belong to a community of thousands of 'trading partners'.
How does EDI work?

You can start using Web EDI from as little as £80 per month*. There's no setup costs, no hidden charges and nothing to pay upfront.

From a simple website subscription to a fully managed service, you can choose from a suite of products to fit your needs and your pocket.

You can also customise your system with add-ons, such as email notification when a new order has arrived, import/export with Microsoft Excel to save typing, and ftp access for fully automatic operation.

Web EDI enables you to receive orders and send invoices straight from your web browser. Ideal for sending up to 80 invoices per month.

Integrated EDI
Integrated EDI allows you to submit invoices in bulk straight from Microsoft Excel. An excellent way to process large volumes of invoices, quickly and easily.

Enterprise EDI
Enterprise EDI seamlessly links with back-office systems for fully-automatic operation with multiple trading partners via CSV/XML over FTP, SMTP & HTTPS
