The transmission of information between people nowadays is now within everyone’s fingertips. Before, people need to get to someone in order to pass on information, and such takes a lot of time. Today, its speed and importance have been heightened exponentially; to the point that businesses often thrive on how fast they can send and receive information to and from other businesses through electronic means. This concept of electronically communicating information, called electronic data interchange or EDI, is now being used on transactions that, in the past, were done on paper like invoices.
Similar to many other forms of information technology and hardware, EDI was based on developments in the military. Now, there are different standards, solution suites, and brands that allow EDI between businesses. If you have a business specializing on automotive supplies, whether or not you’re now using a particular EDI solutions package, you should check out Knovalent’s Vanguard Software Solution.
