EDI mit unseren Handelspartnern

EDI with our Business Partners

EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is the system-to-system exchange of business documents in a standard electronic format without the need for human intervention. Manual management of order confirmations, delivery notes, invoices and other paper documents has a significant impact on the day-to-day operations of departments such as Purchasing, Sales and Logistics. With EDI, once you have sent us an order directly from your ERP system or e-procurement platform, you can directly receive and manage all the related documents (e.g. invoices) in electronic form in your company’s system.

The Advantages of Using EDI

With EDI, you benefit from an automated document receipt and dispatch that does not require manual data entry. As a result, the number of potential and avoidable errors is significantly reduced. Electronic documents sent via EDI are automatically processed and then archived, eliminating the cost of paper-based document management. EDI accelerates your business processes by automatically checking orders, delivery notes and invoices and reducing order processing and delivery times.
