More about EDI and Why You Should Choose Coast to Coast as Integrated Fulfillment Partner

Electronic Data Interchange EDI) is a standardized global electronic communication system for transmitting and receiving data between trading partners according to mutually-agreed-upon Message Implementation Guidelines (MIG). EDI information is transmitted computer-to-computer, with data received, processed, and acknowledged by computers without human intervention. Documents transmitted via EDI include purchase orders, order acknowledgements, Advance Shipping Notices (ASNs), bills of lading, receiving advice, invoices, and more.  Because information pertaining to orders in processed 24/7 without human action, transactional information is instantaneous, without manual data-entry errors.

EDI has been proven to be the fastest, most-secure mechanism for exchanging transactional data between organizations throughout the globe. Though EDI is a standardized system, the data within specific documents can have different sets of information from each trading partner. Furthermore, data mapping and data translation are often required to make external EDI data compatible with internal inventory and order processing systems and software, while many different incompatible versions of EDI software are used by various trading partners. Coast to Coast maintains versions of all relevant EDI software, while working closely with EDI service providers, whenever necessary, to ensure that all information from every trading partner and client is accurate, secure, and can be acted upon by our warehouse personnel.
