The impact of scalable EDI solutions

  • Cost of doing business

    Most EDI vendors have a one-size-fits-all approach that eliminates some manual work but fails to deliver the full capabilities growing businesses need. Get an EDI solution that delivers enterprise-grade speed and reliability at mid-market budgets.

  • Partner onboarding

    Businesses need the flexibility to meet varied requirements and communication standards while growing their global network and speeding time to revenue. Support every regional and global standard to quickly expand to new partners anywhere in the world.

  • Supply chain collaboration and customer relations

    Relying on email, spreadsheets and paper documents causes fragmentation and errors, inhibiting crucial customer relationships. Enhance collaboration, accelerate turnaround and eliminate errors to become a preferred partner with your customers.

  • Business growth and resilience

    B2B integration environments enable growth and improve agility amidst market disruption. Rely on a trusted EDI vendor with expertise, self-service tools and enterprise-level technology to remove transformation roadblocks and resource bottlenecks.

  • Internal business system integration

    Reducing manual effort and enabling data visibility requires system integration. ERP integration with a customizable, pre-build adaptor achieves seamless data flows and allows a real-time view of all transactions directly within your ERP system.

  • Resource optimization

    Despite increasing investment in B2B integration, businesses struggle with finite IT resources and network complexity that delay integration projects. Leverage an EDI platform with intuitive self-service tools and professional support.

Frequently asked questions

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the computer-to-computer exchange of business documents in a standard electronic format between business partners. By moving from a paper-based or email-based exchange of business documents to a standard EDI format, businesses can send and receive purchase orders (POs), advanced ship notices (ASNs), invoices and more straight to the appropriate internal application (e.g. ERP), without requiring human interaction. Learn more.

Because EDI documents are processed by computers rather than humans, a standard format must be used so the receiving computer can read and understand the documents. Today, there are many EDI standards, protocols and versions in use. OpenText delivers the broadest EDI integration support of any EDI vendor including specific regional and industry standards, as well as API integration and email/fax to EDI solutions.

Early B2B integration solutions focused on replacing manual processes with automated digital alternatives, mostly using EDI. Once organizations started trading electronically, it became clear that business processes could be further enhanced by introducing additional features to the same B2B integration solution. While EDI remains a bedrock of B2B integration technologies, there are an additional range of features that should be included: global partner management, business process management, enterprise application integration, business activity monitoring, advanced analytics and more. Discover 5 ways B2B integration tools can deliver a competitive advantage.
