EDI is coming for Convenience Store Distributors whether we like it or not. We think you’ll love it.
The trends in convenience store distribution are similar to all other B2B businesses, EDI is ever more affordable and being demanded by trading partners.
EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) has been in use since the 1960’s. However, due to the expense of set-up costs, a confusing patchwork of protocols, and the relative rarity of ERP systems, only the largest companies could afford it and benefit from the advantages.
Now, as EDI costs have dramatically fallen and supply chains have become automated through affordable and powerful ERPs, EDI is used widely among B2B trading partners and the benefits are available to many more businesses.
Why will you love it? EDI is simply better B2B communication!
- EDI greatly reduces order and payment processing errors, for greater customer satisfaction and reduced cost of returns.
- Exchanging documents electronically improves transaction speed and tracking while lowering manual process costs.
- Increased profitability and better customer satisfaction through the best use of technology.
- Stronger trading partner relationships.
