Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the computer-to-computer exchange of business documents in a standard electronic format between businesses. The major benefits are reduced cost, increased processing speed, reduced errors, and improved relationships with trading partners.
EDI has increasingly become a more standard way of processing transactions, and many large retailers have strict compliance requirements with their vendors. Failure to send and receive data according to a retailer’s EDI format and conventions can lead to fines or a termination of the business relationship.
bcFood’s out-of-the-box integration with bcEDI allows your Dynamics environment to seamlessly communicate with your customers and vendors. bcEDI is fully compliant with all major retailers, and has multiple network deployment options.
