Electronic Data Interchange



Electronic Data Transaction Exchange?

Electronic data interchange (EDI) is an electronic communication method that provides standards for exchanging data. By adhering to the same standard, two companies or organizations, even in two different countries, can electronically exchange documents (such as purchase orders, invoices, shipping notices, and many others).

EDI is used in nearly all industries such as medical, finance, retail, logistics, distribution, and manufacturing.



Standard formats describe each piece of information and in what format the data is to be traded. There are several EDI standards in use today, including ANSI, EDIFACT, TRADACOMS and ebXML.

When two businesses decide to exchange EDI documents, they must agree on the specific EDI standard and version. Businesses typically use an EDI translator (either as in-house software or via an EDI service provider) to translate the EDI format so the data can be used by their internal applications and thus enable accurate processing of documents.
