Want to communicate faster and more accurately, while spending less money at the same time? Then you want EDI.
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the computer-to-computer exchange of business data – in other words, conducting business transactions electronically. EDI improves the accuracy and speed of information exchange between our companies. And it allows uniform communications with all of your trading partners, including customers, suppliers, carriers, and financial institutions.
Performance advantages on many levels.
Here’s a sampling of the business advantages Eaton's EDI can deliver for you:
Faster communications - Electronic data can be sent any time, day or night, to ensure the most accurate and timely information is delivered efficiently.
Improved accuracy - Incoming orders, invoices, and other transactions no longer have to be manually entered into the system, eliminating the possibility of keypunch errors and also cutting expenses.
Reduced costs - Significantly reduce business expenses, such as postage, printing, phone calls and handling. There are minimal costs for EDI transmissions, but they appear nearly non-existent when compared with the paper, paper handling and mailing costs of manual processes.
