Electronic Data Interchange, or EDI, is one of those terms that most of us have heard, some of us know we need, and few of us understand.
Fortunately, the technology and surrounding tools have advanced to the place where it’s not necessary to fully understand the behind-the-scenes operation of EDI in order to use it.
EDI is the computer to computer exchange of standard business documents, such as purchase orders and invoices, in electronic format. A standard file format is established for each kind of document (although they often get tweaked!) in order to facilitate the exchange of data across a variety of platforms and programs.
