Avoiding "Failure to Communicate" EDI Data

I’m reminded of the famous line from the 1967 movie Cool Hand Luke: ”What we have here is a failure to communicate.”  I have found that many newly EDI compliant companies, as well some EDI veterans, are not aware that there are multiple methods of sending and receiving EDI documents.

Bob Dylan’s 60s hit still has meaning here in the 21st century, even when it comes to your EDI processing.  When I first started working with EDI in the early 80s, there were very few EDI software options available.  A business—large, medium or small—that required EDI capabilities had to either develop their own in-house EDI translation software, or purchase one of these few EDI software suites, most of which were “one size fits all,” priced based on its high-end or enterprise usage, and very difficult to operate.  The situation remained pretty much the same until the mid to late 90s, when companies like Softshare (now Liaison Technologies) began developing smarter, user-friendly EDI Translation and EDI Communications software designed to meet the needs of small to medium sized businesses and priced to match the budgets of those companies.

The oil boom in North Dakota will not only be affecting businesses directly related to oil.  With plans to build industrial parks, hotels, restaurants and medical facilities, businesses involved in the manufacture and wholesale distribution of food, medical supplies, auto parts, and just about every type of commodity will be springing up and expanding.  EDI technology will be a crucial component to helping those businesses thrive in this exciting economic environment.
