This blog was written by Art Douglas from the Aurora EDI Alliance.  As an EDI consultant, every day I search for new clients.  Yesterday I once again saw an ad that had frequently presented itself over the past six months.  It advertised for an EDI SPECIALIST.  In the ad, it described the job as a customer service position, and one of the requirements was, “Must be experienced in entering the EDI orders.”

This blog was written by Karen Blood of GraceBlood LLC out of Baltimore, a member of the Aurora EDI Alliance.  You have a website, perhaps a line card, business cards, other collateral for your business, yes? And you have or soon will have the capability to exchange business documents with customers, suppliers or other trading partners via EDI or other ways that significantly reduce the time spent by your most valuable asset, your people, as they handle daily business transactions. This new capability also improves accuracy, decreases cycle times and improves relationships with those same trading partners. You may have made a significant investment in dollars and experience to get to this point. You may have had to do it at the behest of a single significant trading partner. Well, that was the hard part and now you have an important new tool! One of the easiest ways to increase your return on that investment and increase your business’s profit is to add more trading partners or business documents.

While this might not seem to apply to you or your other trading relationships today, Amazon more and more (like Walmart in the past) is a bellwether when it comes to making demands on suppliers. The never ceasing effort to bring customers robust selection at competitive prices in a hurry puts the responsibility squarely on distributors and manufacturers to fill orders and maintain proper levels of inventory to support demand.

Picture appears courtesy of Tax Credits.  This week's blog article was written by Art Douglas.  "EDI can save your company 99% of the costs of receiving Purchase Orders and forwarding Shipment Notices and Invoices."  That’s the claim made by the author of an article who knows about measuring that kind of thing.  I would add that in my many years in the EDI industry, I have seen many implementations that squander any possible gains by failing to find out the facts before deciding how to implement EDI.

Written by Shabih Syed and reprinted with permission from Liaison Technologies.  In today’s competitive environment, it is vital to the success of an organization to be able to quickly integrate new business applications, link trading partners for electronic data interchange (EDI), transform data between specific formats to fulfill regulatory record keeping requirements, and manage increasingly complicated and distributed supply chains. As complicated as all these tasks are, it's my opinion that we have only scratched the surface of complexity.
