Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) refers to the structured transmission of data between organizations by electronic means. It is used to transfer electronic documents from one computer system to another (ie) from one trading partner to another trading partner.
At GEDIMS we provide EDI Services and EDI Solutions to companies who want to implement EDI in their business. Our goal is to get you up and running with EDI quickly. With our experience and knowledge of EDI we can help you to start doing business and sending electronic documents over the web.
We support all types of EDI standards, EDI versions and EDI transactions sets (EDI documents). This will include X12 and EDIFACT standards as well.
Generating value for our clients with EDI is the primary goal of our integration services. Regardless of the company size, our integration solutions help you avoid manual keying of data which will reduce labor costs and processing errors by integrating data directly with your business applications.
We use a data translation system that provides an outsourced any-to-any data mapping service that lets our customers focus on their business and not EDI issues. When a trading partner changes their EDI requirements, our experienced team of experts take care of ensuring that all necessary changes are handled in a timely manner.
We provide EDI solutions to companies across all industries. Below there is a list of industries that use EDI documents/transaction sets.
Even though all industries around the world use e-commerce, each and every one of them act differently, has its own set of business rules and has its own way of doing business with their trading partners. Beginning with EDI and VAN's to other e-commerce technologies such as XML, AS2 and Web Services, companies from all types of industries are using e-commerce in a way that best fit their needs and goals
The process of using EDI is very straight forward, a standard document (agreed upon by both parties,) is translated into a specific format and sent (or received) via a secure communication (data transport) method. The data is broken into small segments ie: Ship To - Name and Address or Product Identifiers depending on the type of business you are involved with. X12 covers all industries with approximately 500 different document types.
We also provide data translation solutions other than EDI which will guarantee accuracy based on the data translated, improve efficiency by limiting the amount of time consumed by human interation and reducing labor costs associated with this process.
An example would be converting an excel document set of data to multiple outputs such as an import file for a database, automatically printing multiple documents and saving each document as a word, acrobat pdf or custom type. We can put together a custom solution to streamline some of your business processes that require data translation.
We are always available to support you
