Today’s connected consumers want more and they want it faster.
To keep up with those demands, it’s imperative that all retailers adopt protocols that will allow them to maintain perpetual inventory and eliminate the time and labor costs associated with replenishing stock.
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) can make that happen. It’s playing a large role in the disruption of retail. When you’ve got EDI, very little human input is needed to keep your inventory flowing quickly, efficiently, and accurately. In our present age of retail, any enterprise of any scale can access such systems–and most will benefit greatly from doing so.
Inside you’ll find answers to the following questions:
- What is EDI and how does it work?
- What immediate benefits does EDI offer? How does it make retailers more competitive?
- Why will EDI functionality become a necessity for retailers in the future?
- How can EDI be combined with Computer-Assisted Ordering (CAO) to transform an enterprise into an automation powerhouse?
