Keep Pace and Reduce Errors
Fashion apparel and consumer lifestyle products companies have little margin for errors and delays. Timely, reliable visibility and collaboration around purchase orders, invoices, shipping, inventory and other critical business documents and confirmations are essential for success. To ensure compliance with delivery and customer service requirements, many companies have embraced Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) as the standard for sharing information with customers, suppliers and other business partners.
EDI saves companies time and money. By eliminating manual creation, duplicated data entry and related errors in the retrieval, processing and transportation of documents and information, many retailers requiring suppliers to convert their sales and purchasing operations have turned to EDI as the standard for business-to-business integration.
