How Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) works
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is targeting organizations like Carrefour UAE that perform numerous transactions with their trading partners on a daily basis. In the past, trade documents were exchanged via fax and email; however, because this was a time consuming and error-prone method, the need for an efficient system has emerged. The EDI system is enabled through the internet, and with its validation mechanism, trade documents can automatically be verified, without any delays and instead of having employees doing it manually.
Exploring the benefits of EDI
In an increasingly competitive environment, efficient collaboration with suppliers is a key priority for UAE retailers running large-scale operations, such as Carrefour. EDI solutions will accelerate the transaction process, as trade documents (including purchase orders, ASN, sales reports and others) are exchanged instantly. By further eliminating paper documents, printing and other costs, errors will be significantly reduced and time will be managed more efficiently.
