Electronic Data Interchange is been evolving since the mid 70s, but is still a significant way to exchange business documents between trading partners. The technology allows documents to be generated into a common electronic form, governed by the
American National Standards Institute, for businesses to exchange. In short, you can send a purchase order to multiple suppliers electronically without the need to special requirements for each. Now, much of the EDI traffic has moved to the Internet as a carrier, but the documents themselves have not changed and the process remains similar.
Peerless Supply has been exchanging EDI documents with our customers and vendors for nearly 30 years and we are well educated on the process and able to meet most of your requirements. If you would like to explore becoming and EDI trading partner, please let us know and we’ll be happy to explain to you the process and how we can help you use EDI to reduce your transaction costs.
