Retail EDI stands for Retail Electronic Data Interchange. Retail EDI allows retailers to digitally exchange business information with suppliers in a standardized format such as a purchase order or invoice, increasing automation and reducing disruption.
EDI integration allows both trading partners to save time and money with a faster and more efficient business process than a more traditional communication method such as email, faxes, or paper documents. An EDI solution can also improve capacity planning and provide flexibility for ecommerce growth.
Some common use cases for an EDI transaction include informing retailers about stock levels, sending information about a purchase order ( item, quantity, price, shipping details), and providing confirmation of an order fulfillment.
As retail sales volume grows, so do the partners involved, such as manufacturers, shippers, and suppliers. This creates challenges in connecting all the different logistics partners in real time and in a unified format. With EDI compliance, there are also security standards a business must ensure they are following.
