Supply Chains Explore The API Opportunity With Orderful’s EDI Software

EDI data is an integral part of the buyer-supplier relationship. It has been around since the 1970s and is not going away any time soon. However, it does have its shortcomings, here are a few:

  • Suppliers must often build point-to-point integration environments, which is a tedious and time consuming process.
  • Traditionally, EDI data files are sent via communication channels, like a value-added network (VAN). However, data isn’t validated until the receiving party picks it up, which can take hours or days to resolve.
  • EDI data may not be encrypted when it moves through communication protocols like a file transfer protocol (FTP) or value-added network (VAN).

Orderful’s EDI software is a modern solution to these drawbacks, giving suppliers more control and visibility into their supply chain transactions. By moving your data into a single API, you can programmatically control your EDI data.
