Companies looking to do business with major retailers quickly discover that Electronic Data Interchange is the dominant format for receiving purchase orders and sending invoices.

The answer: EDI webforms from Effective Data for fast deployment and affordable EDI access to drive business. At Effective Data, we offer complete EDI software support. Our services include providing cloud-based EDI, on-premise EDI, and EDI via VAN. We offer onboarding, management, and consulting services for EDI.
EDI – the dominant electronic document exchange format for more than 50 years – remains the standard for streamlining data exchange between businesses. Many larger retailers require EDI adoption in order to do to business. The challenge lies in the effort and expense of developing of a full internal EDI solution. Even the lift in sales that this can generate isn’t enough to justify the expense for smaller companies.
Effective Data has responded with an EDI webform solution developed with small to mid-sized companies in mind. In place of a full-blown automated system, all EDI interaction is manual via a web browser.
- This entry-level system is ideal for companies requiring EDI access, but only need to exchange a few documents per month.
- Highly flexible: configure the webform around your requirements and EDI fields and enter all information manually.
- Adoption and setup are fast and easy and can allow a small company to quickly achieve compliance with customer EDI requirements.
- Adopting Web EDI can also be an inexpensive way to pilot test EDI before attempting to implement an internal EDI solution. By treating Web EDI as a proof of concept, it can be a way of understanding the potential pitfalls of internal integration and how to best modify internal processes for a successful EDI implementation.
