EDI by Industry

  • Automotive Industry
  • Retail Industry
  • Manufacturing Industry
  • E-commerce Industry
  • Healthcare Industry

EDI is a format used for B2B data transfer. It is a standardized way for companies to send and receive business documents electronically, such as purchase orders and invoices. It also allows businesses to send and receive other types of data, including documents related to orders, shipments, payments and more.

EDI transactions involve the sending and receiving of messages between trading partners over electronic channels. The messages are typically sent via computer systems and contain information such as purchase orders, invoices, shipping notices and payment confirmations.

EDI is often used by businesses in industries such as manufacturing and logistics to automate their order processing and supply chain management processes.

Today, EDI has become an essential tool for many businesses because it allows companies to transmit data quickly without having to rely on fax machines or other outdated technologies.

The main advantage of using EDI over paper documents is that it reduces errors and allows businesses to communicate more clearly with each other. For example, when a supplier sends a purchase order to a buyer through paper mail or fax, there is no way for the buyer to check whether the information on the purchase order was entered correctly by the supplier. With EDI, however, both parties can check whether the information on the purchase order was entered correctly by looking at their computer screens or printouts of their computer screens.

The most commonly used EDI document standards are as follows:

  • ANSI X12: ANSI X12 is an EDI standard widely used in the United States. It is used to enable the electronic exchange of business documents (invoices, orders, shipping notices, etc.).
  • EDIFACT: EDIFACT is another widely used EDI standard internationally. This document standard is used in various sectors such as trade, transportation, customs and finance.
  • TRADACOMS: TRADACOMS is an EDI standard mainly used in the United Kingdom. TRADACOMS is often preferred in the retail sector in the UK.
  • ODETTE: ODETTE is an EDI standard used in the automotive industry to enable the electronic exchange of documents such as orders, shipments and invoices.

While the above standards are widely used in certain industries, there are also different EDI document formats according to the needs of businesses. EDI standards contain guidelines that define the data format, fields, codes and transmission of messages in B2B.

The relationship between SAP and EDI is as follows:

SAP is eligible to support many standards where EDI is used for data exchange. With EDI integration, companies using SAP convert the documents created in SAP systems (invoice, order, shipment notification, etc.) into EDI format and transmit the documents to their recipients. Likewise, EDI documents received from business partners are integrated into the SAP system and processed.

SAP and EDI integration automates business processes and enables automatic data transfer between systems instead of manual data entry and document exchange. EDI automation also prevents potential human errors in document transfer processes. For this reason, SAP EDI integration is critical for businesses.
