Businesses are turning to EDI for a variety of compelling reasons, including cost savings,
workflow and productivity efficiencies, demands from trading partners, and in some cases,
regulatory mandates. Whatever the reason, it is clear that having a fundamental understanding
of what EDI is, what it can do, and how companies can leverage it to their greatest advantage
will place you in a unique position within your organization.
Typically, organizations learn by doing. They attempt to implement a partial EDI solution by hiring
an outside consultant or vendor. But without a broad understanding of what EDI is and where it fits
in the larger scheme of things, time, money, and effort are almost inevitably wasted. It is very
difficult to hire a consultant or purchase a vendor's product when you don't really know what you're
buying. Costly and frustrating mistakes often lead to essential projects being abandoned; what could
have been a competitive advantage becomes a total loss.
There is a better solution. It is EDI Academy's unique two-day training course called "EDI Fundamentals
and Best Practices." After attending this course, you will have a solid understanding of what EDI is,
how companies use it, and how to make EDI work to solve your company's specific business challenges.
