EDI now must for B2B collaboration in apparel sector

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is fast becoming a standard requirement for business-to-business collaboration across the apparel industry. Essentially, EDI refers to the exchange of electronic business documents between two companies, providing a common ‘language' that allows vendors and suppliers to communicate with each other electronically. In the pressurised and highly competitive apparel industry, companies are starting to expect their suppliers/business partners to be competent in EDI to increase business efficiency.

Apparel ERP software system, Sync, has recently released its EDI module, which allows its clients to connect seamlessly with their vendors and customers in order to exchange business-critical information electronically.

Although EDI is used by the majority of large companies, the use of EDI in mid-sized business has been very limited or non-existent. EDI automates activities that are manually being performed and one of the main benefits of EDI is the elimination of manual data entry, which results in a significant reduction of errors and a dramatic increase in productivity.

Sync's EDI module ensures its clients will work smarter, faster and more cost-effectively by automating the sending and receiving of purchase orders, invoices, ASNs and other EDI documents. One of the unique aspects is that it uses a flexible XML interface, which allows users to create their own specific EDI documents by mapping EDI formats.

The addition of this module to Sync is yet another example of how the development team behind Sync is constantly working at updating the software system to ensure it remains ahead of its competition and continues to meet the ever-changing needs and demands of the apparel industry.
