EDI and eCommerce consulting
A prevalent industry in today’s economy is that of electronic data interchange, or EDI. It is a multi-billion dollar industry that takes accuracy and efficiency to implement and tackle. The need for this type of technology will steadily grow as adoption of eCommerce strategies are implemented. Electronic b2b (business-to-business) transaction implementation takes a bit of preparation before figuring out the best route of action. This is why Aristotle’s Alexander specializes in EDI consulting.
Standards were implemented to manage the exchange of business data, like that of Automatic Funds Transfer (AFT) and EDI. Before these standards were implemented, archaic telecommunications networked exchanged business data in proprietary formats. This method was problematic because it was inefficient and changed often when companies upgraded systems. After enough inefficiency was had, ANSI (American National Standards Institute) ASC (Accredited Standards Committee) released version 1 of the X12 EDI standards. Electronic Data Interchange for Administration, Commerce and Transport (EDIFACT) was developed by the UN for countries outside the US. Both of these standards are adhered to in our integration and are a large part of what forms eCommerce EDI development.
Although these standards create a clear-cut definition of what it takes to participate in EDI or AFT, tackling your business needs has to be dealt with before hand to figure out the best approach to this type of solution.
