Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is a set of standards that provides a common protocol for exchanging business documents, such as orders and invoices, electronically between you and your customers and vendors.
Why use EDI?
Many large retail customers expect businesses to be able to integrate with the systems they themselves use. QuickBooks Enterprise business management software lets you turn on Electronic Data Interchange so you can start exchanging invoices and sales orders with your larger customers or vendors.
Suppose you’re a small manufacturer selling products to large retailers for resale. EDI lets your computer system “talk” to your customer’s computer system so you can exchange documents such as purchase orders and invoices. So instead of faxing or e-mailing business documents back and forth, you can exchange them in a data format that can be read both by your retailers’ back end business systems and in your QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions software. Because you don’t have to manually reenter data, you’ll have fewer data entry errors and transaction processing problems.
The TrueCommerce EDI solution is included with your QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions software. EDI can help you to grow your business by providing the kind of technology that large customers require.
Go to the Customers menu and click Learn about EDI Options to find out more about how this service can benefit your business.
