ERP for Importers & Distributors
Provide your business with the tools you need to connect your teams, while making your supply chain more efficient and your business more profitable.
Electronic data interchange (EDI) has become THE way retailers and suppliers communicate in today's digital environment.
EDI allows users to digitize and organize their business documents in a standard electronic format. It is efficient and straightforward and major industry players often require it.
EDI replaces older communication systems like mail, fax and email with an electronic approach, enabling users to exchange necessary documents quickly and accurately while adapting to changing retailer requirements as they arise. EDI, when built into your ERP system, drives operational efficiencies, streamlines transactions, improves collaboration and fosters those ever-so-important trading partner relationships.
The Aptean Consumer Goods ERP provides the built-in EDI functionality you need. Real-time transmissions and integrated mapper give you full control over your EDI in a centralized location. Aptean also offers managed EDI services if you prefer to let industry experts handle mapping and day-to-day monitoring on your behalf.
