When faced with the difficult task of selecting the best EDI software solution to fit your requirements, we can provide guidance based on our experience implementing EDI software.
It is important to remember that an EDI solution does not have to be implemented in house. There are many third party EDI hosting companies that do a good job mapping and handling communications. The initial effort can still be considerable if an interface must be built between the ERP and the host company.
Each approach must be evaluated based on company resources, the number of EDI trading partners and volume of transactions.
