As an entrepreneur, you always want to keep up to date with what your consumers and other businesses want. In the current world of modern business, people expect the Amazon experience. More and more businesses and consumers are expecting the ability to submit orders electronically and track them online. It’s become increasingly commonplace to send delivery confirmations, invoices, and all other transactions online as opposed to relying on traditional postal options. The process is called electronic data interchange (EDI), and employing EDI could give you a competitive advantage over your rivals.
