Being that it’s the 21st century and that we are already well into the digital age, it makes sense that your company would operate using a wide range of different software platforms. In fact, you may actively hunt out as many as possible in an effort to do better by your customers and stay a step ahead of your competition.

Unfortunately, what a lot of people learn the hard way is that everything from vendor compliance to product tracking can actually be made a lot harder by adding too much software into the mix. Perhaps you’ve begun to notice something like this as well. Even though software is meant to make your business easier to run, it’s having the opposite effect.

This is where Electronic Data Interchange methods become so important. To put it simply, this is a method of ensuring that all your platforms are able to essentially communicate with one another without getting in their own way.

So if you need a tool to help all of you software work together, start investing in EDI. You should do so before ever spending another dime on technology that may end up only getting in the way if you’re not careful.


If you’re interested in your business succeeding at a higher level or you simply want to make sure your software isn’t getting in the way, call ACT Data Services Inc. to learn about EDI compliance and how it can help your organization.
