Most of the organizations are using Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)? Why are they using it? I would like to have some principles for lay-outing EDI documents. I also like to know what kind of documents EDI supports. Your suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi,

 Glad to see you interested in EDI. This new standard has many uses, it is primary use is for structured data transmission between companies through electronic mediums. One great feature about it is that it can transfer databases between electronic devices without the intervention of human entities, such as checks, bank statements and other electronic documents.

It also has numerous security features which would be quite appropriate for an organization to employ and integrate into their systems. You can learn more about it here if you are interested in more standards and protocols: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_data_interchange.

Hello,

EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is data format based on ASC X12 standards which is being used to exchange specific data between more than one trading partner without human intervention. It is much more than email service. Even users can replace bills of landing and checks with EDI messages.

EDI implies a sequence of data shared between the two partners. Either the originator or the recipient. Human intervention in the process of receiving data is typically intended only for error conditions, quality review, and special situations. EDI supports ANSI(ASC)-X12, HIPAA, VICS, UCS, EDIFACT, TRADACOMM, XML etc.
