The computerisation of processes has made it possible to automate inter-company communications and simplified business transactions between companies and consumers.
The computerisation of processes has made it possible to automate inter-company communications and simplified business transactions between companies thanks to B2B (Business-to-business) processes as well as between companies and consumers or customers thanks to B2C (Business to Consumer or Customer) processes.
B2B processes identify a company’s relations with its suppliers or final customers within the management of procurement, planning and production-monitoring activities and in monitoring the progress of product processing, as well as its relations with subcontractors, so as to identify the flow within the production chain.
For several years, Goline has offered vertically integrated solutions in the field of fresh-food supply chain management, a sector which has seen exponential increase in transactional requests. We have developed a proprietary integrative engine which, by communicating with dedicated channels such as SFTP, FTP, SMTP, AS2 or Web Services, collects the records to be processed and, through customised business logics, permits mapping.
What is EDI (Electronic Data Interchange)?
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the computer-to-computer exchange of business documents in a standard electronic format between business partners.
By moving from a paper-based exchange of business document to one that is electronic, businesses enjoy major benefits such as reduced cost, increased processing speed, reduced errors and improved relationships with business partners.
The exchange of EDI documents is typically between two different companies, referred to as business partners or trading partners. For example, Company A may buy goods from Company B. Company A sends orders to Company B. Company A and Company B are business partners.
