Frequently asked questions.

“How can I tell what type of EDI solution is right for my business?”

Choosing the right EDI solution comes down to a central question: Is EDI a core competency of your business? In other words, does having in-house EDI capabilities help give you a competitive advantage in the marketplace? For many businesses, EDI is not a core competency or something they want to focus on. If that sounds like your situation, outsourcing your EDI operations is the best choice.

“What is the difference between full-service EDI and other EDI solutions?”

There are two types of cloud EDI solutions: managed EDI services and full-service EDI. A managed EDI service is a cloud-based solution in which the provider is responsible for developing and maintaining the core technology, while your internal staff is responsible for the day-to-day customization, optimization and operations of the technology. In contrast, full-service EDI is a cloud-based solution and associated staffing resources that customize, optimize and operate the technology. In the full-service model, you outsource your EDI to a third-party provider that carries out the EDI function on your behalf.

“Does full-service EDI cost more than other EDI options?”

No. Outsourcing your EDI to a third-party expert actually costs less over time. When evaluating EDI providers, it’s important to make an apples-to-apples comparison so you can tell what is included with your solution. Full-service EDI solutions include access to EDI experts that help manage and optimize your solution. This reduces the need for in-house EDI staff, and also saves time and resources by minimizing required data entry.
