If you work with EDI on a regular basis, you know that it is a technology that often doesn’t keep up with the modern enterprise’s needs for integration and scalability. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We’re excited to be presenting a webinar with Redwood Logistics who have created a new platform with MuleSoft that makes B2B communication easier for their customers.
What is EDI? It stands for Electronic Data Interchange, and is how businesses engage with one another to enable business to business communication.
The benefit of EDI is that it automates B2B communication, saving time and money. Traditionally you would have people receiving invoices and entering them in the system to send back, but now it’s all an automated process.Between a buyer’s internal system with its purchase order and the supplier’s internal system receiving the invoice, the seamless feedback loop requires no one to be there at all.
This is great, but as the world changes due to globalization, more efficient manufacturing, and other disruptive trends, many processes change. For example, distribution patterns can change, transportation runs are more frequent, and expectations of responsiveness increase when compared to traditional supply chain operations. How can you make sure your supply chain is agile and responsive to change?
Join us to learn about the future of EDI with Eric Rempel, the CIO of Redwood Logistics. You’ll learn how this organization overcame the challenges presented by B2B/EDI with MuleSoft, the best practices to apply API-led connectivity to B2B communication, and the results from Redwood’s digital transformation initiatives.
