Time and cost reduction is an on-going priority within any business operation. To this end, modern business tools can be as important to productivity as any cutting tool.
The automation of routine business functions connected to trading with suppliers is a key activity since it can release significant administrative time – time better spent on the production process itself.
EDI is a business tool which has consistently demonstrated administrative cost savings - around 60% compared to paper-based systems.
It offers the potential for a lower stock inventory from shortened lead times. There is a lower risk of orders being held up because of transcription errors of article codes.
Such minor administrative issues can cause major disruptions to the production effort and this involves an altogether higher scale of cost and time.
