eCommerce

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) has been with us since the early 1980’s. We experience it every day when shopping at the local supermarket or retail park. An itemised till receipt is produced because a standardised item number or code is scanned by the checkout assistant. It saves time and money and impacts on the way the goods are reordered and replenished in the individual store, the regional wholesale and distribution chain as well as manufacturing and supply.
