Are you a bit vague about EDI?

A series of free podcasts has come to the aid of Finance and IT managers who are a bit rusty on the latest initiatives in electronic data integration.

The majority of well managed businesses are rapidly expanding their electronic data integration (EDI) arrangements with suppliers and customers, enabling them to carry lower stocks, ensure quicker payment and save administrative overheads in their finance departments.

The truth is however, that many Finance and even some IT managers are vague on how the latest EDI systems work and the benefits that they can bring to business. Leading EDI provider First B2B Ltd has launched a series of podcasts to demystify the subject in a professional and non-technical way. The podcasts are entirely free and the first is now available on FirstB2Bs website

First B2B Chairman Richard Ward says, Gone are the days when EDI represented just another headache for the Finance Director and his IT staff. The latest generation of Software as a Service (SaaS) EDI systems work so that the complexities of EDI are removed for both trading partners, they are easy to set up and even easier to maintain. We hope that these podcasts will help Finance and IT managers up the learning curve to understanding what is now possible.
