EDI for Retail

retail edi

The most demanding supply chain in the world is the web of sellers, suppliers, distributors, and transporters serving the retail industry.  The volume of products and the speed at which products move from production to consumer is unmatched.

Retailer sellers face a competitive marketplace of easy online price discovery and multiple options for delivery.  Products and their speedy movement in the supply chain have to have a very low level of defects. The focus on quality and speed includes the information flow between businesses. EDI is the electronic format of choice for the exchange of business documents moving through the retail EDI supply chain.

Virtually every retailer demands EDI capability from their suppliers. Web-based EDI solutions from CovalentWorks enable small businesses to become compliant with the requirements of any retail trading partner. Thousands of clients rely on CovalentWorks.
