Electronic Data interchange (EDI)

Futura EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) replaces the paper trail, generated by buying and logistics functions, with instant electronic messaging between computer systems, to manage the information flow with your supplier.  EDI gives you reduced costs and shorter order cycle times, streamlined inventory management and fewer errors.

Normally, time consuming business documentation and data entry tasks including purchase orders, invoices and dispatch notes are completely automated, improving accuracy and responsiveness. With EDI you have complete access to a supplier’s product catalogue, created automatically within Futura — a huge time saving.

Fully compliant with EDIFACT, the ISO standard for electronic data interchange, Futura’s EDI module is pre-configured and ready to go. If you are trading in Europe or internationally, EDI is essential and key to creating competitive advantage.
