Automating the extended supply chain and improving the connectivity of your systems has become increasingly complicated as technology has evolved. With the great number of new technologies being used to exchange information in trade and business networks, many believe that EDI has grown obsolete. In a recent study, Supply Chain Insights recently conducted a study of individuals currently using EDI/XML and knowledgeable of B2B connectivity in the order-to-cash and/or procure-to-pay processes. The study benchmarked the use, cost, trends and performance of EDI/XML as a B2B solution at mid-to-large sized companies across various industries around the globe.
Join Lora Cecere for a review of the findings of the recent report including key metrics and analysis of the latest trends in supply chain automation. The webinar will examine what respondents considered the major benefits of EDI and XML, the relative associated cost compared to alternative options and the opportunities and barriers for greater adoption. Cecere will also offer best practices for using EDI and XML in B2B e-commerce and help evaluate the effectiveness of an organisation’s existing EDI programs.
