The WebEDI Solution
The implementation and use of a WebEDI solution, such as the one offered by INPOSIA, brings many advantages, such as the easy exchange of automated and structured messages with companies. Nevertheless, there are some points to consider when using WebEDI.
In this blog post, we’ll inform you about the key challenges that need to be considered by using WebEDI solutions. If you are well prepared, you will be able to easily and quickly work around these challenges and be able to use your WebEDI solution without any problems.
The main Challenges
Availability of real-time information
To ensure efficient use of the WebEDI solution, suppliers must always be up to date and informed as quickly as possible about new circumstances. Above all, they must be able to have real-time access to current order information and order changes. In addition, the solution should allow suppliers to send electronic purchase order responses in addition to shipping notifications and invoices.
If you can implement these measures, the process will result in significantly improved data transparency for all parties involved.
Companies mainly opt for a WebEDI solution in order to minimize the manual effort of the business process. On the one hand, of course, this initially poses the challenge of integrating the solution appropriately into your own system, but on the other hand, it represents an enormous advantage for your company due to the minimization of effort. However, the system should be designed in such a way that it is also as useful as possible for the business partners because this increases the acceptance of WebEDI and it also leads to more and more implementing the solution themselves. In addition, the automated solution can avoid and eliminate basic manual input errors.
On the one hand, a WebEDI solution naturally offers flexibility, but on the other hand, flexibility can also be a challenge at the same time. Due to the very dynamic development of digitization, there are constant innovations in the digital world and companies must adapt their business processes to the new circumstances. Here, it is particularly important to be able to make appropriate adjustments to WebEDI. If a WebEDI supplier does want to switch to classic EDI, this should be made possible by the company’s solution. In addition, new document types should be able to be connected to the solution without any problems.
A WebEDI solution should also offer the option to extend the solution, e.g. with a Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) function that enables modules for audit management or supplier self-disclosure.
You are now aware of the main challenges when using a WebEDI solution. If you prepare well, then nothing will stand in the way of using such a solution efficiently and without problems.
