EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is a standardized data exchange format that allows retail buyers to send purchase orders and modifications to a brand or supplier, and vice versa. The primary benefit of EDI is that it allows the automation of order flow, and it can help the retailer manage inventory on a real-time basis. Implementing EDI compatibility can be a challenging task for new brands, and working with an experienced manufacturers’ rep can greatly ease this burden.
