EDI

EDI stands for “Electronic Data Interchange” and means the following: “Electronic exchange of information between parties in the form of structured messages.”
This form of communication offers many advantages. Information transfer is reliable, more independent and ensures less work within your company.

Depending on the frequency and number of shipments, we have several EDI solutions which can mean great advantages for you. For every situation, however, the advantages are different. For this reason, we have only briefly described the possibilities here. Do you wish to know more about EDI? Then get in touch with your full-time Wim Bosman contact person. He/she will put you in contact with our ICT section.

EDI variants
  1. Web-EDI
  2. EDI via E-mail
  3. Integrated EDI

Web-EDI
Web-EDI works through the Internet. E-Shipment is a good example of Web-EDI and is a programme whereby shipments are passed on to us through the Internet. These shipments are stored on a central computer and sent afterwards by means of EDI connection to the Wim Bosman IT system and automatically processed. With Web-EDI, no investment is necessary, nor any extra IT knowledge.

EDI via E-mail
With EDI via E-mail, shipment data are emailed to us in a file with a standard layout. Wim Bosman's collaborators then import the file to our IT system. Setting up EDI via E-mail demands a relatively small investment and some IT knowledge.

Integrated EDI
With integrated EDI, EDI messages are exchanged directly between our system and the Wim Bosman IT system. Integrated EDI works with minimum human intervention, resulting in minimal risk of error. According to a standard determined in advance (EDIFACT), messages are created and are sent directly. If you have a large number of shipments, the costs for integrated EDI are repaid relatively quickly. Your company should, however, have some EDI knowledge.

Consequently, you can see that possibilities for rapid, efficient mutual communication exist.
