The Low-cost XML based EDI solution

EDI (or Electronic Data Interchange) is the transfer of data by electronic means from one computer to another, or from one organisation to another.

In todays global economy every business faces constant pressure to improve the quality of its products or services while at the same time having to significantly reduce costs. More and more trading partners are insisting on electronic communications, effectively shutting the door on small businesses that do not have the resources or in-house technical ability to implement an electronic sales ordering and invoicing system. Implementing an EDI system across a company and group of associated trading partners can be a complex and daunting project to undertake, particularly with the financial outlay that is generally required.

AvocadoEDI provides a simple and low-cost solution to implementing an EDI system. The out-of-the-box EDI system is completely free, and can provide sales order and invoice processing, and handle data communications between you and your trading partners. Installation and set up is straightforward with only a basic level of technical knowledge required. Alternatively, contact us to arrange demos, training or installation.
