How Your Business Can Improve Efficiency and Reduce Operational Costs by Integrating EDI with ERP

Mid-sized businesses have grown in sophistication, as have their needs for new business tools. Adoption of these new technologies and applications, formerly the exclusive domain of very large enterprises, is creating new problems for the mid-sized business. As ERP systems are being purchased by a growing number of organizations with fewer than 500 employees and less than $1B in annual revenues, ensuring that EDI data is properly migrated to the ERP system is becoming increasingly mission-critical.

The result of this rapid adoption causes a two-fold problem: first is an increasing set of data silos and repositories – each critical to business needs and each out of sync with the other data repositories in the organization. Manually re-keying data from legacy or web-based EDI systems into newly deployed ERP software increases error rates and associated costs. Second – and equally critical – is an increased strain on limited IT resources during system implementations and data migration; setting up new ERP systems and migrating EDI data from legacy applications into the ERP systems can be challenging, frustrating and a severe strain on limited IT staff and budgets. In fact, transformation of data from legacy systems into new ones can consume as much as 60% of an integration project budget.
