Top apparel exporter Brandix has set up an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) system in tandem with its business partner, Marks & Spencer (M&S) using Microsoft’s BizTalk Server.
Microsoft said in a statement that the Brandix ICT team worked closely with M&S to pilot and adopt the EDI solution.
Over a period of six months, both teams charted out their business requirements and the Brandix ICT team then set about its own R&D to identify the ideal EDI technology and how the solution should be structured to meet both current and future requirements of the business.EDI is an important aspect when considering Business to Business (B2B) systems integration in the modern world of electronic commerce.
It often allows a company that initially implements Electronic Data Interchange to handle far bigger volumes without adding employees and other costs. This means increased sales and increased revenues once the initial investment in EDI is recaptured.
