Why Consider EDI Outsourcing or B2B Integration Managed Services?
Your company’s EDI or B2B Integration operations team is faced with a seemingly endless number of demands, changes and challenges, including:
- Mandates for supporting new connectivity such as AS2, protocols, or data formats
- Keeping up with trading partner changes and requests
- Changes in source data from ERP, accounting or other systems
- Updates to EDI or B2B integration software
- The addition of new trading partners
- System reliability and performance
And when it comes to EDI and B2B integration systems, managing changes and keeping performance at ideal levels can be a daunting task for IT departments—particularly those with a large number of trading partners. Technology teams are typically stretched thin with multiple priorities, and keeping EDI and B2B processes running smoothly is just one aspect of their job.
