Electronic Data Interchange

Services & Tools Take the next step of communication with us!

Good connections benefit everyone. We connect the dots.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) allows for an automated electronic interchange of standardised business documents between you and the ERP system of KTR Systems. EDI replaces manual processes of order placement and distribution creating smooth electronic trading between buyer and supplier. EDI replaces classic paper documents by electronic documents.

The direct data transmission from one computer to another ensures high process reliability. Transmission errors by manual entry is avoided, since the process takes place fully automatically.

EDI eliminates waiting time that is associated with manual processing, provides information on products and stock level in real time, generates benchmarks for future sales forecasts and reduces overhead costs by creating an efficient business process.

You will have our full support with establishing and using EDI.
