We have been working with two suppliers new to providing invoices to retailers in an electronic form. We have agreed of file formats and data transfer processes which will save our customers hours every month.
What is most exciting about this is that this is new ground for the two suppliers involved so they have been learning about how to create electronic invoices while discovering how much their customers will love them when they receive invoices electronically rather than having to manually load stock.
It is odd to me that here we are in 2007 and having to pitch the idea of electronic invoices to suppliers. Still, we’ve done it and once the data starts flowing I am sure the supplier will knock on the door of other software companies to have them support their EDI files.
