In today’s business environment, B2B integration is a key to success; in fact, many companies will no longer do business with you if you can’t do business electronically.
While many businesses have incorporated emails and faxes into their B2B communication, these processes still involve human handling and are thus slow and prone to error. Although they provide improvements over postal mail-based processes, they lack the power and functionality of e-commerce. Business-to-business (B2B) electronic commerce (e-commerce), which includes EDI (Electronic Data Interchange), XML (Extensible Markup Language), and online catalogues, has enabled the integration of companies throughout the world into communities of business partners (often called trading partners) with benefits for all.
Download this eBook for an in-depth analysis of EDI and how evolved electronic communication has changed the way companies conduct business with each other.
