Electronic Data Interchange - EDI
EDI stands for Electronic Data Interchange. EDI is the computer-to-computer exchange of business documents between companies and replaces the faxing and mailing of paper documents. EDI documents use specific computer record formats, which are based on widely accepted standards. However, each company may use the flexibility allowed by the standards in a unique way to best suit their business needs.
