Web EDI is a great choice for small companies or start-ups that either have low document volumes or no ERP system of their own.
To use a Web EDI portal, all that is needed is Internet access, which makes the exchange of electronic business data with trading partners a straightforward and inexpensive process.
You will be ready to use EDI immediately after creating your account and you will be able to perform Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) with retail partners such as BILLA, dm drogeriemarkt, METRO, SPAR, MPREIS, and many others. Data is transferred in the correct EDI format via the EDI platform eXite®, ensuring that all electronic business documents are safely delivered and received.
For trading companies, EDITEL’s web EDI portal is a great choice because it allows them to also reach SMEs via EDI (-> see supplier portal)
