EDI, the technology of the future: 25 years and counting

EDITEL celebrates 25 years EDI and eXite®

EDI is the digital backbone of sophisticated supply chain management that ensures that any kind of articles can be ordered, are delivered and invoiced as needed with pinpointed accuracy, each and every day. EDI puts our fa-vorite products on the shelves at all times. In a nutshell: EDI has evolved to become an indispensable technology for the procurement of goods.

This year, this top-notch technology is celebrating its 25th birthday! For this anniversary EDI-provider EDITEL Austria invited customers, partners and EDI-pioneers for a festive dinner on September, 20th 2012: Peter Franzmair, CEO EDITEL Austria: „The last 25 years have been a success story for our company and we are proud to have been a part of this development from the very first moment. We are particularly happy that the companies who made the first EDI-steps with us still belong to the most active EDI-users. For this reason we do not want to dwell on the past, but look towards the future to seek out and optimize together the big potential of EDI for a sustainable supply chain“

The first EDI service, ECODEX, which has evolved to become the eBusiness platform eXite®, was introduced in 1987. As of today, more than 10,000 companies all over Central and Eastern Europe process more than 250 million transactions per year. What started out as an initiative spearheaded by the FMCG industry is now used by many companies in a large variety of industries: food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, clothing/athletic gear as well as construction and banking. Every day, new companies become EDI users. Across Central and Eastern Europe, numerous initiatives designed to advance this technology have been introduced, in an effort to reach a fully automated and ultimately paperless supply chain.
