What is EDI?

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the automated, computer-to-computer exchange of standard electronic documents (such as invoices, purchase orders, etc.) between business partners over a secure, standardized connection.

There are two common standards used as EDI documents, X12 for communication in USA and EDIFAT for communication in Europe.
