Discover how CYOP's open source and cloud based EDI services allow businesses to improve efficiency, lower costs and decrease time to receive payment.
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the process of using computers to exchange business documents between companies in place of traditional methods such as fax machines and the postal service.
While there are numerous benefits to implementing an EDI system, the costs of acquiring and managing the necessary software, appropriate hardware, and technical staff needed to manage the environment can be notable.
CYOP launched its Cloud Based EDI service to help smaller companies yield the benefits of EDI without having to incur the significant start-up costs, and to help larger companies expand their existing EDI footprint without having to expand infrastructure and support staff.
CYOP's Cloud Based EDI service is a full and robust EDI application delivered via a hosted sofware-as-a-service (SaaS) model.
There are several ways to transmit EDI documents using CYOP's Cloud Based EDI service and can be as simple as sending/receiving an email or completing a simple web form.
All standard EDI protocols are supported including Edifact, AS/2, X12, XML-RPC, SAP IDoc, and others; and all common communication protocols are also supported so the use of a VAN is not needed unless required by your trading partner.
If your trading partner does require the use of a VAN, CYOP's Cloud Based EDI service provides full VAN connectivity and services at some of the lowest rates in the industry.
CYOP's cloud EDI service does not require any proprietary software to be installed on your computers, and because it runs in a standard web browser, it's compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, and any device with Internet access, including SmartPhones!
