GS1 eCom is our term for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). This gives your business or small/medium enterprise (SME) e-interchange of data messages.
EDI enables online exchanges of documents between businesses and SMEs, regardless of software. EDI uses standardized messaging to achieve a common language.
Despite the hundreds of Egyptian businesses investing in auto-programs and ERP systems, results show that standardization-levels are low, so return on investment is compromised. Current auto/semi-auto practices all too often end with hard-copy invoices or purchase orders being faxed or hand-delivered! GS1 eCom is changing all this with standardized messaging for e-business.
