How does EDI work?

Electronic data interchange replaces previous order processes such as mail, fax or email by electronically exchanging documents between two companies with different internal systems. A translator will convert the business application data to and from another data format between the trading partners. Trading partners are two separate entities, i.e. supplier vs. buyer. The order processing life cycle is shortened significantly by creating a link between computer systems of different entities.
