EDI Outsourcing vs In-House EDI
To understand the benefits of EDI outsourcing, you also need to understand the various EDI options available to you and your business:
In-House EDI requires that you manage the EDI operations which includes IT resources, costs associated with hosting your own servers and hardware, setup and ongoing costs for licensing, technology, security, routine maintence and additional expenses of hiring in-house experts.
Generally, In-House EDI is pre-purchased software that is hosted, managed, and operated via internal resources. In-House EDI typically has high costs during both the set-up process, and for ongoing license fees. On top of this, In-House EDI requires full-time technical support, further increasing both monetary and operational costs.
Outsourced EDI: Full outsourced EDI solutions involve a third-party organization that provides a full suite of EDI software and services. Outsourced EDI providers typically require less initial and ongoing cost, with slightly less customizability when compared to In-House EDI.
When choosing an outsourced solution, the provider, will take responsibility for all necessary set up procedures and software like the software itself, EDI mapping, licenses, maintenance contracts, and of course all the technical resources that come with it.
EDI Outsourcing also ensures highly accurate and secure data, which is important when hundreds of orders are transmitted on a regular basis. Consistent EDI compliance is also extremely important in avoiding costly chargebacks. Working with an EDI provider can help you remain compliant with all your retailers, even when their requirements change.
