EDI Partnering and EDITs™

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners has grown consistently over the last decade. Today's customers are compelled to reduce costs by exchanging fast electronic data with their supply chain to eliminate manual interface errors and decrease cycle times.

Companies trying to maintain their communication links to customers and suppliers find it more difficult as technology and employee skills continuously change. Northrop Grumman is an expert in EDI at all levels and has the infrastructure in place to assure performance for your customers. Because of this convenience, outsourcing this area of business at an attractive price has been a preferred option for many of our clients.

Because this electronic data could include EDI, Eforms, Email, RF Bar Code Tags, Auto Faxing, and, more recently, XML formats that conform to standard internet communications, many companies have struggled to keep up with changing formats and making those formats compatible between systems.
