Dell Boomi EDI Managed Service Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) replaces cumbersome, paper-based processes, such as purchasing, invoicing, and fulfillment, with electronic communication. As a result, EDI streamlines your supply chain, reducing your inventory requirements, speeding the realization of revenue, lowering costs, and minimizing the risk of errors. That's why Walmart, Best Buy, and other leaders in their markets make EDI a requirement for their business partners. Because EDI is critical to your business, it must run reliably, error free, and at peak performance. Any errors or service disruptions can have serious business consequences. But implementing and managing an EDI system can be cost prohibitive and cumbersome, and requires highly specialized skills. Now, with Dell Boomi EDI Managed Service, you can enjoy all the benefits of EDI with the peace of mind of managed service. Dell Boomi EDI specialists will take the EDI system administration burden off your shoulders and ensure that your systems are running optimally at all times. You don't have to acquire and retain specialized (and increasingly rare) EDI skills in your organization. Instead, you can focus your resources on your core competencies and accelerate your business growth. Cost-effective Solution for Your Growing Business As you add customers and trading partners to your growing business, your EDI transaction volume also increases. Most EDI managed solution vendors charge based on transaction volume. So, as your business grows and your transaction volume increases, your costs skyrocket — making it difficult for you to estimate your operating costs as well as cutting into profit margins. With Dell Boomi EDI Managed Service, you pay a fixed subscription fee based on the number of production processes you run — not a variable fee based on the number of transactions processed. That means you can increase transaction volumes as you grow your business, without a corresponding cost increase. It also means your costs are predictable, so you can accurately budget. What's more, you can increase your ecosystem footprint as you grow your business by adding new trading partners, without increasing your cost. That's because, unlike our competitors, Dell Boomi does not charge to add trading partners. Increased Business Agility To be competitive in today's highly dynamic business environment, you need to respond quickly to seasonal changes, new product introductions, new distribution opportunities, and other changing business conditions. The Dell Boomi EDI Managed Solution is built on Boomi's industry leading multi-tenant AtomSphere® platform. This enables our EDI experts to onboard a new trading partner in as little as two weeks compared to the one to three months required by competing solutions. Need to make changes to your existing processes? Because we own the Dell Boomi AtomSphere® platform, our EDI experts can modify your processes inline in near real time, whereas our competitors take from three to five days.
