SAP EDI Transactions

SAP EDI, short for Electronic Data Interchange, facilitates the electronic exchange of business transactional documents across diverse applications. Serving as an industry standard, it defines electronic documents, enabling seamless automation of internal transactions between affiliated companies. This process is supported by intermediate documents known as IDOCs.

Electronic Data Interchange expedites the processing of inventory information and order statuses, ensuring timely updates. For instance, when a supplier delivers goods to a distributor, this transaction is swiftly processed within the distributor's systems, facilitating efficient management of operations.
