Getting the most from electronic trading
The more customers you can trade with electronically will better support your efficiency goals and better manage process. Getting customers on-boarded to trade electronically means assessing each customer’s capabilities and how best to interact with them which can be time consuming. Similarly, a customer may have very strict ways they will trade which you need to comply with.
Simplification of standards and electronic trading approaches
After understanding what capabilities customers may have it then come to the time where on-boarding the EDI capable customers commences, of course this process may occur over months or even years. However, you will then need to either dictate electronic trading processes which can mean slower roll-outs or you can spend time managing multiple connectivity methods or document formats, all slow going to manage in-house and usually you need to fall into-step with your customer’s approach.
Specific trading circumstances
You may as an organisation have a very broad customer base. This means what you sell may vary from customer to customer in terms of how you trade with them. Do you sell off the shelf or manufactured to order, or both? The document set you trade with customers will dictate how the process works and each customer will support different document set requirements.
