NewEDI-Sponsored Research Examines State of Electronic Data Interchange in U.S.

More EDI Investments Planned as Average Implementation Costs Drop 16 Percent

ALPHARETTA, GA--(Marketwired - June 10, 2014) - NewEDI today released research results from a study titled "Current Status of Electronic Data Interchange in the U.S." The study focuses on current uses of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), reasons for adoption and strengths and weaknesses of current EDI providers/Value-Added Networks (VANs). Visit NewEDI.com to download a summary of the study.

The study is based upon research conducted by Professor Richard Vlosky of Louisiana State University which surveyed 780 companies representative of over two dozen manufacturing and service sectors. Of these companies, 60 percent currently utilize some form of EDI service or technology:

  • 25 percent use Internet EDI exclusively (AS2 or EDIINT) with no plans to invest in VAN
  • 29 percent use one or more VANs
  • 37 percent use both VAN and Internet EDI
  • 9 percent use Internet EDI but have plans to use EDI VAN in the future

Companies still face customer mandates and consider future investments in Internet-based EDI or Value Added Networks.   

"Widespread adoption of EDI is believed to increase the economic welfare of an industry or a network of companies in a supply chain," said Dr. Vlosky. "By understanding the factors affecting Value-Added Network (VAN) selection, companies can more effectively evaluate potential EDI providers, and EDI solution providers can better understand and serve the needs of the market."

"EDI remains a valuable technology solution for the growing challenges companies face in supply chain operations and business partner relationships," said Kevin Rathie, CEO of NewEDI. "The study indicates that small and mid-sized businesses need help navigating the complexity of available EDI options to find the right solutions at the best possible price. NewEDI is here to help under-served, over-charged companies realize the organizational benefits of frictionless commerce."

Average Implementation Costs Drop for both Small and Large Enterprises

Compared to 2010, companies with less than $10 million in revenue saw initial implementation costs drop 17 percent in 2013 while companies earning over $500 million saw costs drop 15 percent. This decrease in implementation costs might favor smaller companies faced with a higher number of trading partners.
