Infocon Systems

For over 40 years EDI has been considered mission critical infrastructure across nearly every industry. While there are a small percentage of companies still managing EDI inhouse, because of the support intensive nature of EDI most companies have outsourced their EDI operations over the last several years. From an infrastructure and personnel perspective, outsourcing allows companies to focus on their core business, and is simply more cost effective.

As market demands continually press for quicker product deliveries and real-time transaction and inventory visibility, ERP and EDI providers alike have responded by providing more sophisticated technology to speed up transaction cycles. Emerging integration solutions help to further eliminate re-keying of data, resulting in a faster order to cash cycle, less errors, and better overall customer service levels. Come see us in our virtual booth to hear about best practices based on recent Infocon and VAI customer implementations, and discussions around integrated solutions utilizing the latest API based technology supporting VAI's S2K Enterprise.
