If your organization is evaluating integrating EDI with your business system or your organization is faced with the decision of continuing to maintain a custom built in-house EDI solution or replacing with a commercially available packaged solution, there are a few key questions that your organization should take into consideration:
1. Will your organization have the ability to adequately support a custom built solution?
2. Does your organization have sufficient knowledge of your ERP system to build a scalable and flexible integration?
3. How quickly can your organization onboard new trading partners?
4. How scalable is a custom built solution for your organization?
5. Is EDI a core competency for your organization?
