In any industry, a business can move only as fast as its database will allow it. And chemicals aren’t your everyday industry. At SolvChem Custom Packaging Division, we use what’s known as electronic data interchange, or EDI, to manage our most complex processes. It’s one of the many ways we’re able to offer stellar services for customers in every industrial sector. Find out more about how EDI for the chemical industry is a key distinguisher, and learn how we put it to use on your behalf.
What Is Electronic Data Interchange for the Chemical Industry?
The chemical blending and distribution industry is famously complex. You’re juggling any number of customer orders, all the while maintaining product integrity and keeping everyone involved safe. One way to do that is to lean on the technologies available. Electronic data interchange is our way of managing every step of the process in a consistent, electronic manner. But what does that mean?
For our customers, that means a uniform way to submit your purchase order with clear instructions for our team. That same system generates an invoice. Because of EDI, this is all done instantaneously and without involving a person. How is this useful for you? Keep reading and find out.
The Benefits of EDI for Chemical Industry Customers
Customers value the human touch, and we don’t sacrifice that for a minute. But when it comes to the tedious tasks of ordering and invoices, an automated system can make a world of difference. Here’s how.
- It reduces human error. When you consider the volume of chemical product orders and the subsequently generated invoicing documents, you’re looking at mountains of paperwork. Even the most careful forms processor can make a mistake. For SolvChem Custom Packaging Division customers, however, those mistakes are not acceptable. EDI is designed such that the element of human error is all but removed from the ordering and invoicing processes.
- It’s more efficient. One of the reasons our customers keep coming back is that we make it easy to do business. In short, we don’t waste your time. EDI streamlines otherwise tedious processes so you can focus on running your business.
- It saves you money. When you look at the increase in efficiency and the significant reductions in time used to process orders, it adds up to reduced costs. What’s more, because it is entirely electronic, costs related to paper, printer ink, storage, postage and filing are all but eliminated.
