      Thanks for the comment Sam. We totally agree with you! EDI allows employees to move away from manual data entry to focus on their core tasks and projects. More and more, large retailers and enterprises are forcing their suppliers and customers to be EDI-compliant. We’ll be seeing a lot more businesses make this switch and we believe they’ll be happier for it.
