How does e-business work?

Companies are integrating themselves within the globalized worldwide economic streams in different ways. One of these ways is also the implementation of electronic or computerized interchange of data and of documents respectively.

Electronic interchange of documents (EDI) is providing the suitable base for the swift and efficient interchange of information between information systems without errors. When using standard messages or documents respectively is the electronic interchange enabling also the use of common language between information systems of different organizations wherever in the world.

Example of how does it function

Example of functionality of electronic interchange of information in retail shop:

  2. Buyer is sending electronic order to the supplier and supplier is obtaining the order directly into its information system.
  3. Based on the electronic order, supplier is preparing the ordered goods and the electronic bill of delivery and is sending this document to the buyer. Electronic bill of delivery may contain the structure of the consignment and other data on delivered goods (date of use, number of series and lots etc.)
  4. Buyer is receiving all these details in its information system. At the take over and acceptance of the goods he is confirming the electronic delivery bill and is sending to the supplier the electronic certificate of receipt.
  5. Supplier is issuing the electronic invoice based on the received electronic certificate of receipt.
