COVID Impact  

Growing Digital Shift Amid COVID-19 Pandemic to Boost Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the market during the years 2020 and 2021. Several business functions across verticals have been adversely affected including the electronic data interchange process. The industries such as retail, logistics, manufacturing, and healthcare witnessed drastic changes in their ways of operations and customer management amid the pandemic. However, the significant changes and growing demand for smoother supply chain processes are anticipated to surge the demand for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) software.

The retail, healthcare, and other industrial sectors have started adopting cloud-based data exchange software to offer lifetime access to the data. Globally, government bodies along with organizations are focused on enrolling recovery actions for the post-COVID-19 impact. According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), in April 2020, contactless digital payment means such as quick response (QR) codes, near-field communications (NFC), facial recognition, and others helped various countries to cope with the COVID-19 crisis, thus propelling the use of electronic paperless transactions. Various companies are opting for innovative contact-less solutions to avoid the spread of coronavirus. For instance, in January 2022, Microsoft Corporation in partnership with FedEx Corp. launched a logistics-as-a-service cross-platform. This platform integrates with different order management applications such as online e-commerce marketplaces, enterprise resource planning, electronic data interchange, and other ordering channels. Thus, the demand for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) software is predicted to grow significantly to offer an efficient customer experience in the coming years.

Incorporating Advanced Technologies to Boost Market Expansion

The incorporation of advanced technologies in EDI systems has triggered a new path for the data interchange process, offering several benefits to businesses. Data interchange transactions are crucial to the B2B and B2C processes, from small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to large organizations as they offer better integration for the SMEs with larger firms.   The future of the retail supply chain entirely depends on technological innovations, namely the Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, and Artificial Intelligence (AI), among others.

The key benefits delivered by advanced solutions through B2B integration and automation are as follows:

  • Saves time and money by automating the traditional manual electronic data process

  • Improves efficiency and productivity with greater accuracy

  • Reduces errors by automating the data formatting process

  • Improves traceability and reporting to support data collection, visibility, and analysis

  • Supports positive customer experiences with a reliable product and service delivery

Thus, the digital technology implementation enabled by AI and IoT is augmenting the data exchange process and is likely to boost Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) software market growth.


Increasing Adoption by Small & Medium Businesses to Drive EDI Software Market Growth

The Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) software aids small and medium organizations to automate several transactions with other companies that occur frequently, including exchanging invoices, orders, and advanced shipping notices. The inventory software solution also aids to manage the various solutions, creating fully integrated, end-to-end, and automated EDI solutions. This significantly increases the productivity, efficiency, and profitability of smaller and mid-sized businesses by enabling fully-automated transaction processing, augmenting the market worldwide.

The software enables small organizations to enhance customer satisfaction and brand loyalty by offering online recommendations. Also, it helps small organizations to seamlessly transact with large organizations across the globe by solving technical and business connection requirements productively and efficiently. As per the statistics shared by the Global Standard One (GS1), in 2019, the U.K. grocery business saved around USD 470 million by using software solutions. The software aided in fastening transactions, delivery, payment, and invoicing, as well as improving the visibility of goods in the supply chain.


Threat of Application Programming Interface (API) as a Substitute to Inhibit Market Growth

Electronic data interchange solutions offer a basic exchange of business documents using multiple standard electronic formats via computers between business partners. It is feasible to carry on similar transactions using API, such as sending order stock, and invoices, and carrying out other similar processes, thus creating a substitute for the traditional data interchange systems. APIs are often faster, flexible, and cost-effective than electronic data, and are typically synchronous and boast smaller payloads. An API is integrated with a REST (Representational state transfer), a systematic architectural style, that is easy to modify for developers as per the necessity. It also offers a safe and trusted data exchange service, wherein it is also useful to track the data or order stock that has been lost and is hence emerging as a potential substitute threat for the technology.
