EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is the electronic document exchange between trade partners.

Reducing the manipulation of paper and avoiding the double imputation of the data, EDI highly optimizes the flow of information and, for this reason, it is strongly utilized in almost every working area.

Demand of EDI services is very strong and VTE made great efforts in order to encounter the increasing demand by its customers and partners.
The advantages deriving from the use of the EDI are remarkable.

Among these:

  • drastic reduction of times required for the exchange of information
  • drastic reduction of errors and greater precision of the information transmitted 
  • cost savings compared with the traditional management and transmission of documents.
