Summit’s Electronic Data Interchange allows for efficient electronic communication via a value-added network (VAN). EDI is available for large corporate customers and manufacturers who request it.

EDI transactions offer key competitive advantages, such as:

  • Improved accuracy in transactions
  • Increased order efficiency
  • Synchronized product and pricing data
  • Reduced expenses like manual data entry, processing costs and handling costs
  • Improved accounts receivable/payable processing
