San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 23, 2013
Beacon EDI, a cloud EDI solution provider, already has the most extensive blog in the EDI industry with over 200 postings, the blog has a new posting every single day. However, Beacon plans to attract global attention by posting feeds in Spanish and the Mandarin language.
Alex Perlin, of Beacon EDI noted, “We believe EDI is still under-utilized in Central and South America. We hope that our EDI-best practice postings in Spanish will educate potential EDI users how EDI can help their organizations be more productive.”
A lot of retailers in the US are asking their vendors based out of China to be more self-reliant on vendor compliance and are requiring them to implement direct-imports. A direct-import vendor from China is required to be compliant with the retailer’s vendor-compliance policies. This includes EDI. “A lot of vendors in China see EDI as another mandate without understanding all the benefits that it has to offer. With our Mandarin blog we hope to communicate to the vendors in China that EDI can actually help them increase productivity and reduce error-rates in their business transactions such as 850 Purchase Orders, 810 Invoices and 856 Advanced Ship Notices (ASN),” Alex Perlin adds.
Beacon’s target market includes the small-to-medium size vendors of the retail and manufacturing industries. These vendors can be anywhere from Queens, NY to El Salvador. Shenzhen is a major city in the south of Southern China's Guangdong Province, situated immediately north of Hong Kong. There are a lot of vendors there who are required to be EDI compliant without understanding all the benefits that EDI has to offer.
