Explanation: Web EDI system

A web EDI system (Electronic Data Interchange over the Web) is a web-based system that enables the electronic exchange of business documents in a standardized format between business partners. This enables companies to optimize business processes and exchange data in a flexible, cost-effective and secure manner.

The main features and functions of a web EDI system include electronic data interchange, standardized formats, web-based access, interoperability, automation and security features such as encryption and authentication. In addition, their use can reduce costs as they often require less IT infrastructure and maintenance compared to traditional paper-based or proprietary EDI solutions.
