SAMPLE FINDING

· Target key suppliers first when implementing EDI/XML data exchange communications.

A leading logistics company carefully selects which suppliers it communicates with via EDI/XML standards. Suppliers using EDI/XML-encoded data usually provide large volume transactions and generally have more sophisticated operations. Currently, the company believes it is only worthwhile to pursue this electronic link with larger suppliers whose products can easily fit into the EDI/XML data exchange scheme and standardized computer fields. Even in EDI/XML data exchange communication, the company allows for some flexibility in standardization.
