Update on EDI & Electronic Communication Teleconference Series Launch
By Susan Haupt, RVCF
RVCF has expanded it’s Open Forum teleconference offerings for 2020 with the launch of a new series of calls focused on EDI and Electronic Communications.
What makes these calls unique is that both Retailers and Merchandise Suppliers are eligible to attend. The fist session took place on January 15th with over 50 participants. Discussions focused on:
- Best practices for handling existing PO’s when entering into new EDI relationships
- Scorecarding for EDI
- EDI vs. API technology
- Handling retailer specific data requirements
- The adoption of Blockchain as a transmission medium in the supply chain
- EDI transactions relative to returns
Based on the discussions during the call, there is tremendous interest in this topic. With the input of peers and our facilitator, Michael Kotoyan with EDI Academy, a wealth of information was shared to the benefit of both the Retailer and Merchandise Suppliers represented.
The next call in this series is 3/18/20, followed by 5/13, 7/15, 9/16 and 12/16. Check the RVCF event page for times and registration. There is no cost to participate, but registration is limited to RVCF members. To further support the content of the calls, all participants are granted access to a private, secure community within the RVCF website that houses minutes from each session, other reference materials, plus the ability to interact with one another for further collaboration.
We look forward to continued work on this initiative. Questions about the call or other RVCF Member Benefits, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
