Answer to the Supply Chain Dilemma: Managed EDI, Delivered in the Cloud

Today, most large enterprises exchange data electronically and integrate it into their business systems. Mid sized suppliers struggle to achieve this degree of integration and process efficiency. In many cases, these companies have been left out of the electronic supply chain due to technological and/or organizational gaps that exist between them and their largest trading partners.

RedTail is a different kind of EDI provider. Many of the over 500,000 suppliers participating in the global supply chain today can gain immediate benefits by using RedTail’s fully integrated and automated EDI solutions and GDS solutions, helping them to improve customer service, reduce penalties for non-compliance, and streamline business processes to reduce total costs.
