EDI, or Electronic Data Interchange, is the transfer of structured data, or standardised electronic documents, between businesses, without human intervention.

In the world of e-invoicing, both EDI and XML play important roles. EDI has long facilitated secure data exchange and thus provides a good fit for the needs of sending invoices electronically. However, the greater flexibility and interoperability of XML formatting has won out over EDI standards for e-invoicing requirements brought in for public sector invoicing across the EU.

This eBook provides a guide to structured data invoicing, common EDI standards, solution architecture and considerations for integration with business processes. Based on over a decade of delivering structured data integration as part of electronic invoicing for global brands.

  • what EDI, XML and structured data are, and why are these terms associated with electronic invoicing
  • the benefits of structured data invoicing and how to embrace this as a business
  • what the main EDI standards are and how an EDI solution is structured
