X12 EDI Transaction Sets 200-299
November 5th, 2020
When trading partners complete all of their business transactions electronically, their internal systems need to understand each other for accurate processing. With mass amounts of data flowing in and out of most organizations daily, these exchanges are much easier when all that data is structured in the same, commonly understood format. This holds true for electronic transactions between both business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-government (B2G) organizations, and that’s why EDI standards have been introduced—to simplify business operations and processes.
There are a few major EDI standards used in various parts of the world, and the American National Standard’s Institute’s X12 is one of them. So basically, if you’re exchanging invoices and other business documents electronically in North America, ANSI’s X12 is on your radar.
