Welcome to the Nashville Chapter of AITP

News and Events

EDI Trends

      Our October program is about an area of Information Technology which is a
requirement of many companies, especially large retail operations. The area is Electronic Data Interchange, more commonly known as EDI. EDI systems are the process which a company orders products from vendors, and vendors ship products to customers. The EDI area has grown from an ordering system to one that touches on or interacts with many operations of a company.

     Our speaker is Tim Bolton, EDI Manager, Genesco Inc. Tim will discuss the background
of EDI systems and the changes that have taken place over the years. He will discuss the
challenges of dealing with the many internal and external customers and with changing
government regulations. This will include the multiple issues of security in electronic
systems. Tim will also outline the changes he sees in future EDI systems and requirements and how EDI people must prepare for these changes.
