  Electronic data interchange(EDI)is the passing of ordersinvoicesand other trade transactions directly between computers.EDI avoids the need to print out documents at one endpost themand then key the information in at the receiving companyand can thus be a faster and cheaper method of exchanging information[].
  Although EDI has taken place for some time—BACS(the BankersAutomated Clearing Service)being an example—it is only recently that largescale paperless business communication between companies has become possible.The use of EDI is illustrated in Fig

  Users of EDI include companies in the financialhealthtraveland also the government.The UK government has set up its own data network—the Government Data Network(GDN)一designed to link together the computing facilities operated by various departments.This will enable paperless communication between government agenciesand is intended to increase the efficiency of their operation.Other areas that have set up their own EDI networks are the Lloyds insurance market in London(LIMNET)the British shipping industry(to handle import/export documentation)and the Electronic Record Ordering Service(EROS)set up to enable record shops to respond quickly to changes in demand.

    The benefits claimed for EDI may be broken down as follows
  ()Operational benefits
  ● reduction in paperwork
  ● improved accuracy
  ● handling of paper invoices and statements eliminated
  ● greater security.
  ()Cost savings
  ● reduction of dataentry overheads
  ● reduction in amount of stationery used
  ● elimination of duplicated processes like the rekeying of data.
  ()Logistical benefits
  ● reduction of order/dispatch timelag
  ● improved delivery time
  ● reduction in inventory levels
  ● improved planning and forecasting.

  It should be noted thatdue to economies of scaleonly companies with a large numner of trading partners are able to maximize the operational and cost benefits.Howeverboth large and small firms are able to benefit by the fact that EDI will tend to bring companies closer together in terms of trust and understanding.
  Electronic Funds Transfer(EFT)is the automatic transfer offunds(actually their coded equivalent)from one institutions computer to anothers[].EFT is a subset of EDIand refers to the transfer of value electronically from buyer to seller.
  In the US and EuropeEFT has been referred to as thecash cousinof EDI.Perhaps they could be viewed more as husband and wifeas what appears to be emerging internationally is an extremely close working relationship.
  EFT has been the major implementation by the banks to eliminate paper processing.Some EFT solutions enlisted in the fight against paperwork volumesscreenbased cash management systemsSwift(international)Bits(domestic)direct entry(magnetic media)ATMEFTPOS(cardbasedinternational and domestic)home bankingphone bankingand bill payment.
  EFT is largely responsible for increased markets for dataencryption hardware and software in an attempt to reduce computer crimes.
