New Haven, CT, United States, 2008/04/01 - The nation’s largest annual EDI-related trade show is coming to the Dallas area June 9-12; and EDI Academy will be among hundreds of EDI professionals participating in the four-day, Texas-sized event.
What’s so special about the number 413? It’s the number of the booth space reserved for EDI Academy at U Connect ’08, June 9-12 at The Gaylord Texan in Grapevine.
EDI Academy is one of the nation’s leading providers of EDI-related instruction services. With more than fifteen years’ Electronic Data Interchange experience, EDI Academy’s instructors are fully qualified to train users (and prospective users) in all aspects of EDI implementation and practice.
EDI is a broadly used technology that facilitates information exchange between businesses while integrating data contained in shared documents into each company’s internal systems. Despite increasingly common business applications, many professionals have difficulty putting EDI to its most efficient use. Utilizing EDI enables firms to lower their costs of doing business – through reduced error rates, quicker payment cycles and fewer incurred business-administration costs.
Exhibitors from all across the United States are expected to converge on the giant Gaylord Texan exhibition hall, located at 1501 Gaylord Trail in Grapevine. During the U Connect ’07 exhibition held in Orlando, Fla., representatives from more than 680 companies took part; of the 1,700-plus attendees in 2007, more than half had attended at least one U Connect event in years past.
U Connect is the nation’s largest annual EDI-related trade show, focusing on a broad range of standards established to facilitate EDI implementation. Standards include barcodes, ecommerce, data synchronization and Business Process Automation (RosettaNet). Each year the event draws more than a thousand business and industry exhibitors, speakers and conference goers from all over the country.
Among the industries represented at U Connect ’08 will be alcohol and beverage, foodservice, general merchandise, healthcare and transportation & logistics. Some of the business areas to be represented are business-to-business, marketing & sales, quality & safety and manufacturing.
U Connect ’08 enables business trading partners to establish and/or strengthen existing working relationships, with structured conference sessions as well as informal networking opportunities (e.g., receptions, luncheons and networking breakfasts).
