Benefit of Standards Business information is organized according to a specific format, set by both trading partners, allowing a “hands-off” computer transaction that requires no human intervention or re-keying on either end. Most of the data is the same as is in a traditional paper document. Standards are designed to work across company boundaries, with updates and changes made by consensus, reflecting the needs of the industry, rather than those of a single organization. Organizations have adopted e-commerce standards for the same reasons they embraced much of today’s modern technology; for enhanced efficiency and increased profits. © Copyright 2010.
