Using paper forms is an outdated, inefficient and costly way to do business. Utilizing electronic business transactions that can be automatically uploaded into your business and operational support systems substantially reduces costs and greatly enhances productivity. EC Infosystems® evaluates your business systems’ environment, existing processes, and interactions with business partners to determine if Electronic File Transfer is right for your Utility company.
A real-time EDI transaction tracking tool
Give you the tools to succeed
Studies show that it costs, on average, $8.00 or more for many companies, to handle a paper form. Add in the costs for manual data entry, storage and retrieval and the costs are higher. Moving to a paperless, automated, electronic file environment saves a substantial amount of time and money. EC Infosystems® will evaluate your current processes, volume/type of transactions, systems environment, and Trading Partner relationships to formulate the optimal business case and ROI of transitioning to an electronic format.
