ezTRADE helps enterprises significantly improve their operational efficiency by:

Enhancing Speed and Accuracy

  • Reducing the order-to-cash cycle time as the normal excessive quantity of documents in this process are transmitted electronically
  • Improving data quality as electronic transmission reduces manual errors.
     

Saving Costs

  • Electronic invoice processing costs are 33%-37% lower than manual ones
  • Accelerating cash flow through reduction in inventory costs and out-of-stock items, and improving revenue collection process
     

Better Customer Services

  • Achieving higher delivery rates and just-in-time fulfilment
  • Enhancing customer relationships by rapidly responding to customer demands and increasing products/services' speed to market

 

To meet industries’ ever changing needs and growing demands, GS1 has been working with the ezTRADE end-users’ committee striving to enhance ezTRADE features and functions. These include expanding the service scope, the service level such as system availability and service supporting hours.
