Cenmed relies on technology to stay ahead of the curve.

EDI (Electronic data interchange) is the electronic movement  of data between organizations in a  structured,  computer-  retrievable data format. It has the ability to reduce labor costs  by importing  and exporting data directly  from/to customer and  vendors. EDI also allows for the limitation of human  keystroke  errors. Data is generally not  re-entered, allowing for expediting  ordering and processing.  All data is transmitted electronically, so  the manual  human transmission of mail through the post  office is  no longer necessary. Consequently, EDI solution results in a  more rapid customer driven  response, as well as an enhanced  trading relationship. The savings lead to a cheaper and  more  efficient way to deal with customer requests and order  fulfillment, leading to lower cost for goods  across the  board.

Punch-Out is the direct access of vendor delivered goods from supplier's ecommerce application. The buyer "punches out" of their company's system to directly access a supplier's website and gather products and/or information, including the ability to maintain a connection within their home system. The supplier's punch-out catalog allows the transmission of products gathered to be brought back to the home system by appropriate channels and links, thereby allowing customers the access to supplier's custom punch-out catalog.
