EDI investment projects used to be justified on the basis of savings on postal charges and processing charges alone, and figures were calculated from the amount saved on every order raised or invoice processed. But time and EDI have moved on. There is a greater realization that EDI is just an enabler, and the mayor benefits that derive from the use of today's computer and telecommunications revolution will be in the change in business relationships and practices that use of timely and accurate information can bring (Parfett 1992: 2).

Parfett (1992: 12-13) concludes from a survey that the most important arguments for implementing EDI are:

- Strategic benefits - To increase the competitive edge (68%): Of crucial, longterm significance to the functioning of the organization. These benefits will affect the very business the company is undertaking, i.e. its central operating function.

- Operational benefits - To reduce costs (56%): Of mayor importance to daily operations of the company, usually only impacting on certain department within the organization.

Benefits from future opportunities - To provide new business opportunities (45%): EDI is not necessarily seen to be crucial to the current operations of the company, but as offering potential future benefits. The list of opportunity benefits includes such factors as enhanced image and competitive edge, which although perceived as beneficial, are difficult to quantify.

Justification for EDI was on the basis of savings on postal charges and processing charges alone and figures were calculated for the amount saved on every order raised or invoice processed. But time and EDI have moved on. There is a greater realisation that EDI is just an enabler and the major benefits derived from the use of today’s computer and telecommunications revolution will be in the changes in business relationships and practices that use of timely and accurate information can bring.
