ec-bp.com The Forum for Supply Chain Integration

ec-bp was established in 2005 as the advocate for lowering the barriers to the adoption of EDI, and our email newsletter has been published every month since that time. Our focus has expanded beyond EDI to encompas the full gamut of supply chain practices and technologies. In addition, our readership has grown to become the largest of any similarly focused publication, and has expanded to include more than 90,000 professionals involved in nearly every aspect of the supply chain.
Today’s supply chain is more than simple transport of EDI documents. The complexity of maintaining compliance with trading partners, managing the ever increasing amount of data, and analyzing that data to drive constant improvement in processes and service take supply chain professionals far beyond the basics of mapping EDI documents.

OnLine Store Business Process: E-Commerce & EDI
On-Line Stores have changed a lot and are growing. Consumers love the convenience. In 2011, US consumers spent $194 billion shopping via OnLine stores according to the US Department of Commerce. According to Forrester Research that number will grow to $279 billion by 2015.
Doesn't matter if they are “stand alone” OnLine store or a branch of a “brick and mortar” store, the efficient business model is the same. Everybody describes the process as “E-Commerce”, but the backbone of the whole progress is really EDI.

Required Attire for a Remote Workforce
Ever wonder how your telecommuting colleagues really live? Turns out, many of them actually do work in their pajamas. They also tend to love their work-life balance – to the point where they’d take a pay cut to maintain the status quo. This is a “must read” for both remote workers and for their office-bound managers.

EDI Recruiters

Some of the folks you will run into at “U Connect” are RECRUITERS. Don't have to look for them. They will find you. They are interested in both those who do the hiring and those who want to be hired. Talk to them, they are all good people.

I have always been interested in the EDI job market because as a project manager I depend on finding the best staff I can. Like everything else, recruiting is predominately outsourced to agencies. Used to be that most agencies “couldn't even spell EDI”. But as the industry has matured, so have the agencies. Their approach to advertising seems to take three general approaches:
(1)The “long-winded approach”: a full job description including experience, education, numerous nice-to-have attributes, plus a “sell job” on the client's business, great location and company benefits.
(2)The “mechanical” approach: Just enough information to get the prospect to click on a “apply now” button. The recruiting form that has to be completed asks numerous questions (some very unrelated to the actual job requirements). The object of this exercise is to populate an extensive database that can be used for screening, ranking, etc.
(3)The “tease” approach: Short and to the point. Object is to collect resumés which can then be analyzed by an actual human.

Sometimes I feel recruiters place to much emphasis on technical requirements such as translator experience (a “hard” answer) versus knowledge of EDI overall purpose and practice (a “soft” answer). You, the client should stress that technical requirements are open to “similar” skills.

I personally am open to (in my case, for consultants) over the age of 50 because I like to take advantage of someone's experience. Even for “permanent” positions, clients should be more open. Statistics show that EDI employees stay on the average of only 5 years anyway. Interviews have three reasons to exist:
(1)get to know the potential employee/consultant: interests, accomplishments, etc.;
(2)validate the individual: can he/she do the job;
(3)convince them why they want to work for your company/client. If the interviewer fails to do all of these, then they have dropped the ball.
