Electronic Data Interchange

Howarth Timber works closely with suppliers and customers in ensuring that we remain at the forefront of technological developments.


With our own information systems department we are able to focus our efforts in developing bespoke solutions to meet both our own and our partner’s procurement needs.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), is the transmission of data between companies via the internet and other electronic mediums, reducing the need for traditional methods of invoicing, ordering and so on. The Howarth Timber Group is working at the forefront of this cutting-edge technology.

  • Reduced administration costs
  • Elimination of human keying errors
  • Faster document processing
  • Easier document retrieval
  • Removal of reliance on the postal service

By reducing the need for paperwork and assisting in the speed and streamlining of data feed between both suppliers and customers alike we can not only look at providing information more quickly but also help reduce the environmental impact that traditional methods of communication can cause.
