Baker & Taylor (B&T), a major book jobber, how offers EDIFACT online ordering and invoicing. EDIFACT is the international standard for computer-to-computer communication of business transactions.
B&T completed testing with Endeavor Information Systems in August. The company plans to work with other vendors of automated library systems for online ordering and invoicing per the standard. Libraries will be able to integrate all aspects of acquisitions, rather than use a separate system for online ordering or receipt of invoices from a vendor.
