EDI Outsourcing and Managed Services, Richmond Virginia, Since 1994


Company History

In 1994, owners Kent Benton and Bruce Sandkam saw a need for on-demand EDI managed services in the marketplace. They recognized that flexible EDI managed solutions were essential to companies trying to navigate EDI usage and knew that they could provide top quality service at a reasonable price. The pair joined forces to augment their already extensive knowledge of EDI and internet business systems and created EDI Partners, Inc.

Benton brought his knowledge of early EDI systems for the healthcare industry (Anthem/WellPoint, First Health), as well as his experience as the manager of technical services at Owens & Minor (where the EDI program was recognized as the best in the industry), to the new company. Sandkam added his abilities in development and implementation of EDI and information management plans for Overnite Transportation Company and other industries, and a strong leadership background as founder of The Virginia eCommerce Forum, a professional organization that promotes EDI and Electronic Commerce activity.

The visionaries assembled a team of technical pros that established the superior reputation and presence of EDI Partners, Inc.

Over the past 22 years, the Richmond Virginia-based company has grown from a locally focused firm to an internationally connected corporation able to serve the needs of its diverse clientele. In the early days, the EDI Partners team specialized in grocery/food service contracts and then moved on to assist companies in the manufacturing and healthcare arenas. Today, the experts at EDI Partners handle the gamut of e-commerce and EDI needs for clients in those arenas as well as retail, transportation, energy, telecommunications, banking, chemical and many more.

At EDI Partners, the primary objective is to get clients up and running at top efficiency by utilizing the best possible business solutions.

Today, offering the best means focusing on state-of-the-art EDI outsourcing services, consulting—both in-house and on an “as needed” basis—implementation needs, support and processing.

The EDI Partners team is equally adept at serving as the "expert staff" a company requires or training clients to manage their own EDI needs.

Flexibility is the key to remaining profitable in this ever-changing economy and EDI Partners, Inc. is committed to evolving along with the managed services sector and pioneering new solutions for manifold e-commerce demands.
