The electronic distribution of data is an integral part of AWTA’s services. Through our Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) facilities, AWTA provide electronic data for virtually every test we undertake. Customers can improve service turnaround and reduce testing costs by transmitting sale lot and bale weight data to AWTA as part of our standard core testing service.
AWTA has been at the forefront of the development and adoption of EDI systems within the wool industry through membership of the Wool Industry Electronic Data Processing Users Group (WIEDPUG).
This industry body is responsible for implementing data communication standards within the wool industry, with which all AWTA EDI services comply. This covers both the sending and receiving of test data, sale lot information and our EDI mailbox service, as well as many other transactions that occur in the trade of wool.
