EDI Books, RFID Books, Electronic Data Interchange, and Electronic Commerce
If you are looking for an education but can't spend the time for an
EDI training class, you might want
to consider picking up one of these Electronic Data Interchange books. EDI has
been around for more two decades now and although some of the
technology has changed, the basic EDI concepts have not changed.
We show the more recent books first followed by some older books.
The RFID books have a retail focus. All of these books provide educational content
(not a sales pitch) and are available from a
name you trust, Amazon.
