You can start an electronic commerce relationship with Raytheon in several different ways:

  • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
    EDI is a method of implementing application-to-application transfer of business documents between computers. Both companies involved in the exchange must have a translator to convert their application format to the EDI standard format (and vice versa), and a "mailbox" for sending and receiving the data.

  • Point-to-point
    Point-to-point is a method of exchanging data directly from trading partner to trading partner. One way of implementing point-to-point is the use of FTP or SFTP. The file contents are generally in the proprietary format of the sender. The receiver will log into a secured website, pick up the file, and import the data into its business applications. This method is useful for one-way-only transactions.

  • eXtensible Markup Language (XML)
    XML is a method for business data transfer. Business documents are internally labeled, with each piece of information identified by a human readable name. Using a simple formatting language, these XML documents can be translated into a variety of formats to match the need of the business application.
