This study presents findings about perceptions and use of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) in Taiwan. It was undertaken to help build a framework within which to better understand EDI in a global setting. Findings indicate that there are differences and similarities between perceptions and use of EDI in Taiwan and what we know about EDI use in Western cultures. Possible explanations are offered for these findings. Several research questions arise out of the findings that can guide future research about EDI in a variety of cultures, and sets of propositions for each research question are suggested.
