Meet EDICOM’s integral solution
The e-Procurement Strategy in the UK continues to be progressively implemented within the NHS. GS1 and PEPPOL standards are already widely recognized by Trusts and healthcare suppliers. EDICOM presents a comprehensive solution which is both GDSN and PEPPOL compliant. All from one single provider.
On this year’s conference, our EDICOM experts will explain about the adoption of GS1 and PEPPOL standards in compliance with the NHS e-Procurement strategy. Since mid-2015, the sector has been working on implementation of this technological project, based on two fundamental cornerstones: data synchronization via the GDSN network electronic catalogs and the use of the PEPPOL infrastructure.
EDICOM can help health companies throughout the whole process, as we own a certified GS1 Data Pool to connect with the GDSN network and we are a certified PEPPOL Access Point and we have been awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) RM3784 PEPPOL Access Point Framework Agreement.
At EDICOM we also offer a full integrated EDI and e-Invoicing platform, which will make electronic data interchange automatic and immediate with full document traceability.
The rollout of e-communications through PEPPOL and GDSN is an open door to international trade and optimization of other business activities. Digitizing communications flows will create competitive advantages for businesses which will be able to expand their commercial focus worldwide.
The medical devices companies are already up and running with their adoption calendar. The next group of companies to implement the electronic system is the medicines group, such as pharmaceuticals and laboratories.
