EDICOM NHS Solution: Features


Mapping module PEPPOL Network module GS1 Standard module
We translate the data generated by your ERP into the GS1 and PEPPOL standards demanded by the administration. The source language used (txt, csv, idoc, etc.) is not important, as our data transformation tool, “Edicom Mapping Tool”, lets you manage several data structures. Through our Public Administration HUB, as an Access Point accredited by PEPPOL, we connect to any British Public Health services.

With this platform, safe and direct exchange of transactions is achieved, centralizing communications with multiple partners from a unique data sending and reception point.
EDICOM has a Data Pool approved by GS1 to operate in the GDSN (Global Data Synchronization Network) and fully guaranteed. We export the product data from your article master record and upload them to the NHS GS1 repository.

This way, synchronization is achieved between your article master and the NHS products database and automatically updated whenever you make any changes.
