EDI - Electronic Data Interchange

L’Oreal has an XML/EDI solution for electronic data exchange with its business partners, streamlining the process of integrating these documents with the internal management system by fully automating the generation, transmission and reception processes from its own ERP.  


L’Oreal deploys an e-Invoicing platform that allows sending of electronic invoices in compliance with current legislation at all times and in line with the different customers’ requirements. This solution simplifies the issuing and sending processes of all types of invoices on the basis of the ERP data of the client, who only needs to record the document in the management system and indicate its destination. The L’Oreal customer billing solution takes care of recognising the addressee, adapting the invoice to the standard agreed with the client, signing it and setting up the mechanism required by the regulations at all times and forwarding it to the customer securely.  


CRP/VMI technology optimises stocks and good delivery times at point-of-sale. Through Edicom's CRP FLOW, L’Oreal analyses key product information parameters exchanged via EDI with some of the main trading partners. This analysis automates the processing of efficient provisioning orders, doing away with stockouts of critical references and ensuring adequate supply at all times to meet the needs of each centre where goods are received.  


L’Oreal is part of EDICOMNet, one of the main trading partner communities for the exchange of electronic transactions in B2B environments.
The presence of L’Oreal in EDICOMNet guarantees access to the vast majority of business partners, simplifying the sending and receiving of structured business documents (EDIFACT, X12, XML, UBL…) with full guarantees and maximum security.
Using EDICOMNet also ensures access to trading partners in other private networks, through the multiple interconnection agreements EDICOM maintains with the major Value Added Networks worldwide.
