Lilly, one of the ten leading pharmaceutical companies in the world, is a global corporation specializing in research. Founded in 1876 in Indianapolis, it has a workforce of 38,000 people working in the 146 countries where the company is present.
Lilly engages in intense research activity on the basis of people’s unmet medical needs. To this end, each year Lilly invests 20% of its sales growth in research. 

EDI - Electronic Data Interchange

Lilly has an XML/EDI solution in ASP - SaaS to exchange electronic data with trading partners. Outsourcing the solution through the EDICOM B2B Cloud Platform simplifies the process of creating, sending and receiving all these documents from the ERP, delegating the EDI technology infrastructure hardware, software and maintenance to Edicom.  

Partner Web Portal

The Lilly XML/EDI solution has a web portal integrated with the ERP to facilitate the exchange of electronic business documents with partners who lack this type of technology. This way, Lilly maximises the B2B communications platform’s benefits, extending its use to the entire community of trading partners. 


Lilly has an e-Invoicing platform that allows the 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 Lilly e-Invoicing solution adapts the documents to the existing legislation on billing in countries such as [add countries], constituting the forwarding system for the bulk of the invoicing through specific technologies for e-commerce between businesses.  


Lilly is part of EDICOMNet, one of the main trading partner communities for the exchange of electronic transactions in B2B environments.
The presence of Lilly 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.
