EDICOM sponsors Procurex Ireland event dedicated to procurement innovation
Procurex Ireland 2018 is an event for both procurement professionals and industry-leading suppliers aimed at showcasing best practices and collaboration opportunities in procurement and the requirements of today’s public sector, such as electronic procurement and its innovations. The event will take place on April 26, 2018, at the Royal Dublin Society from 08.30 until 16.00. EDICOM will be at booth 35 and will give a conference at the Innovation & Efficiency Training Zone at 13.00h. Check the agenda here.
Supported by the Office of Government Procurement (OGP) and the Central Procurement Directorate (CPD), Procurex is designed to help both the public and private sector in achieving efficiency in their processes and facing the digital transformation challenge. Procurex Ireland 2018 will host four different training zones, designed specifically to help buyers and suppliers enhance their overall knowledge, collaborate and best practice, to meet ongoing procurement reform objectives, and develop their personal career opportunities.
Both public and private sector attendees will be able to engage with decision makers from the Irish public sector and gain knowledge on topics such as the role of eProcurement, data-sharing and professional development.
As worldwide leading technological provider in electronic data interchange, EDICOM experts will attend all your queries at booth 35 and will also give a conference on Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) as key tool in an efficient e-Procurement strategy at the Innovation & Efficiency Training Zone at 13.00h. We will explain what EDI and its advantages are, as well as its implementation in public procurement and the different approaches taken by European countries. Taking all this into consideration, we will focus on what Ireland can learn and benefit from our previous experiences in other countries.

The NHS e-Procurement Strategy is an example of how electronic transactions are becoming part of every company in a B2G scope, but also, in the future, in the B2B environment. The United Kingdom Department of Health has drawn up an e-Procurement strategy that requires NHS Trusts and their network of suppliers to use GS1 and PEPPOL standards and communication networks. At this moment, the adoption calendar has impacted medical devices companies and medicine suppliers.

Italy is also promoting healthcare sector digitalization through e-Ordering and the NSO platform. By 2019, the government will require all public health sector suppliers to be able to receive orders electronically through the NSO (Nodo Smistamento Ordini) platform. This platform is very similar to the SdI (Sistema Di Interscambio) and will validate and assign an ID to each purchase order, which must appear in the corresponding invoice. This way, the buying cycle is consolidated and connected. The NSO platform is intended to be the hub channel through which all orders are exchanged and forwarded to the respective suppliers. This way, the Ministry of Economics and Finance MEF will be able to verify the relation between orders and invoices.
As electronic procurement is expanding throughout the European Union, many countries are already adapting their local legislations in order to comply with Directive 2014/55/EU. At EDICOM we offer a Global Platform which can comply with local legislations regarding e-Invoicing or VAT compliance requirements.
