EDI Academy – How to Send Electronic Documents to Partners Without an EDI Solution?

18/05/2017

EDI Academy BusinessMail

Previous articles for EDI Academy talked about the advantages of electronic document exchange between different partners in a business relationship. But what happens when the recipient doesn’t have an EDI platform? Should we go back to traditional delivery methods? Fortunately, this common problem has a solution and it’s called Business@Mail.

What is Business @ Mail?

Business@Mail is a service designed by EDICOM that allows sending electronic invoices and other documents, structured or not, to partners who do not have a technological solution to receive files.

Its operation is very simple. The issuer performs the necessary electronic transactions from its B2B EDI solution just as it does in the usual way. Automatically, the platform detects that the receiver of this data does not have an EDI platform and publishes them securely in the portal Business@Mail.

Next the recipient receives a notification that he or she has received documents that have not been consulted yet. From then on, the recipient can access the documents by connecting to the web portal using the username and password set beforehand.

In order to have greater control over the delivery of the document, the issuer periodically receives updates about the status of the documents sent to its partner. There are four possible statuses:

  • Confirmation that data has been published
  • Notification to recipient
  • Documents processed / consulted by the recipient
  • Documents not addressed by the recipient

What are the advantages of Business@Mail?

The main advantage of Business@Mail is that it allows companies 100% electronic communication regardless of the technological level of their partners. This avoids the heterogeneity of digital and paper documents, which entails complicated management and hinders the ability to store information correctly.

However, this is not the only benefit of Business@Mail. Its use also offers these advantages:

  • Immediacy and security. The documents are published on the web portal instantly and maintain all the security guarantees of any EDI relationship, which is something that would be lost when using email or physical documents.
  • Traceability. The issuer controls the information that it sent to its partner at all times.
  • Electronic storage. The files are stored in the solution for as long as the law requires and is controlled with an advanced electronic signature. In the case of invoices, for example, this prevents printing and physical storage, as they remain available for consultation at any time with the same legal validity as a paper document.
  • Publication of all types of data. Business @ Mail is prepared to send documents in four formats: standardized with a digital signature, structured without a signature, graphics (pdf, jpg, etc.) and mixed (standardized with a digitally signed pdf).
  • Free for the receiver. This service has no cost to recipients, which is especially important for the small partners as well as partners who cannot afford to use an EDI solution.
