EDI - Electronic Data Interchange

 Abbot 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.


Abbot has developed an electronic invoice sending solution that enables the processing of large document volumes. The client's e-Invoicing solution automates the process of creating and sending invoices, as well as signing them digitally through the EDICOM Certification Authority’s Delegated Signature service.


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