EDI - Electronic Data Interchange

Unilever 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 Unilever 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, Unilever maximises the B2B communications platform’s benefits, extending its use to the entire community of trading partners. 


Unilever 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 Unilever 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.
