Fully automate your B2B communications with EDI worldwide
EDI is now well adopted within US companies mostly in the retail or in the healthcare sector, but its use is also increasing around the world, due to digital transformation and consumer habit changes.
The retail sector has been a pioneer in the rollout of information technology for exchanging business data and documents electronically. Big e-Commerce platforms such as Amazon, Alibaba or Google are the ones that promote and drive innovations and evolution in the retail industry. By developing their own business models globally, any supplier wishing to work with them must adapt to their rules related to the supply chain. EDI is one of the technologies that become essential to connect with large distributors and meet current market needs: flexibility, security and immediacy.
The supply chain industry faces new challenges in our decentralized and global scenario. Exportations and importations are successful when they achieve immediate, safe and efficient communication between the origin and final destination of the product, and between the producer and the distributor.
Electronic catalogs are also becoming an important part of data synchronization, for example in the healthcare industry, due to the wide variety of products and stakeholders taking part in the business cycle. Suppliers, manufacturers and distributors are turning their backs on the use of traditional catalogs in favor of product data synchronization through the GDSN network. This is because, whereas catalogs needed to be constantly updated to modify the information of the articles or add new references, e-synchronization makes the process automatic and immediate.
We have created the Partner Testing and Certification Portal to facilitate partner onboarding in communication flows and to streamline the integration of EDI partners and messages. The portal allows companies to outsource an important part of the Onboarding process: the testing and certification phase.
This produces benefits for the Portal Host:
Certify multiple partners from a single platform
Optimize partner onboarding and partner community growth
Acceleration of the adaptation process of new partners
Streamline inclusion of new EDI messages with existing partners
Eliminate resources allocated to communication test phases
Globalization, the expansion of markets and legislative changes around the world means that companies are increasingly interconnected, and require secure and reliable communications to roll out international e-Invoicing projects.
EDICOM has developed a global electronic invoice platform that adapts to different e-invoice models that exist in the world and to the legislation currently in force in each country. This way companies need only one platform to operate in any market, allowing them to continue working from their centralized management system.
