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 and its use is also rapidly increasing around the world due to digital transformation and consumer 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 and Google 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 has become an essential technology used to connect suppliers with large distributors and meet current market needs like flexibility, security and immediacy.
The supply chain industry faces new challenges in a decentralized and globalized scenario. Exports and imports are successful when they achieve immediate, safe and efficient communication between the origin and destination of the product and between the producer and the distributor.
Electronic catalogs are becoming an important part of data synchronization particularly in the healthcare industry because of the wide variety of products, information and stakeholders taking partaking 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 previously catalogs needed to be constantly updated to modify or add new references. With GDSN this is no longer necessary since the e-synchronization process makes It automatic and immediate.
New EDICOM Partner Onboarding Test and Certification Portal
We have created the Partner Onboarding Testing and Certification Portal to facilitate the onboarding of new business partners in order to streamline the integration of EDI partners and messages. The portal allows companies to outsource the testing and certification phase of the onboarding process.
This produces the following benefits for the Portal Host:
Certify multiple partners from a single platform
Optimize partner onboarding and partner community growth
Accelerate the adaptation process of new partners
Streamline the production 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 legislation models that exist around the world. Thanks to EDICOM companies only need one e-invoicing provider to operate in any market directly from their centralized management system or ERP.
