Ample experience in the retail sector
Retail has long been the sector where electronic data interchange has been the most ubiquitous, widely implemented and standardized.
Common messages of use in this sector include Purchase Orders, Advanced Shipping Notices and Invoices, integrating retailers, vendors, 3rd Party Logistics Providers and any other player in the supply chain.
The sheer size and variability of the articles sold, the diverse profiles of vendors and retailers and the adoption of continual replenishment solutions are but a few factors that have made retail the sector where one finds the greatest implementation of technologies for data integration.
EDICOM is one of the premiere providers of these integration solutions in Europe and the Americas and the principal partner of some of the largest retailers and suppliers in the world, among them Carrefour, Harrods, Toys ‘R’ Us, Le Printemps, Dia, American Apparel, Delhaize, Douglas, Unilever, Bonduelle, Energizer, Red Bull, Heinz…
Some of the solutions EDICOM has developed specially to optimize commercial communications and transaction systems for retail and distribution are:
Integrated EDI:For situations in which companies process high volumes of transactions, EDICOM provides an integration platform with the capacity to automate such messages directly to and from our partner’s ERP. EDICOM has ample experience integrating more standard messages like Invoices, Sales Reports and Purchase Orders as well as more esoteric logistical message sets.
Partner Web Portal: EDICOM creates custom portal solutions for retailers to achieve maximum Onboarding success, insuring that even their smallest partners are totally EDI compliant. All messages registered in the portal will be completely integrated with the retailer’s ERP. Additionally, our portal’s ease of use will guarantee a low level of maintenance and training for vendors.
EDICOMData -GDSN Solution-: EdicomData is our Electronic Product Catalog developed for the synchronization of Price Catalogs. EdicomData is a GS1-certified and completely interoperable meaning it will work seamlessly with whatever Data Pool your partner is using. Additionally EDICOM develops integration solutions for publishers (suppliers) that want a more automated flow of GDSN processes and Product Information Management solutions for retailers on the subscription-side.
