This is one of the most highly anticipated events for companies in the electronic communications sector and will take place from June 1st to 3rd in the United States’ capital, Washington D.C.
The event will take place at the Marriott Marquis, which will host hundreds of companies and specialists in the field of information technology.
On this occasion, the event is titled, “Unlock the Power of Standards.” The objective is to demonstrate how companies and industries can utilize GS1 standards, have a greater potential to reinvent themselves, adapt easily to market changes, improve efficiency and ultimately grow their businesses.
EDICOM, a GS1 Connect 2016 silver sponsor, will demonstrate its B2B and B2G solutions at stands 52 and 53. These solutions are designed with interoperability criteria to be able to exchange electronic documents such as invoices in any country in the world regardless of legal or technical differences.
Today technology and the market are constantly evolving. Therefore companies from all sectors must be able to adapt and transform these changes into opportunities. In this sense, the opportunities in the B2B relationship field are marked by the use of the same language between partners. For this reason, EDICOM supports the electronic interchange of data based on standards that foster various associations such as GS1 both in Europe and in the United States and Latin America. These are some of the innovative solutions EDICOM’s specialists will present during the event:
The International Platform for Electronic Invoicing
In just a few years, electronic invoicing has been extended to a multitude of countries in the world, but especially in Latin America and Europe. The majority of these regions are already obligated to use this system with all businesses, which also affects multinational US companies that operate in these markets.
Does this present a problem? Yes it does which is that each country has different technical and legal requirements. In other words, there is no standardization, which makes it difficult for multinational companies to adapt to each and every regulation. That’s why EDICOM has created the International Platform for Electronic Invoicing as a solution, which uses a company’s management system to transform key information on invoices to the layout and requirements necessary for each country. The process is transparent and doesn’t affect a company’s daily operations. It also can be operated using the company’s central management software in the business’ matrix.
This is EDICOM’s ultimate standardized response, which leverages power technology infrastructure mapping tools. Not all countries will speak the same language in terms of electronic invoicing, but technology can translate the data from any invoice using a simple and straightforward process.
EDICOMData –GDSN Data Pool
Next after the electronic invoice, the use of product data synchronization through the GDSN pool is also expanding. In fact, in Europe its use is fundamental to suppliers and distributors of food products, since they must synchronize the nutritional information of their products.
In this area, the GDSN network is a bridge to achieve synchronization from the master articles of partners. Of course this is possible through the use of the GDSN standard based on structured XML language and GS1 codification for the identification of products through the GTIN (Global Trade Identification Number).
Aware of the importance of this network, EDICOM is one of the pool data pioneers standardized by GS1 International to be able to interoperate in the GDSN network with any other data pool certificate. Its orientation and promotion of standards as a basis for achieving an interconnected system of companies, is demonstrated with important milestones such as the approval of EDICOMdata, Data Pool and it being the first company ready to connect with the GS1 Source. In addition, EDICOM has the first solution adapted for the new GDSN Major Release version 3.
Since the upgrade of the GDSN network took place this May, 1,500 modifications that mainly affect the organizational structure have been incorporated. Now companies like EDICOM that have electronic catalogs based on the GS1 standard are able to arrange information in a more flexible way. Furthermore, the new version is prepared to adapt better to regulatory changes, to optimize the quality of data and to speed up the time necessary to implement the standard.
The EDI MultiFormat Solution
Another tool attendees won’t want to miss at stands 53 and 54 at GS1 Connect is EDICOM’s EDI platform. It’s a complete solution for electronic data interchange that automates the process of issuing electronic transactions (orders, delivery notes, confirmation receipts, etc.) through a company’s management system.
The highlight of this tool is that it’s a multiformat and multistandard solution. This means that, from an automatic translation module, it is able to share information securely with any partner regardless of its location, standard used and technological capabilities. As a result, multinational companies can manage their financial activities from a centralized point whether it’s at an IT Department or through shared service centers. The final result is great economic costs.
Without a doubt, these will be the three leading tools at this year’s GS1 Connect event.
