IPM – Integral Partner Management

Edicom Advanced Management Services defined for Outsourcing and Onboarding let you outsource the tasks necessary to administer the client solution and the formalities required to achieve swift integration for the greatest possible number of partners.

When the number of companies in the client's partner community is relevant, it is usually necessary to allocate resources permanently to deal with partners, performing tasks and procedures on an ongoing basis to enable optimum performance of the customer's e-commerce systems.

These tasks are usually handled by the “EDI Administrator Groups”, consisting of technical teams who know the policies and particular features of the client’s B2B communication system.

Through our Advanced Management IPM service (Integral Partner Management), Edicom takes over all the activities of an “EDI Administrator Group”, enabling outsourcing of the tasks involved in ongoing management of your partner community.
