GDSN for data synchronisation
EDICOM provides compliant services for the data synchronization. We have a GS1 certified Data Pool, able to operate in the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN). We export product data from your article master record and upload it to the NHS GS1 repository. Our electronic catalogue, EDICOMData, ensures full traceability throughout the supply process.
Certified PEPPOL Access Point
EDICOM is accredited as PEPPOL Access Point, which allows us to link up with the PEPPOL network.Through it, private companies and governments all over Europe, can exchange all kinds of e-documents. This platform achieves secure and direct exchange of transactions, centralizing communications with multiple partners from a unique data sending and reception point.
NHS solution for Suppliers
With our data pool, synchronise your article master and the NHS products database and automatically update it whenever you make changes. Our Certified PEPPOL Access Point allows suppliers to comply with the required standards and communications.
