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.

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.
EDICOM Platform integrates with your ERP to automate issuance of all the documents required in the NHS process, including the ASN Dispatch Advice message and the logistic labels SSCC. The Serial Shipping Container Code is attached to each pallet and box in order to identify the items in each package.
