As well as opening up the marketplace to new potential EDI business partners, the organisation is now able to meet full compliance in PEPPOL, an integral part of the Department of Health’s eProcurement strategy.
PEPPOL (Pan-European Public Procurement OnLine) is a network for the exchange of electronic business documents such as orders, invoices and shipping notices.
The Department of Health have publicly committed to the adoption of PEPPOL across the NHS with the aim of increasing efficiencies and reducing costs through the electronic transfer of business documents.
To achieve PEPPOL compliance, Medi-Inn (UK) Ltd selected NetEDI (www.netedi.co.uk) as their certified Access Point provider. NetEDI is a cloud based EDI/PEPPOL provider
offering comprehensive services and solutions to NHS Trusts and private sector companies that enable electronic transactions to be fully integrated into any ERP system.
An integrated solution provides an automated, efficient system for exchanging business documents, it means that payment and processing errors can be reduced therefore improving cash flow.
Medi-Inn (UK) Ltd is now able to send and receive EDI & PEPPOL compliant business documents and ensure that the demands of the NHS and other potential customers are met.
As a supplier to such a large potential market, Medi-Inn (UK) Ltd can communicate with any trading partner connected to the PEPPOL network regardless of the access point used.
