After a rigorous series of tests, EDICOM has managed to become an EDI provider approved to connect with Carrefour, Brazil’s second biggest retailer. These trials positively rated the security assurances provided by the EDICOM platform in exchanging business transactions, such as purchase orders, invoicing for tax purposes and “espelhos da nota fiscal eletrônica“.
In practice, approval as an EDI service provider allows seamless connectivity with Carrefour. This means that all EDICOMNet platform users now have direct access to this retail giant, with no need for third-party intervention in their communications. This ensures more immediate and secure electronic document interchange.
Why does Carrefour trust EDICOM?
The reasons behind EDICOM’s certification as an approved provider include its technological capacity and international projection. The EDICOMNet VAN currently handles around 300 million transactions, from more than 12,000 trading partners worldwide. Moreover, it is a multiprotocol and multi-standard network, so can easily adapt to each company’s particular needs.
Another important reason for approval as an EDI provider is the service availability. In the SLA signed, EDICOM undertakes to ensure 99.9% availability. The resolution time for incidents is also set at less than 6 hours.
Beyond these reasons, we must add that EDICOM holds different international certifications and authorizations accrediting its platform security and data confidentiality. These include the ISO 27001 Information Security standard, ISO 20000 for IT Service Management or ISAE 3402.
A global connection with the retail sector
In addition to Carrefour Brazil, EDICOM also has direct connection to important retailers worldwide, such as Dia, El Corte Inglés, Toys ’R’ Us or Grupo Gigante. An industry in which the use of EDI becomes an indispensable tool to optimize supply chain management and ensure smooth communication between the many stakeholders taking part in it.
