Cegedim e-business expands its UK position and solution platform with the acquisition of NetEDI


Cegedim e-business, a European expert in B2B process digitalisation and digitised data flows, announces the acquisition of NetEDI Ltd, the leading UK provider of PEPPOL EDI order and invoice transactions for the NHS Supply Chain. NetEDI is renowned for its powerful NeTIX cloud-based accounting, ERP integration and digitisation solutions platform that connects and automates vital business processes across all industries. With this acquisition, which follows that of both BSV and Ximantix earlier in 2019 (see April 1 and January 30 press releases), Cegedim e-business strengthens its capacity to support its clients internationally.

With this deal, Cegedim e-business, which is currently rolling out its comprehensive digitalisation service SY by Cegedim, confirms its commitment to innovation, notably with the NeTIX platform providing a global PEPPOL solution.

Steve Martin, Managing Director at NetEDI, comments, “Our NeTIX platform is a key market differentiator. Incorporating it into Cegedim e-business’ comprehensive solutions for digitising all types of documents creates more value for our respective customers, both companies and local government authorities.”

In the 10 years since it was founded, NetEDI has carved out a leading position in the UK EDI sector and boasts over 1500 active customers including NHS Supply Chain, which manages the sourcing, delivery and supply of healthcare products, services and food for NHS trusts and healthcare organisations. Its NeTIX platform provides a single point for EDI services, ERP integration and document digitisation

Benoît Garibal, Director of Cegedim e-business, comments, “NetEDI is a fast-growing company, particularly well positioned within the healthcare and retail markets. Clear technological and business synergies and the opportunity to strengthen our footprint in the UK make this acquisition a significant step in supporting our customers’ digital transformation. Cegedim e-business thus continues to chart its course as one of the European leaders in B2B process and data digitisation in every business sector.”

In line with its road map, Cegedim e-business remains on the lookout for new growth and innovation opportunities to better serve its clients.
