A supply chain automation specialist that underpins essential electronic data exchange in the government and health sectors has gained a coveted seal of approval for doing business across the world.
Hampshire-headquartered Transalis has this month become one of just a handful of UK tech firms certified as meeting the highest level of international public procurement standards.
It means the company has more power to pitch its cloud-based data management services to health providers and contractors working across Europe and in Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.
“This is great news for us,” said Aniello Sabatino, Transalis co-founder and Joint Managing Director. “It fits hand in glove with our aim of enabling our health sector customers to enjoy efficiency improvements.
“It supports all aspects of electronic procurement and supply chain management including the exchange of purchase orders, despatch advice and invoice messaging.”
The certification is formally for the AS4 standards of PEPPOL, standing for Pan European Public Procurement Online.
PEPPOL is a multi-national framework of technical specifications designed to make disparate tech systems interoperable.
Transalis’ success with PEPPOL follows its certification last year for the separate ISO 27001 data security standard.
This was another vote of confidence in Transalis’ systematic approach to ensuring customers have a reliable, secure platform for automating transactions, so minimising the need for costly manual and paper-based processes and associated errors.
Transalis launched a new, fully managed supply chain solution for NHS trusts, hospitals and contractors at the 2019 GS1 UK Healthcare Conference in London.
As well as healthcare and government, Transalis has clients in sectors worldwide such as retail, food and beverage, manufacturing, distribution and logistics.
