Cegedim acquires UK based NetEDI

Wednesday 4th September, 2019

Cegedim e-business has announced the acquisition of NetEDI Ltd a leading UK provider of PEPPOL EDI order and invoice transactions for the NHS Supply Chain.

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.

NetEDI cloud-based accounting, ERP integration and digitisation solutions platform NeTIX connects and automates vital business processes across all industries.

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 has 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.

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.”

This follows with the company’s acquisitions of BSV in April and Ximantix in January 2019.
