EDICOM - Guillermo CORBI - International Director
Alain Bobant : Good morning Guiilermo, EDICOM has just joined the FNTC; in order to let us get to know your company better, first I suggest that you briefly outline for us the history of EDICOM.
Guillermo Corbi : EDICOM was founded in 1995 in Valencia, Spain, where its headquarters are located. The company soon took on the role of international operator to provide its B2B IT integration services to clients with business interests in different countries. In 2000, just five years after launching, the firm opened its first international branch in Mexico. Since then, the company has carried out projects in more than 60 countries around the world, having established a strong presence in Europe and America with offices in countries like France, Italy, the USA, Brazil, Colombia and Argentina.
A.B. : Could you describe the organisation, and specify the nature of its offer ?
G.C. : EDICOM provides specific information system integration services by exchanging data through solutions such as EDI or e-Invoicing. All the company’s services are provided in ASP-SaaS mode, maintaining a technological infrastructure and service available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, which users access via Internet.
EDICOM is also a Certification Authority in the EU and Mexico and plans to obtain certification as Trusted Service Provider, according to EU Regulation 910/2014, providing services such as issuing of electronic certificates, electronic signature of digital documents, or electronic document safekeeping as trusted third-party, through our Coffre Fort Electronique service “e-LTS” (e-Long Time Storage).
A.B. : What are EDICOM's projects today ?
G.C. : EDICOM solutions, all developed in-house, help eliminate the use of paper and automate your management processes through intensive use of electronic transactions. Solutions such as EDI or International Electronic Invoicing enable clients to foster B2B e-commerce, anywhere in the world, overcoming any technological or legal constraints to achieve full integration of your processes with those of all your trading partners.
As a trusted services provider, we adjust your e-signature or digital document safekeeping processes to the technical specifications and legal requirements in force in the markets where your customers are, ultimately acting as trusted third party and providing legal validity to the transactions managed through your solutions.
A.B. : One last question, in relation to your joining the FNTC, I think that you are convinced that the "trusted third party space" has an important role to play in the digital economy ?
G.C. : Trusted third parties are the agents that will provide the probative legal validity of e-documents. This figure will be key in driving the uptake of e-management processes at source, allowing users to finally do away with the use of paper in critical processes both for companies and individuals.
A.B. : Thank you very much Guillermo, and welcome !
