EDI company for manufacturing sector

Underpinning our solutions, and providing reassurance to customers, are a wide range of industry and government accreditations coupled with independent endorsements from online B2B reviews.

If you are thinking of approaching an EDI company for support, the following list of accreditations held by Transalis may serve as a useful benchmark or guide:


Transalis is one of the few EDI companies certified as an AS4 Peppol Provider, meeting the highest level of international public procurement standards. Standing for Pan-European Public Procurement Online, Peppol is an EDI protocol designed to simplify purchasing processes between government bodies and private suppliers. It enables trading partners to exchange standardised electronic documents, such as; eInvoices, orders, Advance Shipment Notices (ASNs), catalogues, and message-level responses.

Crown Commercial Services

Following our Peppol accreditation we were awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Service’s Peppol access point framework. This means we can transfer invoices and other business documents on behalf of NHS providers and suppliers, across the Peppol system.

Since Covid-19 began, we have used our position on the framework to give new NHS suppliers free access to our Peppol eInvoicing web portal. This move ensures suppliers of life-saving medical equipment can avoid red tape and unnecessary time spent on invoice processing and payment.

ISO 27001

The ISO 27001 data security standard recognises Transalis’ systematic approach to ensuring customers have a reliable and secure platform for automating transactions, minimising the need for costly manual processes and their associated errors. The internationally recognised accreditation followed a rigorous independent assessment in which the Transalis team demonstrated a coherent and comprehensive suite of data security and risk management controls.


Transalis holds GS1 certification thanks to our success in connecting a complex global network of trading partners and supply chains. GS1 is a worldwide organisation that develops and maintains global standards for business communication.

Cyber Essentials

A cyber security programme backed by the UK government, Cyber Essentials requires accredited organisations to ensure they can defend themselves against the vast majority of internet-based attacks. Measures firmly in place at Transalis cover all aspects of security including malware protection, patch management, access control, boundary firewalls, internet gateways and secure configuration.


The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) is a global body that supports procurement and supply chain professionals and promotes excellence within the industry. Its mission includes controlling industry costs, promoting the highest business ethics and preventing corruption. Our accreditation gives us access to a community of more than 200,000 procurement professionals and world-class resources we can use on behalf of our customers.

Investors in People

Being an accredited employer to the Investors in People Standard demonstrates our commitment to high performance through good people management. It reflects our continual goal to improve productivity through upskilling and investment in our team. Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. Underpinning the standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.


The European Institutions and the Member States of the European Union have agreed that eInvoicing should be public policy priority based on the Digital Agenda for Europe. As a member of EESPA (European eInvoicing Service Providers Association), we are involved in defining best practices and influencing public policy decisions around eInvoicing and interoperable ecosystems.

Being part of EESPA gives us the opportunity as an EDI company to work with like-minded organisations to bring positive change and policy improvement.
