In 2014, the Department of Health in England mandated that all NHS Trusts must adopt GS1 standards and this means all their suppliers must become GS1 compliant.
hameln have been fully engaged in e-Commerce for over 10 years and we are proud to be fully GS1 and PEPPOL compliant
e-Commerce has been proven to improve service levels and to streamline the order-delivery process. This means our customers have the potential to use e-Commerce to trade with hameln, from orders through to invoices and advance shipping notifications. This helps UK hospitals meet one of the key recommendations in Lord Carter’s 2016 Review of Operational Productivity and Performance in English NHS Acute Hospitals, which stated that 90% of orders and invoices should be sent and processed electronically.
