Overview

Learn how an electronic invoicing system can simplify mandate complexity

Global compliance mandates. Process efficiency. Partner integration. These are some of the factors driving companies to adopt electronic invoicing solutions. While the ROI and process efficiencies are clear, the complexity of legacy systems, multiple channels and country-specific legal requirements often deter adoption. However, reluctant companies must embrace invoice automation to stay competitive and compliant. E-Invoicing solutions simplify the process, reducing cost and complexity while helping to meet regional compliance mandates.

  • Maintain global compliance

    Meet post-audit and clearance electronic invoicing regulations, such as PEPPOL, SdI (Italy), Chorus/PPF (France) and KSeF (Poland) in more than 48 countries with e-Invoicing software.

  • Reduce processing costs

    Reduce errors, delays and penalties while taking advantage of early payment discounts with an efficient electronic invoicing system.

  • Increase AP/AR process automation

    Improve agility, speed and visibility with workflows that automatically identify data, initiate next steps and distribute information.

  • Simplify tax audits

    Provide easy access to all key VAT data for internal stakeholders and external auditors throughout mandatory retention periods.

Business impacts

  • Meet global electronic invoicing regulations

    Keeping up with new and evolving regulations, such as the French, Italian, Polish and Saudi Arabian government mandates, is time-consuming and error prone. Connect, collaborate and comply with partner invoice requirements in more than 48 countries.
  • Increase cash flow

    Time-consuming manual processes make it harder to meet deadlines let alone get ahead of them, and late payment penalties can be costly. Automate e-Invoicing processes and swap late payment penalties with early payment discounts.

  • Automate invoice processing

    Companies across all industries need to compete in an increasingly global market and those that rely on paper-based invoice processing will be left behind. Modernize and automate processes to increase speed, meet ESG requirements and stay competitive.
  • Solve application and platform integration challenges

    Invoicing processes involve multiple siloed systems, functions and applications, across and outside the business. Integrate these siloed applications with your external community to reduce digital friction and improve agility and visibility.

  • Simplify tax audits

    When an audit hits, relevant information must be located quickly. Searching through siloed files drains resources and productivity and could result in expensive penalties. Minimize the impact of auditing requirements with a centralized legal archive.
  • Conform to industry-specific processes

    Industries like manufacturing have specific e-Invoicing requirements. Customize and streamline processes to meet industry and region-specific requirements with a flexible, global e-Invoicing platform.

E-Invoicing, also known as electronic invoicing, is a fully digital approach to the billing process between buyers and suppliers, where invoices are generated, managed, sent and received online, enabling automated and seamless financial transactions.

E-Invoicing technologies allow a business to create and send invoices digitally from system to system, instead of printing and mailing a paper copy to the customer. The best e-Invoicing solutions are capable of integrating ERP, e-procurement and treasury systems with your buyers and suppliers to maximize efficiency.
