This move is part of the company’s progress towards its medium term goals of:$1,000 bn of invoice value on the Tungsten e-Invoicing Network, $100 bn of invoice financing through Tungsten Finance, $10 bn of savings for clients using Tungsten Analytics.
The change in tariff structure is part of an effort to “remove any perceived barriers to adoption” on the suppliers’ end. Tungsten expects that once all users are on the new tariff structure, more than 80% of the suppliers that are currently using the platform no longer need to pay transaction fees to send an electronic invoice.
LegalShield (an Oklahoma-based provider of pre-paid legal services), Local Government Information Systems (LOGIS, an association of local government municipalities in Minnesota), and Agnico Eagle Mines (a major mining company headquartered in Toronto with primary operations in Quebec) selected Tungsten to deliver invoice automation workflow and advanced data capture technology.
Tungsten Network announced to have inked a strategic partnership with TrustWeaver. TrustWeaver’s legally compliant electronic signature, time-stamping and tax authority clearance functions had already been integrated into Tungsten Network’s document creation and validation workflows. However, this strategic partnership between Tungsten and Trustweaver implies a next step…
We earlier already mentioned that Tungsten was in the process of buying Docusphere. Tungsen now announced that is has successfully completed its acquisition of DocuSphere in September 2014.
This deal significantly extends Tungsten’s goal to help companies streamline their AP, adhere to tax and regulatory compliance, and have greater transparency of the entire invoice-to-pay process.
Tungsten stated to have been selected by German engineering conglomerate Siemens AG to bring e-Invoicing to its business and suppliers around the world. According to Tungsten, Siemens receives and processes more than 7 million invoices annually from its supplier base. To put things in perspective: Tungsten Network processed 13.4 million transactions last year.
The latest organisations to have selected Tungsten Network include Fresenius Medical Care and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Seven of the twelve largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, ranked by revenue, now transact with their suppliers through Tungsten Network.
Independent auditors recently completed a thorough assessment of Tungsten Network’s internal controls and concluded that they adhere to the ISAE 3402 framework. External auditors have also successfully completed an ISO 27001 surveillance audit.
On the Tungsten Blog, Charles Bryant posted an interesting article about the way e-invoicing is excuted in Mexico. As the title suggests, Charles Bryant carefully explores whether Europe should follow this approach.
All in all it is intriguing to ask whether the current path of EU liberalised e-invoicing (without B2B mandates) should perhaps be flipped for a path where mandated e-invoicing and fiscal efficiency go hand in hand.
Bull’s eye! Tungsten has –under conditions- bought DocuSphere. As you all probably know, DocuSpheres a provider of accounts payable automation services. Tungsten’s global supplier portal and e-Invoicing services combined with DocuSphere’s workflow and connectivity technology should help companies streamline their accounts payable functions from receipt of e-Invoice to payment even better!
