PEPPOL – how you’ll benefit from its 4-corner model of e-invoicing

June 8, 2017  |  Electronic Invoicing, Procurement

This Spring the NHS opened its doors to and started trading via the new PEPPOL (Pan European Public Procurement On-line) network. For the first-time, health service providers and their suppliers will be sending and receiving orders and e-invoices across the PEPPOL network.

PEPPOL aims to save money within public sector back offices, which can be used for front line services. The network enables documents, such as purchase orders and invoices, to be exchanged in a standard way electronically between buyers and sellers, without any manual intervention.

For an e-invoicing solution to be a success in your organization its worth remembering that you needs to achieve high supplier adoption rates, and to do this your solution needs to be simple to use and non-disruptive to your suppliers:

  • Don’t ask suppliers to change their applications or infrastructure to send XML or EDI
  • Don’t ask suppliers to raise their invoice in their own accounting package and then do it again in a 3rd party portal

By adopting these principles, you can be confident of driving supplier adoption rates in your PEPPOL and e-invoicing projects
