PEPPOL, the state of play in Europe

September 26, 2016  |  Electronic Invoicing, Procurement

Increasingly across Europe, when dealing with public sector entities, suppliers must present their invoices electronically and in PEPPOL (Pan-European Public Procurement Online) format in order to get them paid.

So if, for example, you are a PEPPOL-compliant UK manufacturer of medical devices supplying a PEPPOL-compliant hospital in Sweden, then the procurement staff at the Swedish hospital will order a product from you using its PEPPOL-interfacing procurement system.

You can then send the invoice electronically, known as “e-invoicing”, using your order processing systems, which also interface with PEPPOL. Furthermore, thanks to the protocol’s standardisation, you and the hospital can trade with any other PEPPOL-compliant European organisation with ease.

So how is PEPPOL being used accross Europe? Time for a roadtrip.
