What Should I Consider When Choosing an e-Invoicing Provider?

To successfully implement an electronic invoicing solution with an international focus, you need to choose your internal team carefully, but you also need a trusted technology partner that can offer certain assurances. 

Make sure the provider guarantees the availability of the solution and is willing to answer questions and handle incidents under a Service Level Agreement (SLA). Another aspect to consider is whether the provider's processes are certified according to ISO 20000 or ISAE3402.

Invoices contain sensitive information. It is therefore essential that the supplier guarantee confidentiality in the processing of data and secure data management and storage according to international standards such as ISO27001, TIER or external audits

It is important for your technology partner to have thorough knowledge and proven experience in the development of global e-Invoicing projects in the countries where you do business.

Check the volume of clients your partner serves. Determine whether the provider is really an international player and consider the opinions of their clients.

For projects that require the participation of third parties, the service provider should ensure a trusted partnership policy. This means having a network of partners who offer local services in different regions, such as certifications, signatures or specific communications related to electronic invoicing

It is important for your technology provider to have open lines of communication with the tax authorities so that the solution can be kept permanently updated and legally compliant. Tax authorities sometimes establish certification processes that technology providers must complete in order to render their services in those countries

Personalized support is better than impersonal helpdesks that use tickets and automated procedures. Having consultants who know the ins and outs of their users' solutions and are able to talk to clients in their own language is crucial to quickly clearing up any doubts or incidents that may occur.

Electronic invoicing is just one of the total transactions that a global electronic communications platform can handle. The most highly advanced technology partners should be able to offer you value-added solutions and services that integrate the management of multiple business transactions through technologies such as EDI or VMI / CRP (continuous replenishment programs).

With an interoperable platform, you can manage the exchange of your electronic documents with 100% of your partners. Having an extensive and robust infrastructure facilitates global communications. 

Surveillance, monitoring and management of your SaaS e-Invoicing platform

Outsourcing the technological resources associated with your B2B2G communications platform to a global provider such as EDICOM, and delegating the management procedures required for its maintenance, guarantees constant updating and optimum operation of commercial, logistical and tax communications with your public or private partners.

A Centralized Global e-Invoicing Platform for Issuing and Receiving Invoices

Our global electronic invoicing platform implements modules with specific functionalities for adapting your accounting and management systems to meet the requirements in the countries where you do business. 

 

Data Integration Module

This module establishes the connections with the internal management system to integrate invoice issuing and reception. This functionality guarantees the automation of the electronic invoicing solution. In addition, it is responsible for transforming the data structures to the required standards, implementing the established digital signature systems or managing the electronic declaration processes in accordance with current legislation.

Validation Module

Sent and received invoices are parsed and syntactically validated to ensure that they comply with all the technical specifications required for each invoice template. This module also performs a semantic validation to ensure that the information in each document complies with the guidelines defined to align with the requirements of each business partner.

Compliance Module

Its function is to integrate the technical and legal specifications that each digital invoice system establishes in the different countries. It is a module that communicates with the "integrator" of the platform that indicates how the data on each invoice should be handled at all times in order to remain legally compliant. 

Communications with Public and Private Partners Module

At this point, the electronic invoice is ready to be sent to its destination. The communications module identifies the recipient of the electronic document and sends it automatically. The document is routed through the communications protocol agreed with the recipient. Finally, the acknowledgement of receipt keeps the sender aware of the status of his message at all times.

Platform Management Module

This module configures a web-accessible environment from which the platform can be managed and monitored. The EDICOM e-invoicing solution lets you define different management environments depending on the needs of the users who need access. So, it is possible to implement different management modules per issuing country, adjusted to the language characteristics and particularities of your e-invoicing process.

Specific Solutions for Issuing Electronic Invoices

If you are part of an international company with subsidiaries and workplaces in different countries, your ERP probably needs to be capable of issuing electronic invoices that are compliant with the laws in each country. These solutions can help you optimize your operations.

Issuing Compliant Electronic Invoices

Our e-invoicing platform performs complex flow integration systems that allow the ERP data structures to be adapted to the different formats in each country where your company operates. These adaptations include signature and code registration processes that guarantee tax control, authenticity and document integrity.

Electronic Invoicing for Public Administrations

Establishing connections with the electronic invoicing systems of each country is a complex task that requires the installation of different point-to-point connectors, depending on the specific administrations involved. Through our Public Administrations HUB, we keep the connections active and constantly updated to offer a level of service availability

B2C Electronic Invoicing

We have developed a service called Business@Mail that enables you to use electronic invoicing with 100% of your customers. This solution integrates with your management system, publishing all the documents sent to customers who cannot process electronic invoices on a portal (companies and individuals). 

Your customers receive automated notifications to securely and easily access a private environment where they can view and download their invoices. 

Specific Solutions for Receiving Electronic Invoices

If you have operations in different countries and receive thousands of invoices from your suppliers, or if you operate in a more local environment but integrating your accounts payable is a challenge, we can offer you a solution that fits with the reality of your B2B project.

 

Receiving Compliant Electronic Invoices

EDICOM’s invoice reception platform works in an integrated way, using a concentrator to gather all invoices for prior validation in compliance with the technical and legal specifications of each country where the receiving company operates. It is also possible to apply numerous syntactic and semantic validation rules to ensure that the received documents meet the customer’s commercial conditions.

Incoming compliant electronic invoices conclude the process through advanced mapping that transforms 100% of incoming electronic invoices into structured data capable of being integrated into the client’s accounts payable system.

Invoice Reception Portal

EDICOM’s invoice reception portal is designed to integrate partners with a medium-low number of invoices who usually send their documents by conventional methods such as mail, fax or email.

With this solution, suppliers simply upload their invoice data to a simple web portal. The invoices stored on the web are then processed like any other electronic invoice, integrating with your management system.
