In a month time EBG goes to Oslo to gather experiences along purchase-to-pay and order-to-cash process focusing a lot on e-invoicing and e-procurement. In Norway, as many now are aware of, the government have taken the decision to mandate authorities to demand a peppol-infrastructure based e-invoice from new and re-negotiated framework suppliers as well as from all other maverick purchases. As from the 1st of July authorities have been forced to demand EHF-invoices.
All well and done?
Of course not, not only is there a need for a massive informations campaign by buyers of all sorts in the public sector. There is a need for internal communication campaigns – as we all are aware of, behaviours do not change over night. There is also the need for solid systems that can take care of and interpret the content set by the chosen EHF-format, strategies for when an invoice is not possible to interpret and how to make sure suppliers are aware of what is and will be asked by them.
What is interesting in Norway, apart from following the development at hand, is the fact that ERP-vendors are offering the standard format through their systems. In the e-invoicing community, yes there is one, ERP-vendors have for long been the talk of the day. Without their engagement no real market development. Well, here they are so what will happen?
On the 12th of September EBG offers an in-depth day filled with discussions and shared experiences from all functions involved in both e-procurement and e-invoicing: IT, procurement, accounting as well as sales on the supplier side. The delegates reflect this take on this subject – they come from procurement, finance, IT and sales.
