When talking about e-invoicing it usually comes from a buyer perspective. Receiving an electronic invoice in its basics mean cutting manual handling costs. In the long run standardization and automation mean business control. But what about the suppliers point of view? Even though it is not necessary to actually send an e-invoice in order for the buyer to receive one – surely the idea must be to go fully automated from supplier to buyer? Looking at typical EDI-projects that is exactly what is going on, but looking at the rest of the transactions we hear little from suppliers.

ALD Automotive are in the car leasing business and their customer invoices consist of thousands of rows of data. Data that need to be processed by the customer’s systems. Today ALD Automotive interact electronically with their customers looking at ways to ad value to the transactions through for instance pre-accounted invoices.
