Cut costs and optimize your working processes by receiving 100% of invoices from your suppliers in electronic mode.

01 | Compliant inbound e-Invoices

Reception service for international e-invoices with syntactic, semantic and fiscal validators connected to the main international tax administrations

This solution is based on the commissioning of three key services that simplify the reception procedures for all invoices from your suppliers.

Invoice reception: EDICOM’s B2B communications network provides your suppliers with several options for secure forwarding of their e-invoices. Our communications infrastructure provides private connectivity through our VAN EDICOMNet, or specific point-to-point communication services via AS2, OFTP2, etc.

Legal validation: Our Global e-Invoicing Platform analyses the conformity of all invoices received with the legal and technical specifications in force in each country where you operate. Likewise, the service implements fiscal validators that link up with the relevant tax authority in each case to check that the invoice received has been processed in accordance with each country’s tax regulations.

Syntactic and semantic validation: Invoices that pass the legal validation are subjected to a second control process to ensure that they comply with all the specifications set in the platform in aspects such as formats, compatibility with EDI guides or the presence of all the minimum data required.

Legal safekeeping: The documents are stored in a high availability data centre under the strictest security standards and subject to each country’s legislation.

Integration with management system: Invoices are finally subjected to a data transformation process for integration with your ERP. The platform deploys different administration environments to allow decentralized management and integration by country or region.

02 | Partner web portal

Web integration solution for accounts payable in e-format for suppliers with no e-invoicing solution

EDICOM’s Partner Web portal is designed to integrate all those partners with an average to low billing volume, who usually send their documents by conventional methods such as postal service, fax or email. With this solution, suppliers only have to enter their invoicing details in a simple web portal. This way, the documents recorded in the web will act like any other e-invoices, being integrated in your management system. This way, you can save time and cut running costs for your accounts payable department.

Here are some solution features:

Two-way: Can be used to send purchase orders to your network of suppliers.

Invoice issuing assistant: Purchase orders received are taken as the basis to launch the invoice issuing process. This speeds up and simplifies the task of creating new documents for the supplier.

Importing invoices: It is possible to integrate data file importing functions. This way, if your supplier is able to generate a structured XML file, or CSV, text, etc., they can implement an import wizard to simplify the invoice issuing process.

Legal: The portal implements validation mechanisms that check for compliance of the invoice generated with the technical and legal specifications in force in each country.
