Basware, a provider of e-invoicing and purchase-to-pay solutions, has successfully built PEPPOL (Pan-European Public Procurement Online) compliant procedures and protocols into all of its e-invoicing solutions, expanding commerce opportunities for its customers across Europe.
The mission of the PEPPOL (Pan-European Public Procurement Online) initiative, co-funded by the European Commission, is to enable EU-wide exchange of electronic invoices and business documents amongst private and public businesses of any size to foster European-wide commerce opportunities.
Staples, a supplier of office and industrial supplies to government agencies and a Basware customer, is one of the first companies to start using PEPPOL e-invoices. Pekka Leppälä, Sales Director, Staples explains why they have adopted PEPPOL e-invoices: "As a supplier it is essential to be PEPPOL compliant to meet customer demands. When sales and invoicing processes are harmonized, it makes the relationship between buyer and supplier mutually beneficial and opens up new business opportunities, particularly against our competitors that may not yet be compliant."
