EDICOM will be at the Public Affairs Ireland Annual Procurement Conference
Ireland is also moving towards EU compliance regarding e-Invoicing and e-Procurement. This event, organized by Public Affairs Ireland (PAI) at the Croke Park (Jones' Road, Drumcondra, Dublin 3) on November 10, is aimed at discussing about different topics related to the upcoming EU Directives regarding e-Invoicing, which come from the Digital Single Market initiative.
As of November 27, 2018, e-Invoicing is becoming mandatory for EU Public Administrations, meaning these public entities and its suppliers will have to implement an electronic data interchange (EDI) solution to be compliant with this legislation.
To this aim, the conference will focus on e-Procurement and the adoption of the European standard PEPPOL for e-Invoicing, and on the impact this new system will have on SMEs and in the cross-border procurement competition.
At EDICOM we have more than 20 years’ experience in EDI and e-Invoicing. We will be at the conference presenting our e-Invoicing integral solution and answering all your questions about the EU requirements and compliance services.
Other countries are already implementing their e-Procurement system, either by using the PEPPOL infrastructure or by creating their own single portal for the incoming e-Invoices. This is the case in Spain, France or Italy, for example. However, thedevelopment and growth of PEPPOL is remarkable in many EU countries. PEPPOL is becoming increasingly consolidated as a network with infrastructure and standards recommended by public bodies of these countries and uptake is growing, thanks to its effectiveness and the harmonization of communications between countries. This happens in countries like Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, or Austria.
The UK is also implementing an e-Procurement system in its NHS sector. The Department of Health (DoH) decided to create a progressive adoption timeline, to facilitate the way into digitization, both in the different health trusts and organizations and their supplier companies. This project in the health industry includes the mandatory adoption of GS1 and PEPPOL standards for every actor in the process.
At EDICOM we also offer a full integrated EDI and e-Invoicing platform, which will make electronic data interchange automatic and immediate with full document traceability.
Accreditation as a PEPPOL Access Point enables EDICOM to link up with the PEPPOL platform, through which private companies and governments in Europe can exchange e-Documents of any kind.
Moreover, Edicom has a global Public Administrations HUB that ensures connectivity with any public body, transparently for the user and adapted to the legal and fiscal requirements of each country. Communications with any public body are automated through this HUB.
