From B2G to B2B with Massive Chorus Rollout in France


chorus pro

e-Invoicing brings administrative and operational cost savings for businesses. In France, an annual saving of 710 million euros is foreseen with the widespread rollout of e-Invoicing with the Public Administration. The main consequence of implementing B2G e-Invoicing is digital transformation, both in businesses and the public sector. As the rollout of e-Invoicing in the B2G area expands, it could foreseeably lead to the spread of B2B e-Invoicing and a complete digital transformation.

In addition to the public savings arising from implementation of Directive 2014/55/EU, the use of an electronic solution in the B2B scope favours the internal processes of companies and brings them great operational advantages. For example, manual data input is automated throughout the entire e-Procurement process. Businesses will also benefit from improvements in profitability and productivity, as electronic data interchange ensures optimal traceability, which positively influences payment terms.

Companies that already have an e-Invoicing solution are just one step away from being able to leverage this investment and technology to expand their e-Invoicing project to all their trading partners. These companies, having already overcome the technological barrier, can easily extend the system to the rest of their commercial exchanges. Larger companies play a crucial role in extending the use of B2G to B2B, leading to the global dematerialization of business communications.

Healthcare is one of the most developed areas in e-Invoicing uptake, as it involves a multitude of transactions and many partners are included in the process: laboratories, pharmacies, medical device suppliers, etc… The fact that a great many of these large data concentrators are themselves Public Administrations means that their solutions must be adapted to specific particular features, affecting communications or e-Billing processes, among other things.

In this sense, most health sector stakeholders will implement an e-Invoicing solution following the mandatory model set forth in the European Directive. So, why not extend the benefits of this system to the rest of their business relations?

Health Sector manager from EDICOM France, Fedoua Aberkane, explains: “The adoption of compulsory e-invoicing is a big step towards global assimilation of this system in businesses, especially now that big multinationals are starting to require it from their suppliers and trading partners worldwide.

Through an electronic data exchange system, not only can invoices be sent, but, in the health sector, the entire communications flow could be automated and integrated. The main aim is to guarantee the sending and receipt of all e-Documents through a single point of connection independent from communications networks and protocols.

For example, a pharmaceutical laboratory or a company supplying medical devices has to send an electronic invoice to a public hospital or trust. At the same time, the lab, which has already implemented an e-Invoicing solution, can take advantage of the technology to send its orders electronically to its suppliers from the ERP. And going even further, the lab can ask its suppliers to send their invoices or despatch advices in electronic format, so that these documents are also integrated into the laboratory’s ERP. 

The challenge facing the healthcare industry is the integration of these solutions among a wide variety of customers and suppliers of different characteristics and sizes through the exchange of electronic transactions. But EDICOM provides interoperable solutions that are able to adapt to the document issuers’ and recipients’ requirements:

  • Business@Mail: e-Document publishing platform with fast and secure access for recipients to these invoices, orders, salaries/payroll, sales reports, etc. It be integrated with the sender’s EDI or e-Invoicing solution to forward electronic documents in structured format to recipients with no B2B e-Commerce solution.
  • Partner Web Portal: Platform made available to a company’s customers or suppliers so that they can access the web to generate and receive transactions addressed to recipients that require them by EDI.
