Do you want to connect to the PEPPOL e-Delivery Network via a PEPPOL Access Point where buyers and sellers can easily establish connections with any trading partner on the PEPPOL network, both publicly and privately?
Well, let B2BE help you.
Depending on the market sectors you work in, PEPPOL could either be a top priority or not yet on your radar. Governments are increasingly becoming more committed to moving all public sector procurement onto the PEPPOL platform, and its increasing usage on a global scale for business-to-business transactions.
The Business to Government e-commerce model is complex and requires compliance with business laws and conditions due to government agency supervision and intervention. This is where Governments review and select the most suitable enterprise and decide to sign a B2G contract with them.
What is PEPPOL?
PEPPOL is a set of artifacts and specifications enabling cross-border e-Procurement. This is governed by an agreement structure that is owned and maintained by OPENPEPPOL. PEPPOL is not an e-Procurement platform but instead provides a range of technical specifications that can be implemented into existing solutions and services.
PEPPOL enables trading partners to exchange standards-based electronic documents such as e-Orders, e-Invoices, e-Catalogues etc. PEPPOL Access Points connect users to the PEPPOL network and exchange electronic documents based on the PEPPOL specifications. Buyers and suppliers are free to choose their preferred single Access Point provider to connect to all PEPPOL participants already on the network.
The PEPPOL network is a safer way for e-invoices to be requested, this is proven by the fact that governments globally increasingly asking for e-invoices to be sent through PEPPOL.
