PEPPOL Access Point
The accreditation process for PEPPOL can be quite complex and as PEPPOL utilises a four corner model it means there are many requirements over and above standard EDI which requires reporting and ongoing support.
PEPPOL document set
PEPPOL Specific standards
PEPPOL uses its own set of standards which means these need to be understood and managed as part of the accreditation process and for on-going support and maintenance.
Connect once, connect to many
Once connected with the PEPPOL network via B2BE, organisations can trade with multiple trading partners who trade on the PEPPOL e-delivery network.
Enrichment and validation
B2BE understands that while a sender sends data they have available to them in their systems a PEPPOL receiver may need different data to integrate the documents so enrichment of files can occur on the fly. Similarly as an Access Point B2BE validates invoices to ensure the sender’s data will not simply create errors and more effort to rectify than if the document was sent manually and meet with PEPPOL’s standards.
The B2BE EDI network is an ‘any to any environment. The PEPPOL standards are supported similarly are any custom documents. In fact B2BE believes why translate something to only translate it into something else. Translate on the fly based on what the sender can send and B2BE will manage the PEPPOL formats.
Immediate access to the PEPPOL network
Broader EDI suite
While PEPPOL gives you an entry point into trading partners who use PEPPOL there are others that still use standard EDI networks or who have electronic trading requirements. B2BE’s EDI solutions means that not only can you trade with PEPPOL trading partners but you can also connect to your other EDI based trading partners through one network.
Document Management base
Once trading with PEPPOL based trading partners, and perhaps other EDI trading partners, it’s a relatively small step to create a fully managed Document Management solution. PEPPOL and EDI invoices with email and print management, for example will ensure all your customer invoices are automated and your customer’s requirements covered.
