14/09/2009: Doxylon with PEPPOL-compliant carryDOX.
PEPPOL - Pan-European Public Procurement Online
The PEPPOL project is coordinating government initiatives related to electronic procurement and invoicing in European countries.
This makes PEPPOL the biggest coordinated roll-out of e-procurement solutions worldwide. PEPPOL is describing formats and ways
to handle electronic commerce and electronic invoicing towards the public sector. If your business complies with PEPPOL
requirements, you comply with both EU itself and PEPPOL-members requirements for handling e-commerce and electronic invoicing. www.peppol.eu
PEPPOL-compliant carryDOX setup
We have initiated the making of a preconfigured PEPPOL-compliant package of configurations for carryDOX.
This will make it very easy for all carryDOX users to automate the exchange of electronic invoices and other purchase
documents with buyers/vendors that adopt PEPPOL specifications.
Sending invoice in a PEPPOL-compliant manner
By installing carryDOX and this configuration the supplier can automate the preparation and sending of invoices compliant to
PEPPOL specification. Among supported actions are; collecting the relevant invoices from ERP, converting to "PEPPOL-format",
adding PEPPOL-compliant signature and sending the invoices in a PEPPOL-compliant manner. All actions are logged and all handled
documents saved. This PEPPOL-configuration can work alongside other configurations sending invoices of other formats through other
channels to other buyers.
Receiving invoice in a PEPPOL-compliant manner
By installing carryDOX and this configuration the buyer can automate treceiving and handling of invoices compliant to
PEPPOL specification. Among supported actions are; collecting relevant invoices from FTP (/SFTP), mail server or WEB Service,
checking PEPPOL-compliant signature, validating file content, WEB-based user approval, conversion to locally needed format and
transferring of invoice to local ERP- or document-/ invoice management system. All actions are logged and all handled
documents saved. This PEPPOL-configuration can work alongside other configurations sending or receiving invoices of other
formats through other channels.
Handling of other purchase documents
For the time being we are focusing on automated, integrated handling of invoices. However, carryDOX may just as well be used for
other purchase documents (converting, signing, sending, receiving). We are working on functionality to automatically match
and handle documents related to the same transaction, like automatically check if an invoice matches its purchase order.
