The interoperability in question might be eclipsed soon by the potential of e-Invoicing in term of value creation in the whole financial chain. An attempt to harvest all the significant cost savings and better procurement practices may require a deeper plunge into processes, chasing the data quality, trying to figure the great potential of big data. Something beyond any conventional wisdom that may represent an exhausting effort to overcome received ideas. Quoting Bruno KOCH – BILLENTIS “One major reason is the poor data quality in invoices. Inaccurate information on B2B invoices is a major reason for payment delays. Reducing the proportion of exception handlings might increasingly become a priority. E-Invoicing is an excellent vehicle to combat this quality problem »

That is precisely the purpose of the Exchange Summit on e-Invoicing that will take place 5-6 October 2015 in Barcelona to acquire in-depth information about recent developments and future trends in e-Invoicing. Participants will benefit from a number of keynote speeches, panels and round tables covering interoperability and public procurement and discussions with global thought leaders. Open PEPPOL will raise awareness on how contracting authorities may leverage the CEF “Connecting Europe Facility “program funding for implementing e-Invoicing and e-Delivery in B2G.
