Automated Electronic Invoicing and Document Delivery for Global Businesses


In today’s globalized business landscape, traditional paper invoices are becoming increasingly inefficient and cumbersome. For growing businesses and international organizations, automated e-invoicing processes are no longer a choice, but a necessity. This case study details a project undertaken to develop a comprehensive solution for automated e-invoicing and document delivery, ensuring compliance with diverse international standards and streamlining workflows.

E-Invoicing Challenges

  • Compliance: International businesses face growing pressure to comply with e-invoicing mandates in various countries. These mandates often involve structured e-invoice data exchange through specific B2B or B2G channels, each with unique requirements, highlighting the importance of versatile automated invoice systems. Managing such complexity can significantly impact operational efficiency, accounts payable, and cash flow.
  • Standardization: The e-invoicing landscape is a complex mix of document formats, with UBL being a prominent standard, but not the only one. Ensuring seamless processing requires a solution that can handle the transformation of not only UBL-compliant documents, but also various other formats, into the desired XML, JSON, or PDF outputs.
  • Manual Processes: Manual invoice processing is prone to errors and delays, hindering project delivery timelines and impacting financial visibility.
