Automated eInvoicing replaces expensive paper-based invoice management

If you do business in a market increasingly relying on eInvoicing, you will need to stay up to date to maintain competitive advantage. Invoice digital transformation from Transalis can help you.

Keeping on top of incoming invoices is a thankless task for already overstretched accounts departments. Much of it involves mundane administrative duties prone to human error at every step. This leads to costly blockages, disputes and payment delays as issues are unravelled.

The task is made even more complex if the business is trading across borders as different countries will have different approaches to compliance and regulation.

Security and compliance

Think how easy it would be if all invoices arrived directly onto an eInvoicing platform for digital processing. No more capturing invoices arriving on disparate systems such as post, fax or email. No more re-keying into your systems. No more human errors or missing invoices.

Compared with paper-based systems, the electronic exchange of invoices can reduce costs by up to 80% and improve security, regulatory compliance and auditing time.

The need to improve efficiency in invoicing has been especially heightened by Brexit with companies facing a deluge of new documentation requirements for cross-border trading and customs checks.

UK meat and fish exporters, the Road Haulage Association and Marks & Spencer are among the industry players warning of serious disruption to freight movements in and out of the country because of the new red tape.

Some retailers, including the department store chain John Lewis and luxury food brand Fortnum & Masons, even took the step of suspending overseas delivery services until arrangements improved.

To prepare customers for trading post-Brexit, the Transalis team spent much of 2020 adding new document categories to its suite of eInvoicing options.

We wanted to give those manufacturers, retailers and suppliers who use our solutions the best chance of ready compliance with customs rules and required document formats as they seek to continue seamless trading of goods between the UK and EU.

Minimising errors

We aim to take pain out of the process. That includes minimising the risk of human error in invoice data entry so customers can avoid having to spend time carrying out corrections and delaying despatch.

Adopting eInvoicing is a common sense decision as it complements the requirement for customs declarations where exports or imports are a key element of the business mix.

Accuracy and speed

eInvoicing enables you to identify blockages and inaccuracies instantly so disputes can be rectified immediately.

You benefit from a full audit-trail of invoice processing and automatic validation of correct invoices with no requirement for human intervention.

Transalis’ eInvoicing platform provides you with instant real-time-reporting to receive an accurate in-the-moment view.

You also have a deep-store digital archive of invoices to reduce your retrieval and auditing costs.

The benefits of invoice digital transformation are many. Making the switch to digital saves you time on unnecessary administrative tasks and saves you money on resource. It also improves your overall cashflow by avoiding invoice process blockages.

Supply chain benefits

Suppliers, customers and partners have varying degrees of IT expertise. By making improvements, individual companies can together boost the interoperability of their supply chains.

This is because multiple formats for invoice processing exist in different countries and customs regimes. Being able to format and pre-validate invoices helps with tax and contract compliance and makes overall trading arrangements smoother.
