E-invoicing: working towards a cooperative space

Exciting times for E-invoicing: developments are accelerating again. Now more than ever, it is key to remember what will ignite the e-invoicing market and bring it to ubiquitous penetration in society.  The industry needs to come together and define a cooperative space.

This will only work when players share a common perspective and goal. This takes time. For more than a decade, we have been working to make e-invoicing reality. Will it finally happen this time?

Innopay has a viewpoint on how parties can cooperate to capitalise on this value.
