Why is old school invoicing a cost?
The reason why suppliers avoid e-invoicing is because they do not get the advantages. Do you recognize this pattern:
- A buyer invites you to a bespoke e-invoicing solution
- The solution relies on specific document syntax and content requirements
- As it is a buyer specific, the expected lifecycle is uncertain and re-use limited
- The more solutions you support, the more resources you need to maintain
In summary: there are no economics of scale to be found
