Direct delivery via Peppol and other third party networks

The delivery of e-Invoices to public authorities often involves the need to follow special delivery protocols. Direct delivery via third party networks such as Peppol (worldwide) or FatturaPA (Italy) can be a simple and straightforward process when using ecosio’s EDI services.

It is possible to deliver invoices to any recipient via any desired protocol – there is no need to draw up separate contracts or implement special technical connections. We support all commonly used protocols such as X.400, AS2, OFTP2, SFTP, Peppol, Web Services, etc. Further, with the use of ecosio API, the delivery status of your invoices can be directly displayed in your ERP system.

How does ecosio’s EDI solution work for electronic invoicing?

ecosio’s managed solutions are the easiest way for you to stay on top of the various requirements for incoming and outgoing electronic invoicing. ecosio’s Integration Hub constitutes the key link between your ERP system and your business partners. Electronic invoices in different formats and all types of protocols are thus processed via a variety of exchange protocols.

Outgoing invoices

Outgoing invoices are created in a business’s ERP system and transmitted to ecosio’s Integration Hub in a structured export format of your choosing – we can process CSV or XML as well as EDI formats like EDIFACT or ANSI X12.

As soon as the exported file is received by ecosio’s Integration Hub, it is automatically converted to the preferred target format based on the sender, receiver and document type information, and delivered accordingly.

The delivery process is customisable to the requirements of the invoice receiver, and includes

  • Structured formats such as EDIFACT, XML, CSV etc. for successful EDI Integration
  • PDF attachments per Email (with delivery confirmation)
  • Direct delivery via third party networks such as Peppol

Incoming invoices

ecosio Integration Hub receives incoming invoices from various senders and converts them to the central import format of the ERP system. Any invoice format can be received– EDIFACT, XML, ANSI X12, CSV, etc.

We support different processes depending on the prerequisites of the invoice sender.

Structured formats

Suppliers who support fully automated invoicing processes may send their invoices in structured formats such as EDIFACT, XML, CSV or similar. Delivery follows in commonly used protocols like X.400, OFTP2, AS2, SFTP, Peppol, Web Services, etc. The delivery status tracking information sent to the ERP system is stored in ecosio Integration Hub, creating a detailed status report for any invoice. Additionally, ecosio’s deep integration allows this information to be displayed in the ERP system.

Sending via WebEDI

Suppliers who do not support fully automated invoicing processes can record electronic invoices via a web interface using our WebEDI. Data added to a web form is then validated and converted to the desired ERP import format by ecosio. This process makes the most sense following an electronic order, since most of the data in this case is simply transferred from order to invoice. This scenario is convenient and reduces the risk of input errors. The delivery status may also be viewed using the services of ecosio Integration Hub.

Receiving via third party networks

Should your suppliers issue electronic invoices via third party networks such as Peppol, FatturaPA or similar, ecosio can handle these too. Invoices from any sender can be received in any structured format.

Archive

Access all invoices anytime

Easily access original sent invoices, all converted intermediate states and the converted final invoice file, which was delivered to the recipient using the archive API. This can also be incorporated in your local business archive (for example, via ArchiveLInk for SAP).
