Partner onboarding involves working with a partner to set up a working and reliable EDI connection between your system and theirs. Partner onboarding involves several different steps, including defining EDI requirements, creating a message implementation guide (MIG), and message exchange testing. Depending on the type of connection desired, the process may also include other steps such as providing your partner with access to a Web EDI platform. For partner onboardings to be completed successfully and on time, it may be necessary to chase partners for information and feedback regularly.
Peppol stands for Pan-European Public Procurement OnLine. Contrary to what some think, Peppol is not an e-procurement platform. Rather, Peppol provides the methodology and technical specifications as well as an agreement framework to send documents between e-procurement partners. The Peppol network was developed by non-profit organisation OpenPeppol to support the automated exchange of electronic messages relating to cross-border procurement. Currently, Peppol is the only transmission channel that enables machine-to-machine (M2M) automation and mass export of e-invoices.
