Exchange electronic documents via the PEPPOL network.
What is PEPPOL?
The Pan-European Public Procurement Online (PEPPOL) network enables trading partners across Europe to exchange electronic documents via the PEPPOL network. The documents that can be processed with this include electronic orders, shipping notes, invoices, contracts, and more. Through the Access points, buyers and suppliers can connect to all users of the PEPPOL network. For example, users can connect to the system once, send and receive invoices internationally, and place purchase orders and tenders.
PEPPOL consists of some standards that enable cross-border eProcurement. A contract structure owned by OpenPEPPOL regulates the use of this all. Although the network is not an eProcurement platform, it does offer a range of technical specifications that can be implemented in existing financial and ERP systems.
