Collaboration between banks, solution providers and corporates is critical to e-invoicing's future
sharedserviceslink.com CEO, Susie West, to chair a panel debate on the evolution of electronic invoicing at Sibos, the giant financial services event facilitated and organised by Swift, a provider of the industry’s communications platform.
While the number of invoices transmitted electronically around the world is still low, expectations are high for the potential impact e-invoicing can have on not only making organisations more efficient, but also streamlining trade between countries. Hindering this growth, however, are misplaced perceptions, slow take up from the banking sector and regulatory challenges.
Chairing the discussion at Sibos on 20th September 2011, West will explore these areas with representatives from Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Bottomline Technologies, the State Treasury of Finland and Fundtech FSC.
“The corporate world is realising that e-invoicing allows for interesting opportunities with supply chain finance,” says West. “Banks have registered this shift and now want greater involvement in this space. Sibos will play an important role in facilitating this important debate and determining the direction banks take with their e-invoicing strategies.”
André Casterman, Head of Cash, Trade and Supply Chain at Swift, says, “Sibos is about connecting people to advance critical dialogue. Susie and sharedservicedlink.com have been leading the e-invoicing debate in the corporate world by engaging with heads of procurement and accounts payables. At Sibos, bankers will benefit from her experience and insights during the e-invoicing main conference session.”
