E-Invoicing Has Arrived In Australia
And It Is Rapidly Changing The AP/AR Landscape

E-invoicing has finally arrived in Australia. This means businesses of all sizes are now able to:

  • Send and receive electronic invoices, known as “e-invoices”
  • Spend less time dealing with traditional invoicing concerns (data entry errors, high wage costs)
  • Rely less on paper and PDF invoices
  • Get paid much faster

The Australian Government Will Pay E-Invoices In 5 Days *

The Australian Government is on board saying, “we are working with the software industry to use the Pan-European Public Procurement On-Line (PEPPOL) standard which is internationally established.” To sweeten the deal, e-invoices issued to the Government will be paid within 5 days (and if they’re late, they’ll pay interest). This is your opportunity to leverage this unique situation and demonstrate industry leadership.

* The New Zealand Government is on board too. They will pay E-invoices in 10 days (from 1 July 2020).

E-Invoicing Is NOT The Use Of PDF Invoices

E-invoicing is an automated direct exchange of invoices between accounting software systems, removing the need for manual invoice creation and paper and PDF invoices.

Without Promis, The PEPPOL
E-Invoicing System

Contains A Complex Data Transformation Process

PEPPOL is the international standard for e-invoicing. Like many technology frameworks, creating bespoke integrations can be time consuming and problematic.

Here are some of the things developers and business leaders must address when developing for PEPPOL:

Promis Makes PEPPOL And
E-Invoicing Easy

For Accounting Platforms And Your Users

Promis is the ‘invisible engine’ that enables you to offer e-invoicing services without having to worry about complicated PEPPOL specifications.

Promis handles all PEPPOL translation differences such as rounding, number of decimal places, GST calculations, and discount handling. Whatever your data format is, we’ll translate it into the PEPPOL framework and connect you with a certified access point, so your users can send and receive E-invoices.

Promis Creates These Benefits For
Business Leaders

  • Secure customer loyalty as you embrace new technology
  • Continue to lead your industry or vertical
  • Your users do less data entry as their supplier invoices are being delivered electronically
  • Add a lucrative income stream to your offerings

Promis Creates These Benefits
For Developers And Tech Leads

  • Focus on what you do best, instead of having to invest thousands of hours implementing the PEPPOL framework
  • Work closely with an experienced accounting tech firm who understand compliance and other realities of developing for the accounting industry

Getting Started With E-Invoicing Takes Three Steps

Although the technology behind Promis is cutting edge, getting it up and running is a breeze for Accounting Platforms
like yours. Here is our three-step process:

Step One: Planning

Planning your move into e-invoicing is as important as any technical implementation procedure. The Promis planning process is designed to ensure you and your users get the best experience from e-invoicing. During our planning process, we’ll discuss the following with you:

  • Your unique business case, and the potential commercial value you’ll receive by adopting e-invoicing
  • The ‘moving parts’ you need to be aware of, so there are no strategic or tactical surprises when you pivot into e-invoicing
  • The user experience you must create to provide a valuable experience to your users
  • A comparison between different implementation options
  • And more, customised to your situation and questions

Step Two: Implementation - Your Two Options

Implementing Promis into your system is simpler than you may think. You have two options for connecting to Promis’s powerful engine.
  • We Provide a Customised Connector to Your Platform
    We can build an integration to meet your system’s unique data format,
    or...
  • You Build an Integration to our Simple REST API
    We offer an API that is easy to connect to (much easier than PEPPOL itself).
Either option means you’ll get to market much faster (and cheaper) than working directly with PEPPOL.

Step Three: Success

As soon as your implementation is complete, your users can send and receive E-invoices simply and easily. And you are able to reap the benefits of PEPPOL and the e-invoicing system, without investing thousands of hours in development time.

Promis Has Processed 41,000+ E-Invoices So Far And We’re Just Getting Started

The Promis engine has already processed over 41,000 E-invoices while running in beta, totalling $33 Million in value. Here are some more facts about Promis:
  • The development team behind Promis spent 25,000+ hours developing the system (so you don’t have to)
  • Promis was established in 2015 and has grown into a team of 6 accountants and developers
  • We’ve always had a single goal in focus: How can we eliminate unnecessary data entry and replace it with smart automation.

Take A Look At A Promis Case Study

Aidacare, one of Australia’s largest Healthcare Equipment and Service providers, operates from 23 locations and 50 distribution partner locations. Aidacare currently sends approximately 150,000 to 200,000 invoices per annum, so process improvement in this space was a key goal for the organisation.

One of Aidacare’s major customers, a large Aged-Care provider, asked them to start sending their invoices in a structured data format rather than a PDF.

Problems had arisen due to the customers AP Automation which couldn’t read all the data on the PDF’s requiring human intervention, slowing things down and creating additional manual tasks. E-invoicing removes the need for intervention in cases like this, thereby increasing efficiencies and turnaround times for payment.

In collaboration with the authorised access point, Ozedi, and Aidacare’s accounts payable solution, Basware, we have provided an elegant solution built right into Aidacare’s ERP.

As of 13 August 2019, the very first Trans-Tasman four-corner model for e-invoicing has been live in production and Aidacare has been sending e-invoices to the first of their major customers.

This is a significant improvement for Aidacare and a milestone for the e-invoicing project in Australia. It is one giant leap towards a future-focused e-business world. Aidacare has helped to roll out e-invoicing and are supporting all their customers who are interested in increasing productivity and gaining critical business efficiencies.

Who’s Behind Promis?

Promis was born from the power of automation. Why should you manually process invoices when you don’t have to?
Invoicing data exists digitally in the supplier accounting system, and it needs to end up digitally in the client accounting system. Why waste time interpreting pdf documents? And why should Accounting Software Suppliers be asked to learn PEPPOL individually? Promis leverages technology and automation to save you money, time, and headaches.

The Promis platform was passionately created by a team of accounting tech developers and entrepreneurs with 40 years of combined experience in the online accounting space.

Lead by visionary Alexander Kohl, the Promis team has significant experience across multiple tech platforms, including an accounting platform conversion service with over 100,000 conversions already completed.

Alexander and his team are already receiving praise for their work in simplifying e-invoicing for Accounting System Providers and businesses.
