While the adoption of e invoicing is largely positive (and inevitable), it can be challenging for many Accountants and their clients to get started. The first phone calls, the first faxes, and the first emails were all sent with uncertainty. Yet they now bind us all together. E-invoicing is no different. Innovative Accountants like you have an exciting opportunity to fly the flag for this new technology.
How does Promis work? Promis works as a ‘data bridge’ that enables businesses to send and receive e-invoices within your accounting system, without having to worry about any of the technology.
Unlike other e-invoicing services that charge based on the volume of invoices, Promis’ simple, flat fee makes e-invoicing affordable – no matter how many invoices you send and receive. As a user of Xero, MYOB or QuickBooks, your annual investment in Promis is only $240 plus GST. The initial 12 months is free of charge so you can try it out first.
While other programs merely help digitise basic paperwork, Promis enables you to create, send and track e-invoices directly between accounting platforms, using raw data for total accuracy and security.
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.
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:
