Exchange of electronic invoices across borders.
- Deutsche Post, PayNet, and SAP want to form an
international EBPP (Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment) network
together. The cooperation's goal is to make the exchange of
electronic invoices across borders possible for companies on the
basis of a common technology.
The international solution will be realized in the close
cooperation between Deutsche Post, PayNet, and SAP. Primarily
companies that work with vendors and customers from different
countries will find the new cooperative offer very useful, since the
complete communication of invoices (national and international) can
now be transacted via just one interface.
The focus of PayNet is on linking companies within Switzerland,
while Deutsche Post is primarily integrating companies in Germany and
other countries into the universal network.
Deutsche Post will be offering an electronic platform for Germany
with Document Service Online (DSO) that will be available starting at
the end of 2005. With DSO, the exchange of invoices between two or
more companies can be realized completely electronically. The
international rollout of the DSO solution for sending and receiving
electronic invoices across borders is planned for next year.

of an international network on the basis of developed EBPP

to international service providers, this network will grow further in
