OB10's Charles Bryant Named Vice-Chair for the European e-Invoicing Service Providers Association
EESPA to raise the profile of e-Invoicing through industry co-operation.
London, UK (PRWEB) December 22, 2011
The newly formed European e-Invoicing Service Providers Association (EESPA) has elected Charles Bryant at OB10 (http://www.ob10.com) as Vice-Chair.
OB10 was an early proponent of the idea of a European association and has supported Bryant as he laid EESPA’s organisational foundations in 2011.
During its first annual general meeting, the trade association committed itself to raising the profile of electronic invoicing across Europe by acting as a platform for industry co-operation.
In his role as Vice-Chair, Bryant will support the association and its 37 service providers, nine Executive Committee members and Chair, Esa Tihilä from Basware.
Bryant said, “Organisations are replacing paper invoices with electronic transactions to realise cost savings, speed up payments, save carbon, and improve transparency and liquidity. EESPA will support this market by promoting interoperability and the adoption of e-Invoicing, engaging in policy debate and recommending best practices.
“I’m delighted to play a role in ensuring EESPA fosters collaboration among service providers and helps organisations reap the benefits of e-Invoicing.”
EESPA welcomes new members who provide compliant e-Invoicing services to third-party customers.
EESPA has been formed and registered as an international non-profit association (AISBL) under Belgian law. As a trade association for the e-Invoicing industry, EESPA acts as a platform for industry cooperation on non-competitive issues.
OB10 (http://www.OB10.com), the e-Invoicing network, simplifies and streamlines the complex invoice-to-pay processes. Neither client organisations nor their suppliers are required to implement any hardware of software, and OB10 is independent of data file formats. OB10 can reduce the cost of paper invoice processing by typically 60% and can deliver an ROI in less than a year if the programme follows OB10’s best practice guidelines. Operational across Europe, North America and Asia, OB10 is compliant with the requirements of VAT, tax and e-Invoicing legislation and receives invoices from suppliers across 150 countries. To ensure unrivalled and rapid supplier enrolment, each new customer’s suppliers are supported by an implementation services team responsible for getting them up and running on the OB10 network.
Customers include: Agilent Technologies, Amgen, Aviva, Barclays, BP, British Energy, Cargill, Computacenter, Deutsche Lufthansa AG, DHL, Dr. Pepper, DSG International, Eli Lilly & Company, Fisher Scientific, General Motors, GlaxoSmithKline, HP, IBM, Imperial College, Kellogg’s, Kraft Foods, Logica, Mohawk Industries, Motorola, Pfizer, Sara Lee, Schneider Electric, Severn Trent Water, Shaw Industries, Steria, Tesco, Unilever, US Federal Government, Whirlpool and Xerox.
