4Point releases 4Point eInvoice QuickStart, a new and cost-effective way for customers to achieve a total eInvoicing solution

OTTAWA, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ - Four Point Solutions Ltd. (4Point) is a leading Adobe(R) Gold Solution Partner. Headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, 4Point has presence in the United States and Europe. Many leading organizations, including numerous Fortune 1000 companies, have entrusted 4Point as their provider of document-centric enterprise solutions.

4Point's QuickStart Solutions help companies easily institute desired business process automation capabilities, which involves streamlining processes to create a seamless experience that improves efficiency, reduces IT support, and cuts costs. 4Point created an eInvoice QuickStart Solution to help put companies on the right track to delivering significant invoicing results and benefiting from substantial savings

Built with Adobe(R) LiveCycle(R) Enterprise Suite, the 4Point eInvoice QuickStart fully integrates with existing systems, handles complex data flows, allows for digital signing with an add-on module, and ensures secure delivery. The solution lets companies start with a limited deployment, accelerate return on investment, and then expand the solution to include more departments or regions, as desired. Making the change to eInvoicing saves organizations money. Customers benefit from a significant reduction of resources used, faster processes, as well as the satisfaction of going green through paper reduction.

"By means of customer feedback, we noticed an increasing need in the market for rapid deployment solutions that would allow customers to experience a return on investment almost straight away, yet would instill a confidence that further expanding the solution would continue to positively affect their company," said Barrie Ellis, President & CEO of 4Point. "We've built the solution on the Adobe LiveCycle platform to ensure that it can be expanded into a full eInvoice solution or even integrated more deeply into the organization with additional modules from Adobe LiveCycle Enterprise Suite."

4Point has joined with partners SafeNet(R) and GlobalSign(R) to enhance their eInvoice QuickStart solution. SafeNet, a global leader in information security with more than 25 years of experience, ensures complete protection when it comes to communications, intellectual property, and digital identities. GlobalSign, a WebTrust accredited and well-established leader in issuing publicly trusted electronic identities since 1996 enabling secure eCommerce. With the help of these companies, 4Point is offering an eInvoice QuickStart Digital Signature Module in addition to the core module. This module includes services from SafeNet and GlobalSign that will guarantee your eInvoice's security.

"SafeNet looks to partner with companies that can together leverage our areas of expertise and offer customers an easy to use and cost-effective solution which solves an immediate business challenge," said Chris Fedde, president and COO, SafeNet. "This partnership brings to market a highly scalable and secure electronic signature solution, ensuring the authenticity and integrity of eInvoices."

"Our partnership and the release of the 4Point eInvoice QuickStart will let organizations start digitally signing invoices immediately, allowing us to effectively respond to current U.S. and European VAT invoicing needs that require long-term storage often up to 20 years," continues Katsuo Chujo, Director of U.S. Marketing, of GlobalSign.

"4Point's QuickStart solution is a great example of how partners are using Adobe LiveCycle Enterprise Suite to build repeatable solutions that transform the way customer communications are created and securely delivered," said Sydney Sloan, director of LiveCycle product marketing and marketing operations at Adobe.

Customers can purchase the core package, add the eInvoice QuickStart Digital Signature Module, or can extend their 4Point eInvoice QuickStart to include even more benefits, such as additional pre-designed custom eInvoice templates. With pre-packaged and customized options, there is a perfectly tailored eInvoicing solution for everyone.
