e-Invoicing leaders sign interoperability partnership

OB10 (http://www.OB10.com), the global e-Invoicing network, and Anachron, the leading e-Biller in Europe, are the first organisations to use the Model Interoperability Agreement, recently launched by the European e-Invoicing Service Providers' Association (EESPA), as the basis of a contract to interoperate within the Benelux region.

Commenting on the value of EESPA's agreement, Gary Benson, VP Corporate Development, said, "As a neutral and comprehensive starting point, the Model Interoperability Agreement makes the contracting process quick and straightforward. In particular, it supports a number of legal frameworks, which are critical to processing fully compliant electronic invoices for our customers."

Frank Hoekstra, CEO of Anachron, adds: "The Model Interoperability Agreement contributes heavily to the general acceptance of international e-Invoicing among the users, our clients. Providing multiple delivery channels and improving roaming options are key to the development of the global e-Invoicing market and are finally enabled by the standardised contract."

The agreement between OB10 and Anachron will facilitate the exchange of e-Invoices through both networks.
