The company has customers all over the world and it is very important for them to be able to exchange electronic business documents to customers. Clients range from small to medium-sized international operating companies and public organizations.
Air Liquide wants to be cost-effective in both sales and purchasing processes. The company uses mySupply and VAX 360 to cover all conversions of documents and integration to NemHandel- and PEPPOL infrastructure as well as several VANS operators. Some customers who are unable to receive an electronic document receives invoices as PDF via e-mail. Invoices can not be transmitted electronically or as PDF, distributed to customers by a print operator as postal mail.
The solution used for outgoing documents (invoices, credit) to customers in the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden). Electronic invoices are delivered in accordance with the national rules (OIOUBL in Denmark, EHF, Norway, Svefaktura in Sweden, TEAPPSXML to Finland and PEPPOL BIS to cross border invoicing). PDF invoices are prepared in the customer’s own language and distributed via e-mail. Print invoices are prepared in national languages and distributed by regular mail.
mySupply receive three different internal documents (SAP IDOC) for each invoice to be sent. mySupply receive the invoice, an attachment and a technical document for each invoice. mySupply has developed a solution in which the information from the three different documents are combined and converted into the right format to the customer.
