TIE Kinetix has signed a contract with the municipality of Rotterdam to help both the municipality and their suppliers with exchanging electronic invoices. With their FLOW Partner Automation platform, TIE Kinetix offers a complete solution for the municipality of Rotterdam, their suppliers, and customers to migrate towards e-invoicing. E-invoices can be processed more efficiently by municipalities, but also for suppliers exchanging e-invoices, the process is easier and the results are quicker to process.
E-invoicing is not unfamiliar for the municipality of Rotterdam. Since 2014, the municipality has started to process incoming electronic invoices. Starting in 2018, the municipality of Rotterdam plans to start digitalizing its outgoing invoices as electronic invoices. Every year companies still send a large number of invoices to the government. Since these invoices are largely processed manually and is very time consuming and expensive, suppliers of the national and local government are required, as part of the new purchasing agreements as of January 1st 2017, to send e-invoices. Starting April 2019 all contracting authorities in Europe need to be able to receive and process e-invoices.
By choosing TIE Kinetix, the municipality of Rotterdam has selected an experienced and reliable partner in the e-invoicing field. With over 30 years of experience, TIE Kinetix is one of the pioneers in e-invoicing. With a clear vision in how to handle and setup these types of projects, TIE Kinetix was the partner for the municipality to make this next step. TIE Kinetix operates and participates actively in the global world of standardization for e-invoicing. As a result of this active commitment and partnership, new developments never come as a surprise for its customers and partners.
In the coming months the official implementation to connect with the municipality of Rotterdam through the FLOW Partner Automation platform will start.
Jan Sundelin, CEO of TIE Kinetix: “As a Dutch company that has 30 years of experience with applications in both the Business-to-Government and Business-to-Business environment, we are proud and honored that the municipality of Rotterdam has selected a Dutch company. This agreement confirms our position as a pioneer in e-invoicing in this market. Because we are actively participating in standardization for e-invoicing, we can help the municipality of Rotterdam with this next step towards electronic invoicing.”
