Since its release, TIE Kinetix’s Business-to-Government (B2G) e-Invoicing module, as part of their FLOW Partner Automation platform, has been helping customers exchange documents with the government. Now, the module will also start providing the Unit4 Wholesale solutions (Agresso Wholesale and Unit4 Multivers Groothandel) customers with the functionality that allows them to send electronic invoices to national and provincial institutions, local municipalities and other governmental institutions in a reliable and secure way.
The solution offers Unit4 users to exchange documents via one certified connection (“Access Point”) with all their governmental business partners worldwide. Before, companies were faced with a lot of manual processes to figure out which document structure, information, and format to exchange per country. Automating processes became more complex instead of more simplified. The solution of TIE Kinetix takes all this work away and supports all international standards in UBL, XML, EDIFACT, PEPPOL and more. Exchanging documents with partners and new legislation has never been easier for Unit4 customers.
By combining TIE Kinetix’s electronic invoice services with the Wholesale solutions of Unit4 users are able to easily deal electronically with any member of the public sector in a timely manner. The partnership between TIE Kinetix and Unit4 combines strong innovators in software by bringing together two companies with a Dutch heritage. Both companies have a strong focus on removing boundaries to exchange information and simplifying a way of doing business.
Jan Sundelin, CEO of TIE Kinetix: “The demand for exchanging invoices securely via a direct connection from the ERP environment is a trend that is growing rapidly. This new partnership with Unit4, to offer a fully integrated solution directly connected with the Wholesale solutions of Unit4, shows how increasingly important these secure document exchange connections are becoming. Through this joint offering we provide a total integrated solution via our FLOW Partner Automation Cloud based Platform for stability, security, and reliability in their e-invoicing exchange process. Customers of Unit4 are now compliant to upcoming deadline for e-invoicing for governmental organizations and their partners to receive and process electronic invoices by April 2019.”
Fred Loos, General Manager at Unit4: “Unit4 for many years has been a leader in automating wholesalers. As a supplier for ERP-systems and a specialist for this specific target group, Unit4 delivers a broad scope of solutions to deliver support to wholesalers in their core processes. For side processes, Unit4 always looks to work with specialists in their core fields. The partnership with TIE Kinetix is the result of such a collaboration. By integrating with TIE Kinetix’s platform, wholesale customers of Unit4 can comply to the e-invoicing requirements of the Dutch government. By working closely together on this topic, we can already establish an optimal e-invoicing integration and are ready for the future. Even if the government would decide to require a broader compliancy.”
