    When there are needs for accurate, complete, and consistent data across many organisational uses, a services approach to implementing data quality should be considered. Using a single tool set and common implementations reduces redundancy, duplicated effort, and duplicated rules, selecting a single vendor simplifies the licensing, training, and maintenance. in Addition there are benefits for standardising data quality capabilities especially when encapsulated within a set of well-defined services that reduce effort, functional replication, and inconsitency.

    A recent blog posted on All About B2B http://blogs.gxs.com/keifers/2011/06/what-dominique-strauss-kahn-dsk-can... (http://blogs.gxs.com/keifers/2011/06/what-dominique-strauss-kahn-dsk-can-teach-us-about-e-invoicing.html) asks why e-invoicing is so cumbersome. It cites digital signatures as one barrier, the varying legal regulations between countries as a complex minefield and claims that paper-based invoicing can avoid all these. What I’d look to challenge is this misconception that e-invoicing is cumbersome addressing the individual points in turn: 1. Format is not an issue Since e-invoicing was introduced there has been much debate regarding the format to use for presenting invoice data in an electronic format. Many have raised the lack of one common format for buyers and suppliers as a reason for delaying their e-invoicing projects. This doesn’t need to be the case – operators, like Basware, are capable of providing automated format conversions across the 50 formats that exist today. 2. Handling legal requirements Back in 2007, e-invoicing was underused across the EU due to legal uncertainties and operational constraints. The 2006 EU VAT Directive (2006/112/EC) allowed countries to adopt very strict, overly complex and non-practical policies where, for example, possible mistakes in e-invoicing could be classed as non-compliancy for VAT. Since then, there has been a lot of positive development in terms of clearer e-invoicing VAT regulations, which has made shifting to e-invoicing more straight-forward. With the latest amendments to the 2006/112/EC Directive http://register.consilium.europa.eu/pdf/en/10/st10/st10858.en10.pdf (http://register.consilium.europa.eu/pdf/en/10/st10/st10858.en10.pdf), the strict constraints for compliant electronic invoicing have been removed and paper and electronic invoices will be treated equally. All EU member states will need to adopt these new regulations by January 1, 2013. Many countries have however proceeded with a much faster implementation schedule – for example, in Germany the amendment will take effect much sooner, as of July 1, 2011. 3. Digital signatures The digital signature secures the data integrity of the invoice during the sending process and by using the right e-invoicing provider it can be added by an operator as easily as any other piece of information. The above mentioned EU Directive amendment will, however, remove the digital signature obligation once it comes into force. 4. Interconnection is already available One of the biggest misconceived challenges is that multiple e-invoicing operators do not talk to each other. In fact, based on the discussions we have had with the global operator market around 95% of operators support interoperability. Basware has an extensive global interoperability network with over 110 operators – enabling a true global reach for all buyers and suppliers part of this network. 5. Supplier connectivity – solved Connecting suppliers to buyers is essential to the success of any e-invoicing project. Operators are capable of managing the buyers’ supplier communication; gradually shifting suppliers from paper to electronic using automated supplier activation tools and contacting suppliers to find the best approach for them. 6. Global e-invoicing is enabled E-invoicing supports, not hinders, global transactions. E-invoicing providers offer multiple formats and options that automatically comply with differing country legislation and invoicing requirements. Suppliers can send invoices electronically and operators can decide whether to print and post the invoices to countries that don’t yet have the policies in place to receive e-invoicing. 7. Paper and electronic can co-exist Shifting to e-invoicing does not necessarily mean excluding paper from the process altogether. E-invoicing operators are capable of providing 100% electronic supplier invoice sending and 100% buyer invoice receiving, regardless of the format in which the document was originally set up. E-invoicing – when combined with operator provided scan & capture services for handling those invoices still on paper – enables buyers to receive all of their invoices through a single electronic connection. With this operator provided service, all invoices can be handled electronically. 8. Implementation timelines Finally, I’d like to dispel the myth that implementation projects to enable e-invoicing to ERPs takes time. E-invoicing can get started before ERP is ready by implementing a supplier portal, virtual printer, paper to e-invoicing conversion, PDF emailing and simple integrated connection. Customers can see the return on investment straight away. In the digital world we live in now, it no longer stands up as an argument that manually handling paper invoices and ensuring they comply with every piece of country legislation is easier than doing it electronically. Globalization has become a reality because of technology and the Internet and e-invoicing is not preventative to this.

    It’s not news that consumers are in love with tablets. Forrester Research estimates (http://blogs.forrester.com/sarah_rotman_epps/11-01-04-us_tablet_sales_will_more_than_double_this_year)that over 26 million people will be using tablets  this year and growing to 82 million in four years, in the US alone.  As consumers pull more and more tablets off the shelves globally, many businesses are setting out to engage with a potential new audience on a brand new canvas. (http://blogs.webtrends.com/blog/2011/06/30/telegraph-improves-their-ipad-app-using-webtrends-mobile-analytics/tgv1-2/) In 2010 Telegraph Media group identified the mobile tablet as a key investment to expand the readership of their publications and launched their first iPad application in late Summer 2010. But was it a good investment for them and what could they evolve it to? After the initial launch they took a hard look at the feedback they received from their customers and internal teams, and evaluated how they actually used their application with Webtrends Mobile App Analytics (http://www.webtrends.com/Products/Analytics/Mobile). Using Webtrends they were are able to discover: Tablets are used at specific times of day – They identified different patterns and time of day their readers consumed their content. Peak times were earlier and later in the day than desk top viewers and higher on weekends. Great insight to inform the new subscription model. Tablets apps are good mechanisms to drive loyalty and retention. They saw continuous growth of the returning readers since launch. Important ingredient for advertising sales. Tablet engagement and usage is high. Average time spent (over 10 minutes/session) in application is higher than PC website. Another important ingredient for advertising sales. Improved the reader experience of their app based on observations of how people interacted with the app’s navigation. Great content and usable design is critical to ensure ongoing use. (http://blogs.webtrends.com/blog/2011/06/30/telegraph-improves-their-ipad-app-using-webtrends-mobile-analytics/time-of-day-trends/) With an understanding about how their audience used their applications, they were able to prove that they were on the right track with their mobile strategy. Armed with a proven ROI they were able to grow their investment leading to a second iteration of their iPad application (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/apps/8432762/Telegraph-iPad-Edition-App.html), released on 5/5/11, featuring a new business model, more content, and an improved design. Telegraph provides a great example of how to successfully iterate on a mobile strategy using solid business intuition informed by quantitative  and qualitative insight about their customers. To learn more about Telegraph’s mobile strategy and findings from their foray into Tablet applications, check out our recently recorded webinar (http://understanding.webtrends.com/forms/WBRMAMAY2411MobileTablets?source=WebInquiry&details=60068).
