Throughout time, businesses have been at the forefront of technological innovation. From the steam engine and assembly line to the typewriter and eventually the computer, businesses all across the country have been utilizing the latest technologies to improve efficiency, productivity, and profitability.
And two of the biggest proponents of computer-driven technology have been finance and accounting. These departments have utilized computers to improve record keeping, track employee timekeeping and vehicle mileage, forecast sales data, and much more! But one area which businesses still failed to exploit was electronic invoicing, known today as e-invoicing. These businesses were producing their invoices using computers, but not sending them electronically.
Early e-Invoicing and its Problems
The earliest technology available to facilitate electronic invoicing was Electronic Data Interchange, or EDI. While this got the job done, it also brought with it several drawbacks, including a significant amount of overhead and management. Plus, EDI formats were cryptic and had to be prepared by staff with significant training and experience.
Because of these problems, e-invoicing failed to take off, with 85% of all invoices remaining paper based.
