Some customers request their invoice in PDF format, others want an XML version for direct accounting software integration, yet others will stick to paper invoices. The result ? Switching to electronic invoicing is a more complex process than before. Handling exceptions takes time. Cost reductions are harder to reach than expected.

Babelway enables to really simplify the invoicing process and achieve rapid cost reductions while addressing positively the requests of your clients. How? You send your invoices to Babelway via one single method and Babelway sends them the way your customer wants (electronic or paper). The customer wants a change to the format or to the reception electronic address? No problem, Babelway handles the request automatically. You don’t have to do anything. That’s what we call the ‘full monty’.

Using the Babelway platform to send invoices brings multiple benefits in addition to simplification and cost reductions as we explained in this article: 5 reasons to use an integration platform.

You are then able to track the sending of your invoices, check the reception by your customers, download or resend invoices. Babelway also archives securely for a period of 10 years in accordance with legal requirements. The advantages are obvious: no paper archives anymore, cost reductions and higher customer satisfaction
