eInvoice conformance testing completed with CEF Digital

We are honored to share with you that Unimaze successfully finished eInvoice Conformance testing with CEF Digital as part of the POOL-TSPs project (2017 CEF Telecom Call - eInvoicing; CEF-TC-2017-3). The objective of the project is to upgrade 10 e-invoicing solutions (certified OpenPEPPOL Access Points) to comply with the European Standard (EN) on electronic invoicing.

OpenPEPPOL network - a global network

OpenPEPPOL is a non-profit international association which consists of both public sector and private members, which purpose is to enable European businesses to easily deal electronically with any European public sector buyers in their procurement processes, thereby increasing opportunities for greater competition for government contracts and providing better value for tax payers’ money.

The PEPPOL network is growing. Nowadays, PEPPOL is used in 32 worldwide countries between Europe, Asia and North America.  In April 2018, the German National IT Planning Council decided to mandate use of the PEPPOL eDelivery Network for transport of e-invoices to public authorities in Germany. Also, in Ferbruary 2019, the Prime Ministers of Australia and New Zealand announced that both countries had the intention to use PEPPOL in order to gain and encourage the exchanging of electronic documents.

The testing, performed with CEF eInvoicing test platform, ensures compliance of Unimaze's solution of he specified syntaxes: UBL 2.1 (ISO/IEC 19845:2015) and CII (UN/CEFACT Cross Industry Invoice D16B).

The POOL-TSPs project

This project called "Adoption of the eIncoiving Directive through interconnected platforms of European Trust Service Providers" (POOL-TSPs in short) is supported by the European Union through the „Connecting Europe Facility“ (CEF) program.

The POOL-TSPs project has several benefits for all public and private parties such are reduction of processing costs and time, reduction of storage costs, reduction of printing and postage costs and better message tracking. We are very proud to be a part of this project.

In this project integration tests are conducted by exchanging e-invoices between consortium members from seven EU/EEA states, namely Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Iceland, Ireland, Italy and Sweden.
