e-Invoicing drives significant organizational value and is a now must have for large organizations. Yet all too often this value is not fully realised as the project is viewed in the context of a single department, or other success factors are not properly planned for.

Ensure your project is a resounding success by learning best practices and lessons learned in key areas such as change management (both internal and external) and supplier onboarding.

  8. 8. Problems with a Silo‘d e-Invoicing Approach Value limited if only exchanging the invoice (vs. full P2P w/PO)‒ Reduced process cost savings‒ Compliance difficult to enforce‒ More difficult to drive high levels of e-Invoicing‒ Difficult to extend value via early payment discounts without PO / contract match‒ Supplier Onboarding less effective More difficult to obtain necessary stakeholder buy-in‒ Internal Audit, Legal, Tax, etc. Internal adoption limited‒ Change management one of the key obstacles – best with cross functional supportPage 8 © AXA - all rights reserved

  10. 10. AXA e-Invoicing Strategy and Message Key Questions:‒ Which Business (non critical items) is qualified for e-Invoicing?‒ How to determine Suppliers for e-Invoicing?‒ Definition of Priorities / Waves / Timelines‒ What Stakeholders to involve (internal Customer, Buyers, etc.)‒ How to include e-Invoicing standards in negotiations? Key Messages to Suppliers:‒ e-Invoicing is a win-win!‒ Large Suppliers can use full automation/Back-End Integration‒ Small Suppliers can achieve a high degree of automation(ePO  PO-flip  eInv)‒ Invoice status is traceable at any time‒ It‘s not only usable for the relationship with AXA‒ It‘s not always for free (AN fee), but value exceeds costPage 10 © AXA - all rights reserved
