Our last PEPPOL report shows that we processed over 100,000 PEPPOL documents in October alone! This is our most successful month so far and once again proves that, thanks to the hard work of our talented team, we’re leading the way when it comes to PEPPOL.
The PEPPOL Project
The PEPPOL project has been a big one. It’s an integral part of The Department of Health’s Scan4safety campaign and aims to get all NHS Trusts and their suppliers onto one, interoperable network. This means that all messages will be standardised, automatic and traceable.
We’re the experts when it comes to connecting trading partners electronically, which is why NHS Supply Chain selected us to provide their PEPPOL solution. As well as having processed over 100,000 documents in one month (112,259 to be exact), we’re the number one PEPPOL solution provider for the NHS overall.
The implementation of PEPPOL throughout the NHS will result in real-world benefits for both health care professionals and patients.
These benefits include surgical staff being alerted if expired stock is scanned to a patient at the point of care, and product recalls taking far less time to put into effect. PEPPOL will also reduce the number of errors and invoice queries, and the automation will save money across the board.
We provide an integrated PEPPOL solution that not only allows our clients to be part of the PEPPOL network but integrates their PEPPOL messages with their back-office system as well. This means that suppliers can view all their important data and PEPPOL messages from one, easy-to-use platform.
Going forward, we will continue to support the Department of Health and the NHS by onboarding more suppliers and increasing the usage and uptake of PEPPOL throughout the industry.
Connecting to PEPPOL is compulsory for suppliers that want to trade with the NHS. If this describes your company and you want to learn more about complying with the new rules, or your PEPPOL provider is dragging their feet, get in touch today using the options at the top of the page. One of our experts will be happy to talk you through the implementation process.
