As P2P department focuses on all possible process optimisation areas, automation and streamlining to cut costs: turning invoicing part into electronic invoicing to minimise human intervention is one huge piece which could save costs and increase efficiency.

At the same time since 1st January 2013 electronic and paper invoices has to be treated equally in the European Union.
