What is supplier onboarding?

To take advantage of all the benefits of receiving e-invoices, you need your suppliers. After all, they are the ones who have to deliver the e-invoices. To ensure that your organisation receives as many e-invoices as possible, ask them to make the switch to e-invoicing. This process of educating, informing and supporting your suppliers in switching to e-invoicing is called supplier sonboarding.

Organisations that want to receive e-invoices often start with the technical implementation. Very logical, but still it is good to think about the onboarding of your suppliers before the implementation. For example, your suppliers may already be able to deliver e-invoices through a certain channel or many of them may not use accounting software. These are all things you can take into account when implementing e-invoicing. This allows you to make it as easy as possible for your suppliers to deliver e-invoices, which ultimately results in more e-invoices.
