How HQEngine's PEPPOL e-Invoicing streamlines AP and AR Automation

Updated: Dec 7, 2023

In an era where the financial landscape is rapidly evolving, businesses face the daunting challenge of keeping pace with increasing transaction volumes. Reports indicate that firms are gearing up for a significant upsurge in payments and invoice processing, with expectations of a 50% increase in payments and a 46% rise in invoices over the next few years​​[1]. This surge underscores the necessity of efficient and streamlined financial operations, where automation plays a pivotal role. HQEngine is committed to streamline the digital transformation journey of businesses, offering seamless management of AP and AR processes through e-Invoicing through PEPPOL standards.


PEPPOL: A Gateway to Global Efficiency


At the heart of our offering is the integration of PEPPOL standards into e-Invoicing. PEPPOL (Pan-European Public Procurement Online) is revolutionising the way businesses handle invoices and orders, making the process smoother, faster, and more standardised.


To send and receive e-invoicing documents you are required to have your solution connected to an ATO-accredited PEPPOL Access Point. By facilitating a direct and standardised exchange of invoices, it diminishes the need for manual data entry and minimises errors, leading to faster processing and improved efficiency. In Australia, e-invoicing has become more than just a trend; it's now already a regulatory requirement for all federal government organisations as of July 2022 for the Australian federal government and quickly moving to all government organisations and businesses around the country.


Streamlined Operations and Cost Efficiency













By adopting PEPPOL within your AP and AR processes, you're looking at a significant reduction in manual workload and a drastic cut in processing errors, translating to faster operations and increased cost efficiency​​.


Switching from traditional invoicing, which costs an average of $30.87 for paper and $27.67 for PDF invoices, to eInvoicing can slash these costs by approximately 70%, streamlining processes and reducing expenses in printing, labor, and filing. This efficiency is particularly crucial for businesses dealing with high transaction volumes.


Enhanced Transparency and Reliability














Moreover, PEPPOL compliance ensures a higher level of transparency and reliability in financial transactions, fostering stronger relationships between suppliers and buyers. It enhances cash flow management, which is a critical component of any business’s financial health​​​​.
