|30.08.2012 Lithuanian Rivile and Estonian Telema connect 8000 companies for EDI|
|The leading EDI operator in the Baltics Telema and the leading business software provider in Lithunia Rivilė formed a partnership, enabling all Rivilė's customers to start using e-invoices and other EDI documents faster and more economically.|
In Lithuania, about 110 million invoices are issued each year and currently less than 2% of them are e-invoices. With trade transactions, there are other documents involved as well--orders, despatch advices, receive advices, etc. Replacing paper-based processes and starting to use electronic orders and invoices will help to save millions of euros for trade companies. One step towards more convenient adoption of e-invoices in Lithuania is made by this new collaboration between Telema and Rivilė.
In year 2012, Telema has been working towards implementing out of the box “Telema Modules” for the most widespread business software solutions in the Baltics. Having a Telema Module in the software is similar to Internet Bank Modules in all business software solutions — they usually come with the basic package or are easily and quickly ordered from the software vendor. Using a software solution that has the Telema Module implemented gives the customers the opportunity of importing e-orders and exporting e-invoices, with a centrally hosted communication with no need for lengthy and costly developments.
Rivilė's Software Development Director Virgilijus Žutautas confirms: "We are excited about this cooperation with Telema that will open up EDI communication to all of our 5000 Rivilė customers. They will be easily connected to Telema's 3000 retailers and 1000 suppliers in the Baltics. Rivilė believes e-orders and e-invoices are not competitive advantage, they are elementary good practices for all companies wanting to optimize their trade processes. Therefore, Rivilė is making an effort to ensure Rivilė customers have quick and easy access to EDI networks."
