Scandinavian bank Nordea has contracted with Nordic IT services vendor TietoEnator for supply and implementation of a business-to-business (B2B) electronic invoicing system. According to TietoEnator, the system – which will be based on its TE financial hub infrastructure – will enable Nordea customers to exchange e-invoices with business partners on a national and global basis. Electronic invoicing is one of the requirements of SEPA which will be introduced in 2008 and interest in B2B e-invoicing is therefore on the increase.
