Centrica, the international energy company and one of the UK’s largest gas and electricity providers, will be adopting OB10’s electronic invoicing (e-invoicing) solution, joining other utilities providers including Severn Trent and Scottish Water.
OB10’s end-to-end e-invoicing solution will aim to streamline Centrica’s accounts payable (A/P) function, by automating the ability to accept supplier invoices in a wide variety of international invoice data formats. Adopting this approach may help Centrica to maintain its position as a leading supporter of the Prompt Payment Code (PPC).
“We are delighted that Centrica has made the decision to join our e-Invoicing network,” said Luke McKeever, chief executive officer (CEO) of OB10. “Our continued growth in the provision of e-invoicing services to utilities companies has seen a dramatic increase in the number of associated suppliers who are using our platform to send invoices to their customers in this sector.”
