Anachron provides e-Invoicing solution for Tommy Hilfiger
Anachron, Europe's fastest growing provider for portal solutions for document presentment, announced that Tommy Hilfiger Europe is now live with an e-Invoicing service. The e-Invoicing portal is presented in the look and feel of Tommy Hilfiger's corporate website. The e-Invoicing service, based upon the Anachron software-as-a-service (SAAS) platform, complements the existing online self service capabilities offered by Tommy Hilfiger to its non-EDI buyers.
Frederick Kolff, Tommy Hilfiger Europe's Vice President of Credit Management explains, “For our larger customers, we were already offering a solution for sending invoices via EDI. We wanted to eliminate paper invoicing for all our non-EDI customers as well, in order to improve our order-to-cash process.
"E-invoicing will speed up the invoicing process while maximizing our control over the process. Anachron's e-Invoicing solution will enable customers to benefit from electronic invoicing effortlessly and without forcing them to commit to fees and integration work. Equally important to us is the fact that electronic invoicing is another step in reducing our carbon footprint.”
Tommy Hilfiger Europe has selected functionalities from the off-the-shelf modules offered by Anachron. These include the Single-Sign-On functionality to provide buyers with access to the e-Invoicing service with their existing user account and password and the support of various document formats, including PDF, Excel and XML. The e-Invoicing portal, which contains an advanced search functionality, is available in English, German, Dutch, French, Spanish, and Italian. Frank Hoekstra, CEO Anachron adds, “We are delighted to deliver the e-Invoicing services for Tommy Hilfiger Europe. With our solution, Tommy Hilfiger is able to deliver invoices faster and more efficiently.”
“We have selected Anachron as our partner to deliver the e-Invoicing solution because of their international e-Invoicing references. We issue cross border invoices, which requires a partner with a comprehensive solution that complies with both local and European e-Invoicing regulations,” concludes Frederick Kolff.
