We keep hearing from enraged enterprises that some e-invoicing service providers still continue with their old 3-corner strategy > signing up big invoice reveivers and
trying to force suppliers to sign up with this particular service provider.
Especially angry comments come from those who already have a functioning relationship for their large volumes in the domestic market – and then for
artificial lack-of-interoperability reasons – the 3-corner operator tries to force them to become customers - sometimes even with the support of the buyer..
This slows down e-invoicing adoption, is anti-competitive and is not a sustainable model for any operator. The sooner it becomes so-last-season the better for the customers and society at large.
