Osborne Case Study
One of the UK’s leading construction, civil engineering and property services business, the Osborne group worked with construction e-commerce specialist OpenECX to increase the volume of supplier invoices processed electronically. It was already processing thousands of electronic invoices, but there was a “gap”: a rump of low-volume supplier relationships still reliant on paper. Osborne “filled the gap”; it encouraged key suppliers to email PDF-based e-Invoices which could be automatically accepted by Osborne’s financial system. OpenECX’s COINS connector enabled EDI-type trading via PDFs for Osborne suppliers.
