BILLIT has successfully completed the AS4EDI eDelivery project

Exciting news! After almost 18 months of hard work and dedication from all participants within the AS4EDI eDelivery project, we can now proudly announce that this project has been completed successfully.

The AS4EDI project is an eDelivery project, co-financed by the European Commission. Managed and coordinated by the University of Valencia and the LMT Group, six participants :Billit (Belgium), OpusCapita (Finland), Viaduct (Sweden), Calvi (The Netherlands), Generix (France) and NetEDI (UK) have been sharing their knowledge and expertise to successfully integrate the AS4 protocol into their certified PEPPOL Access Points.

A lot has happened since our last update

Since our last update, our team successfully completed and passed all CEF Connectivity and Interoperability tests. The successful completion of these tests means that our implementation of the AS4 Access Point is in conformance with the CEF eDelivery specifications and that it can communicate with the AS4 Access Points of the other participants.

By promoting the use of eDelivery, a large number of European entities will now be able to exchange electronic documents across borders based on the AS4 Profile. We look forward to facilitating this exchange across Europe.

The power of collaboration – thank you

On behalf of everyone at BILLIT, we would like to thank Calvi from the Netherlands, OpusCapita from Finland, Viaduct from Sweden, Generix from France, and NetEDI from the UK for their hard work and dedication throughout this project. A special thanks goes out to the University of Valencia and the LMT Group for their efforts in making sure that the project ran smoothly and efficiently.

Status update on AS4EDI

We are proud to announce that our AS4 Access Point is now up and running. The Service Metadata Publisher (SMP) is now online, and we are able to register customers on AS4. The production environments for SMP and AS4 are in the air, and we conducted several tests with OpenPEPPOL, which were completed successfully. We upgraded all our registrations from AS2 to AS4 on the SMP. This means that we are alive and kicking!

Billit's vision on e-invoicing

We believe that bills should be sent and processed automatically, without manual intervention. Not only does this allow for an easier switch to digital, it is also the eco-friendly way of doing business and allows your customers to save time and effort.

E-invoicing enables customers to fully digitize the distribution and subsequent processing of bill related documents. We empower customers to choose their own optimal digital billing journey. E-invoicing ensures faster time till payment and is one of the drivers for excellent customer experience and retention.

The main objective of the Action is to promote the use of the eDelivery DSI (Digital Service Infrastructure) amongst both private and public entities by integrating the AS4 protocol into six certified PEPPOL Access Points and their respective Service Metadata Publishers (SMP). This Action covers the transition from AS2 to AS4 profile in each Access Point of the Consortium members, as well as the upgrade and deployment of their respective SMP. As a result, a large number of European entities that are already using eDelivery services provided by the members of the AS4EDI consortium will have access to the cross-border exchange of electronic documents, according to the technical specification of the EU Core Service Platform, based on eDelivery AS4 Profile.
