Understanding PEPPOL

Devised by the European Commission, PEPPOL (Pan European Public Procurement Online) enables you to trade electronically with Public Sector organisations.

You can transact with your public sector customers by connecting to Celtrino's system, and issuing the appropriate supply chain documents (e.g. invoice) which are then transmitted to the buyer, without the need for manual intervention.  

In November 2016 Celtrino were granted a place on the UK’s NHS PEPPOL framework, allowing suppliers to conduct business electronically with the NHS.

Celtrino also help suppliers to connect with the Irish Department of Education
