Understanding PEPPOL

Devised by the European Commission, PEPPOL (Pan European Public Procurement Online) connects public bodies and private companies by providing them with an electronic trading network for their supply chain documentation.

The stated attraction for Suppliers is "Connect to one - Connect to all". 

The EU PEPPOL directive will soon compel all public sector bodies to have the capability to receive electronic invoices from their suppliers. PEPPOL creates multiple efficiencies for your business by reducing costs, eliminating paper, reducing query times and speeding up the flow of goods.

Celtrino were the first PEPPOL access point provider in Ireland, and have been involved since the early days in helping to define the PEPPOL standards.

Celtrino handle the implementation process and continually offer on-going support, as well as providing exceptional customer service with immediate response time.

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