Olivetti announces the launch of a new electronic invoicing solution that allows Italian businesses, as of now, to adapt to the legislation requiring Public Administrations to only accept and pay electronic invoices. This obligation starts from 6 June 2014 for ministries, tax agencies and social security organizations, and thereafter for the remaining public administrations.
This is one of the first services available on the Italian market in cloud mode and will allow businesses to quickly move over to the new digitized systems without having to provide specific resources and computer skills, thereby benefiting from an immediate reduction in costs also through the use of the “pay per use” model.
The solution uses the assets and skills Olivetti has developed in the dematerialization field: based on the HDO – Hub Documentale Olivetti [Olivetti Documental Hub] platform, it combines the transformation of fiscal documents into electronic invoices with substitute archiving services and their sending via email, PEC (certified email system) or the Interchange System of the Revenue Agency.
The new electronic invoicing platform also includes a management dashboard which provides a complete overview, in real time, of the issuing of invoices and allows you to view the status of each (accepted, digitally signed, sent to recipient or incorporated in the substitute archiving system). It comes with a standard configuration that can be integrated with company processes but can also be customized based on the requirements of the business.
The Olivetti solution is aimed at both private companies and Public Administrations: in the first case it handles the billing documents as issued by the company management system or ERP, transforming them into electronic invoices and processing them in compliance with the regulations, as regards both invoicing companies and Public Administration. In the second case, it handles electronic invoices from the Exchange System of the Revenues Agency, places them in Storage pursuant to applicable regulations and delivers them to the Public Administrations in the format they are currently able to handle, allowing them to be ready for the upcoming deadlines set without having to resort to costly interventions on their systems. Specifically, the requirements on the certification of the date, authenticity of the originals and integrity of the content are guaranteed with the Olivetti solution, in compliance with the law, through the inclusion of a time reference and digital signature on each invoice. The «legibility of the invoice» over time and independently from the original format in which it was issued and stored is also guaranteed in accordance with the law.
Offered as part of the HDO suite through the direct channel and Olivetti dealers, as well as Telecom Italia's commercial network, the new service will also be made available as part of the cloud solutions of Telecom Italia's Italian Cloud [Nuvola Italiana].
