The EdiPax for ETIS is designed to fulfill the needs of all sizes and types of businesses which receive telecommunication invoices. The main idea of the solution was to eliminate the manual dataentry of the invoiced items by an automated process of importing standard electronic data. At the same time, the imported data are subject to thorough analyses which aim to find saving opportunities. Of course, the data, once imported and converted from the EDIFACT standard into a more comprehensive format, are ready to be stored, archived or exported in the company's Information System, such as SAP. Thanks to the technology used for the development of the application, users have the opportunity to read the data in the office applications they use everyday. Like that, they can easily read and analyse the data in MS Excel and prepare any individual chart they may wish.

Important part of the solution is that it supports the Microsoft .Net technology and therefore, the data stored on a central server, can be accessed from virtually anywhere, for example through the company intranet or even from outside across the internet. We do not have to mention that security issues have been taken into account.

The EdiPax for ETIS application is a tool which will give it's users an opportunity to realize significant savings on telecommunications:
a) because it automates the process of receiving the invoice data
b) because it provides good control over the spending of the company

The application can import EDIFACT INVOIC message according to the specifications of European Telecommunications Informatic Services (ETIS) which is being implemented as a standard in the telecommunication sector. ETIS has developed this standard as a subset of the UN EDIFACT INVOIC message. All customers of major European telecommunication providers will get the opportunity to receive their invoices for voice and data services through this electronic mean instead of sheets of paper.

This fact will open a wide spectrum of new opportunities for them. Not only that they will no longer be forced to input the invoice items manually in their information systems, but they will finally get much better control over their bills and will be able to make qualified decisions as for where to realize savings.
