    +vat
    Electronic invoicing presents a great opportunity for Italy: digitalize the industrial heart, starting with the relationships between business partners.

    Digital Transformation: B2b… or not to be

    €110.00
    +vat
    The Digitalization of companies can bring multiple benefits, not only to single organizations, but to the entire Country System. B2b, namely the combination of intercompany processes supported by digital technologies that characterize the typical “client-supplier” relationship, represents the select scope to implement this process. Innovation possibilities are, in fact, plenty for businesses that, however, are still a long way from being real “digital organizations”.
