    Electronic invoicing: a chance for change

    €190.00
    +vat
    Electronic invoicing presents a great opportunity for Italy: digitalize the industrial heart, starting with the relationships between business partners. However, this will only be possible if companies can start to recognize the benefits of this “forced digitalization” and if they understand how to extend it to other processes.

    Supply Chain Finance: tomorrow is already here!

    FREE
    The Italian context appears to be extremely attractive for the Supply Chain Finance market, especially due to the outstanding amount of working capital of Italian companies. However, some elements of investigation are necessary. Who are different actors that are entering this world? Which are their business models? Which are the costs and benefits of SCF solutions? How does a company choose the best solution for their suppliers? Which are the different sources of information that need to be taken into account when implementing a SCF solution?

    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”.

    €110.00

    Using electronic invoicing for public authorities has helped in clarifying the situation on the digital front. The offer in this field is wide, diverse and layered. The potential benefits (in both monetary and non-monetary terms) of using digital solutions are both tangible and significant. Alongside the opportunities for simplifying the procedures that are materialising are the incentives put in place by the legislator to open the way to B2B electronic invoicing. It is now up the companies to make their move.
