EDI Invoices for Roche Diagnostics
As a supplier to many government agencies including military hospitals, Roche Diagnostics has, since 1 January 2014, been required to issue electronic invoices in the pre-defined ebInterface format to the government. For the implementation of this new federal regulation, Roche Diagnostics wanted to find a solution that could be integrated seamlessly into the existing SAP environment without the need for additional interfaces.
With its expertise in all things SAP and its thorough understanding of the federal government’s requirements, EDITEL made the implementation of this project a breeze. We are very happy with this experience, the level of professionalism of the EDITEL team and, more than anything, with the result! Ernst Linschinger, Senior Project Manager
The e-Invoice solution by EDITEL fit these requirements like a glove. As a first step, EDITEL analyzed Roche’s SAP environment and checked it against the requirements defined by the federal government, in an effort to ensure that the Roche in-house data format was correctly adapted. Subsequently, the solution was implemented, tested and integrated into the federal government’s test system. The last step was the go live.
Almost 100 percent of all electronic invoices transferred to the federal government were accepted as correct. This ultimately meant that Roche Diagnostics successfully implemented the e-invoicing project to the federal government without the need for additional interfaces and with still no more than a single connection to eXite®. Thanks to the close collaboration and coordination between EDITEL and Roche Diagnostics during all phases of the project, it was implemented swiftly and efficiently.
