- Your solution must be able to register the business user on the Service Metadata Publisher (SMP) through an Access Point.
- Your solution must be able to send e-invoices (and other authorised documents) on the Peppol network.
- Your solution must be able to receive e-invoices (and other authorised documents) from the Peppol network and display the invoice correctly.
- Your solution must be able to capture and maintain the Peppol IDs of your users’ business partners (i.e. customer and /or supplier).
- Your solution is able to lookup the users’ customer or supplier and check whether they are on Peppol network.
- Your solution allows a simplified user process such that the decision making process of sending invoices to both Peppol and non Peppol-recipients is seamless (for example – when the user sends an invoice normally, the system will decide whether to send via email or Peppol network based on whether the recipient is on the e-invoicing network).
