Leading ERPs support e-invoicing

In 2016, Telema Certified Partners have been busy upgrading their Telema EDI module. In addition to EDI invoices (mostly used for invoices for goods) , the ERPs now also support sending and receiving e-Invoices corresponding to Estonian e-invoice standard (mostly used for invoices for services).

Upgrades include compatibility with Telema eFlow - a solution for cost allocation and electronic approval of purchase invoices. Currently, Telema eFlow can be implemented quickly and easily with the following software and support companies:
  • MS Dynamics NAV by BCS Itera, HÄT Systems, Columbus Eesti, Fujitsu and Aptus Group
  • Directo by Directo
  • SAF by Sysdec
  • PMEN by San Revilo 
  • VERP by Gaiasoft
  • Tresoor by Tresoor Tarkvara

As the interest towards e-invoicing solutions is growing rapidly, also other ERP support partners are upgrading their Telema EDI Modules to add e-invoicing and Telema eFlow compatibility.
