Kewill, along with leading logistics research analysts Transport Intelligence (Ti), has published a report based on the results of a recent survey conducted in September 2012.
The report focused on how the use of key logistics and transport related IT solutions have assisted companies in responding to the volatile market conditions and fluctuating customer/consumer demand of recent years.
- LSP & freight forwarding market in recovery
- 80% of respondents reported slight business expansion in the past two years
- 75% expecting growth in 2013
- 30% of forwarders and 3PLs envisage growth by merger or acquisition in 2013, reflecting their sector's stronger cash positions
- Investment in IT solutions is essential for organic growth in today's logistics marketplace
After carrying out a survey on eInvoicing to a selection of organisations, Kewill has summarised the results in this document.
The paper reviews both organisations who currently do eInvoicing, and organisations that do not.
For the organisations that do, what benefits have they seen since implementing an eInvoicing solution and if it living up to their expectations.
For those organisations that do not do eInvoicing, we found out what issues they have come up against which has put them off such a solution, and what will make them look at it in the future.
After reviewing the results, the paper then outlines how your organisation can benefit from a suitable eInvoicing solution.
Yet, even today, very few companies can claim to be trading electronically with their entire supply chain, and even fewer are fully realising the potential cost savings that eInvoicing brings.
Our latest white paper reviews the main barriers organisations face when trying to implement an eInvoicing solution, and what action they can take to overcome these barriers.
