TradeShift’s Supplier Enablement Strategy for E-Invoicing – Should Ariba and OB10 Be Worried? (Part 4) [Plus+]

Regardless of whether or not anyone actually creates such an app on TradeShift, Ariba and others should take not just how quickly and easily users can set up TradeShift but also how they can completely commoditize e-invoicing connectivity without limiting ultimate visibility into payment liabilities. Granted, Ariba and others offer superior capabilities to TradeShift for invoice automation, dynamic discounting and the like.

One of the unique elements of Fast Track relative to Trade Shift’s e-invoicing peers is that companies can sign up for it online without having to work through a salesperson (just be sure you really want to activate it when prompted!) The self-service mentality extends to the TradeShift sales process itself, not just supplier enablement, which in fact is reminiscent of SaleForce.com. The approach of both vendors is to make the initial buying and provisioning a simple process with the ability to then upgrade to a broader solution at the enterprise level later. But if you never want to talk to a salesperson to get basic use and value out of the system, you don’t have to.

Earlier this summer, Tradeshift unveiled a new program called Fast Track to get companies transacting invoices electronically for a relatively low price per document, including all supplier enablement costs and fees for an unlimited number of suppliers. TradeShift shared that the base level bundle for $15,000 per year or $1,500 per month includes 25,000 documents annualized (including invoices and credit notes) and support for invoicing across “standard TradeShift countries.” This includes those in the European Union as well as the United States. TradeShift also notes that, “detailed country specific e-invoicing and e-archiving compliance verification have been made for Austria, Singapore, Netherlands, and the UK, EU, and US.”
