Safelayer, European leader in the field of security and trust for ICT, took part in the Electronic Invoice and Certified Digitalisation Conference.
At present, many Spanish companies are aware of the maturity the electronic invoice has garnered in the legislative environment and the rapid development of e-bill projects since 2004 and 2005. However, they still have doubts regarding electronic signatures in such specific areas as invoice management and the different ways of signing graphic files like those obtained by digitalising paper invoices.
ASIMELEC, the Business Association with the largest number of Certification Bodies and companies dedicated to Digital Printing and Digitalisation, decided to organise the 1st Electronic Invoice and Certified Digitalisation Conference to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the legal requirements of electronic invoices. It also aimed to explain the various electronic signature formats, present recommendations contained in the legal development of e-invoice regulations, display the auditing requirements for endorsing scanners that can destroy paper, and describe the most suitable elements and solutions for implementing the complete e-invoicing project in companies.
Adrián Moure, Executive Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Alliances at Safelayer, acted as moderator for the roundtable on Technology Providers. The conference, held in Madrid on October 18, was attended by some 140 managers from companies operating in the sector.
