Kuala Lumpur, 19 January 2021 – Censof Holdings Berhad (“Censof” or the “Group”), a technology holdings company specializing in financial management software solutions, through its subsidiary company, Asian Business Software Solutions Sdn Bhd (“ABSS”) has formed a strategic partnership with Storecove, a SaaS e-invoicing solution provider headquartered in The Netherlands and with offices in Germany and Australia.
With this partnership, ABSS and Storecove will provide an electronic invoicing solution to small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”) in Singapore, ensuring a faster and more sustainable way to transact, nationwide and worldwide, through the adoption of the Singapore Government’s nationwide e-invoicing initiative, namely InvoiceNow.
Built on the Global Peppol Network, InvoiceNow facilitates the direct transmission of invoices in a structured digital format across finance systems, resulting in a smoother invoicing process, faster payments, and a greener environment
Invoicing Efficiency for Singaporean SMEs
The adoption of e-invoicing helps businesses to improve efficiency by minimizing human errors, reducing costs, reducing the payment processing period, and being more environmentally friendly.
Storecove’s modern Application Programming Interface (API) provides seamless integration with its partners’ software platforms to offer e-invoicing functionality as part of its customer solutions, whereby all incoming and outgoing invoices are automatically received and sent.
“Digitalisation is in play in almost all aspects of the business functions. It is imperative to accelerate the use of digitalization in the SMEs in the Southeast Asia region to gain a competitive edge in the global market. In view of this, we are excited about the opportunity to partner with Storecove, which has a great track record in assisting tens of thousands of companies to improve their invoicing speed and efficiency.
Together with ABSS, as the leading accounting software provider to the Asian SME market, we hope that the partnership will bring improved invoicing efficiency to over 30,000 Singapore SMEs, saving page 2 of 3 valuable time.
We have recently surpassed 1,000 InvoiceNow registrations and looking forward to see more businesses benefit from the free sending and receiving of e-invoices directly from our ABSS and FInancio accounting software.
We will continue our effort in transitioning the SMEs to achieve digital proficiency, in the near term,” said Rhys Brown, Chief Executive Officer of ABSS.
E-invoicing in the Asian market
“We are impressed by the uptake of e-invoicing in the Asian SME market and are proud to be part of this swift growth. ABSS has an experienced development team that had no difficulties connecting to our RESTful API.
The Government of Singapore has stimulated the expansion of e-invoicing in the Asian market, which led to an adoption speed not seen in any other Peppol country before. ABSS, by offering InvoiceNow registration to all their customers, is a key part of this growth”, said Dolf Kars, Chief Executive Officer of Storecove
