You’re in good company

PDF Invoicing is CloudTrade’s flagship service which is trusted by over 700 businesses worldwide and processes millions of documents per year.

  • Data that can be processed automatically without further human intervention
  • Touchless for both you and your suppliers
  • Applicable to invoices and other financial documents, including supplier statements

How does
PDF Invoicing work?

1. The supplier sends the document(s) to a receiver-specific email address

The service automatically processes multiple attachments to an email, multiple invoices within any of the attachments, and the body of the email, if required.

2. PDF Invoicing detaches the document(s) from the email

Mapping is carried out on all required data from the attachments into the required output structure.

3. Supplier-specific logic and business validation rules are applied to the data

Any additional data items, required for automatic ingest and processing by the receiving system, are derived.

4. Validated files are uploaded into your finance application

If the document data meets your legal and business-specific criteria, the validated electronic file is uploaded into your finance application for touchless onward processing.

5. You receive 100% validated data into your organisation, every time

If the invoice data does not satisfy your business rules, then depending on your requirements, the original document can either be automatically rejected back to the supplier or routed to an operator to review.
