The educational arm of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the ICC Academy, in partnership with Mastercard, Basware and Xero has recently launched an E-Invoicing Solutions Certificate (ESC).
The specialised online programme aims to help businesses improve working capital efficiency and productivity by equipping them with the necessary knowledge and expertise required to implement electronic invoicing, also known as e-invoicing.
In today’s digital economy, where cross border trade is becoming increasingly prevalent, businesses are continuously looking to streamline the complexities of processing invoices, says a statement.
As a result, businesses have turned to e-invoicing, resulting in steady and unequivocal industry growth in recent years, allowing them cost savings and increased control, as well as fraud reduction and an improved customer experience, statement added. “The programme provides a collaborative mapping for businesses to understand what e-invoicing entails, its benefits and the steps required to ensure successful implementation,” said Daniel Kok, general manager of ICC Academy.
“Created with leading industry players, the programme leverages a deep understanding of the digital payments ecosystem to increase the efficiency of an organisation’s finance operations and spur on-time payments, while making it easier to transact with customers.”
The curriculum will be delivered via the ICC Academy’s innovative digital platform, which can be used on multiple devices.
The platform includes features such as an integrated and searchable course glossary, dynamic videos, a quiz review dashboard for assessment tracking, achievement badges, automatic bookmarking and pre-assessment games.
