With only a couple of days to go before I pack my bags for Toronto, I am making time to prepare for this year’s Microsoft World Partner Conference (WPC). It’ll be my second time to attend and I’m now beginning to look forward to the razzamatazz of the event including the high powered keynote presentations each morning and the more detailed focused meetings.
Take a look at our recent appearance in the Sunday Business Post.

Previously we discussed how Celtrino Express offers the opportunity to retire your mailroom, thanks to the reduced administrative overheads provided by electronic invoicing. Replacing printed invoices with electronic equivalents saves time, effort, stationery and ultimately money too. So what can you replace your mailroom with?
According to the Billentis 2012 annual report into global e-invoicing adoption, the average outgoing paper-based sales invoice costs around €11.10 to process. This figure includes costs for printing, posting, chasing, processing and archiving the paperwork for every single invoice. Billentis then found that the average electronic invoice cost €4.70, a saving of 57% per invoice.
Celtrino earns distinction through demonstrated technology success and customer commitment.
DUBLIN, Ireland — June, 19th, 2012 Celtrino today announced it has achieved a Silver ISV competency, demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft silver competency, partners must successfully demonstrate expertise through rigorous exams, culminating in Microsoft certifications. And to ensure the highest quality of services, Microsoft requires customer references for successful implementation and customer satisfaction.
For a successful business, a healthy cash flow is essential. Delayed payments can prove catastrophic, so anything which can be done to prevent late payments becomes a business priority. Here are a few potential payment protractors and how Celtrino Express can help negate them:
Every paper invoice your business sends out needs to be entered manually into your customer’s accounts system. Unfortunately, any process which requires manual intervention introduces the chance for human error to creep in. A typing error can quickly become a payment dispute, which then delays payment. Delayed payments often create cashflow problems which then have a much larger impact on your business.
Ask anyone in accounts payable what takes longer to process than an invoice, and they will give a simple answer: a duplicate invoice. A standard invoice takes an unexpectedly long time to process from receipt in the post to despatch of payment, and it is this time factor that makes the entire procedure so costly. However if a second, identical invoice is received, the cost is further increased.

For decades futurists have been talking about the advent of the paperless office, and it now appears that the conditions for this dream have finally become a reality. Cloud-based services, high speed internet connectivity and exorbitant postage prices have all conspired to turn attention to the pain of running a mailroom.
Celtrino Express provides a document transaction platform for moving information between supply chain partners securely and with a full audit trail history to provide transparent reporting of processing progress. John Behan, Director at Celtrino, explains more about the potential applications of Celtrino Express.
“Transferring documents electronically between businesses has always been a trade-off between simplicity with error, such as when using email, or extremely complex to prevent these errors, such as traditional EDI. Neither of these approaches is ideal as online businesses move towards a more social model,” said Behan, “which is why Celtrino Express has been specifically designed to be simple and intuitive to use whilst providing a secure mechanism for transparent audit trail creation and workload reduction.”
