AUTOMATED AND SECURE ELECTRONIC INVOICING IS NOW A SIMPLE MATTER FOR EVERY BUSINESS!
Your invoices are no longer printed and they are dispatched electronically in a completely lawful and transparent manner
e-invoicing was enacted in Greece in 2006. Since then, all the more companies have begun to implement it, enjoying an overall reduction in operating and management costs, as well as minimizing the invoicing process response time. It essentially refers to the electronic exchange of documents between companies, without the need to ensure and exchange these in printed format.
The Paperless Connect service is the 1st service that was developed and implemented in the domestic market and used in the first e-invoicing project that was implemented in Greece. The Paperless Connect service is already used by more than 7,000 companies from every sector of the Greek Economy, ranking it as the largest e-invoicing community in Greece.

With continuous development and implementation being the key feature in all the more market sectors, the Paperless Connect service innovates by combining all the features of an e-invoicing platform with the nature of a social media website.

easy search of customers or suppliers, who already use electronic invoices,
easy and fast integration with customers or suppliers,
easy implementation of e-invoicing between partners through a friendly and reliable management environment that is secure and transparent,
Do-it-yourself logic, with the businesses having complete control over both the invoicing process and its integration with businesses.
Thus, the Paperless Connect service constitutes a pillar for the development and dissemination of electronic invoicing practices in the Greek market, while offering maximum security and optimum functionality in the exchange of electronic invoices.
