“Environmental conservation is definitely important to us at Södra. The forest is at the heart of everything we do, and we are determined to lower our environmental impact in any way we can. Pagero’s solutions help us reach this goal,” says Bo-Lennart Andersson, CIO Södra Skogsägarna Ekonomisk Förening.

Södra started with Pagero e-invoicing in 2008 when the market was still in its early phases, and since then they have experienced a major development in the market.

“Our greatest challenge has been the market itself. It has taken some time for our suppliers to get started with e-invoicing. However, we have seen a significant shift during the past years, where most suppliers now are familiar with e-invoicing and fully aware of its advantages. Our suppliers often have several other customers that demand e-invoicing and the number of inbound e-invoices to Södra are constantly increasing,” says Bo-Lennart Andersson.

“The reason we chose Pagero was simply because they could deliver the best solution and the best service for our company’s needs. We immediately connected with their sales department who gave us an offer we could not refuse. Pagero also has a great support department.”

“Another major advantage for us with Pagero e-invoicing is that it makes invoice handling easier both for us and our suppliers. All inbound e-invoices are now gathered in one place and we can be certain that they are securely delivered to the right person. This saves us a lot of time and administrative handling and we now have increased control and a better overview of all inbound e-invoices.”

“With Pagero e-archive, we can easily trace invoices and we have access to all our invoices in one place, regardless of which business area they belong to. Pagero has simply made our invoicing handling much more efficient, which was exactly what we wanted. We always recommend Pagero to our suppliers that are in need of a service provider, and we are very satisfied with our solution,” says Bo-Lennart Andersson.
