Centrica turns on e-Invoicing with OB10 to provide efficiency and cost savings on a global scale

London, 14th June 2011 - OB10, the leading global e-Invoicing network, today announced that Centrica, the international integrated energy company and one of the UK's largest gas and electricity providers, will be adopting OB10's e-Invoicing solution, joining other leading utilities providers including Severn Trent and Scottish Water.

OB10's end-to-end e-Invoicing solution will aim to streamline Centrica's accounts payable function; by automating the ability to accept supplier invoices in a wide variety of international invoice data formats. Adopting this approach may help Centrica to maintain its position as a leading supporter of the Prompt Payment Code.

"We are delighted that Centrica has made the decision to join our e-Invoicing network", said Luke McKeever, CEO of OB10. "Our continued growth in the provision of e-Invoicing services to utilities companies has seen a dramatic increase in the number of associated suppliers who are using our platform to send invoices to their customers in this sector."
