E-invoicing: Ready for Prime Time


Of the 30 billion invoices sent and received in Europe every year, more than 90% are in paper format. This is not only labour intensive and error prone, but comes at both a financial and environmental cost. Such manual operations slow invoice reconciliation, leading to poor relationships with suppliers and buyers and, potentially, poor cash flow management. This paper discusses the challenges posed by inefficient manual invoice processes, the need for e-invoicing, and how an organization can focus on its core business by handing over invoice processing to a managed service provider.

PacketController Net Neutrality QoS


This white paper describes PacketController’s net neutrality methodology. Through PacketController's automatic TCP rate-limiting technology, it does not matter what the traffic is, or if it's encrypted, as the algorithms at this level fundamentally work per subscriber. Should there be any unidentified traffic (and there will always be unidentified trafic), PacketController's unique fair allocation of bandwidth automatically ensures fairness across the network and ensures no one subscriber gets an unfair share of bandwidth.The paper also describes the typical process to implement PacketController in ISP environment to manage bandwidth investment and increase network performance.
