callas software, a leading provider of automated PDF quality assurance and archiving solutions, released an update for its pdfaPilot product line today. Aside from numerous smaller improvements, the standout feature for pdfaPilot 9.1 is its support for version 2.1 of the ZUGFeRD data model.
The Forum for Electronic Invoicing Germany (FeRD) and the French National Forum for Electronic Invoicing and Public Digital Procurement (FNFE-MPE) recently published a joint e-invoicing standard in the form of ZUGFeRD 2.1 and Factur-X 1.0.
With pdfaPilot 9.1, users can create, validate and process ZUGFeRD-compliant files that now also conform to version 2.1 of the e-invoicing data format. Since ZUGFeRD 2.1 is fully compatible with the French invoicing standard Factur-X 1.0, it will now be significantly easier for French and German providers to exchange e-invoices with one another.
pdfaPilot 9.1 is available as an interactive desktop application, a hot-folder-based server application and an integration-ready command-line application and programming library.
