ePrior is a pilot project to setup an e-Invoicing and e-Ordering infrastructure between the DIGIT and a number of suppliers. The acronym of this infrastructure is e-PRIOR: electronic PRocurement, Invoicing and ORdering; the aim is to give full priority to electronic documents.
An open-source version – open_PRIOR – is currently being developed. This open-source version will be shared with EU Member States to set up their own e-Invoicing infrastructure. One important element of Open e-PRIOR is a connector with PEPPOL.
Open e-PRIOR is the first e-Procurement implementation which enables the exchange of electronic business documents using the data models of CEN/ISSS WS/BII
