With the Esker AR solution, paper invoices are produced and delivered to the postal service within 24 hours of being generated, thanks to a worldwide network of Esker mail production facilities.

The Esker AR solution validates e-invoices from billing applications, applies appropriate signatures and time-stamps, and verifies compliance with tax regulations in over 40 countries.

Solidifying its position as a key player in the electronic invoicing space, Esker is featured in the recently released 2011 Billentis report titled "E-invoicing / E-billing in Europe and abroad – from evolution to revolution."* Esker’s competence in tailoring its solutions for specific needs is also demonstrated by the ability to deliver electronic invoices in the "FACTURAE" format – a mandatory e-invoice format required by the Spanish government.
