Our Service

M&A strategy

It is estimated that there are currently already more than 700 providers of electronic invoicing services - in Europe alone. Due to the increasing obligation to send and receive electronic invoices in many countries, these numbers are growing almost daily. With an estimated market volume of several billion euros, e-invoicing is one of the most attractive and dynamic markets of all.

This means that market consolidation is inevitable. If you are looking to buy or sell a company in the e-invoicing sector, we are your ideal partner. With its comprehensive know-how of globally active service providers, billentis is predestined to accompany this process. billentis supports both service providers and private equity or venture capital companies in the selection of suitable providers through to successful post-merger integration.

Consulting services

The increasing complexity of the e-invoicing market is making it increasingly difficult for market participants to define the right solutions and positioning for themselves. Which technologies are relevant? Which model can I use to increase VAT revenue? How do I adapt my EDI solution to future requirements? Which provider do I choose?

Our extensive consulting expertise spans several areas, including strategy consulting for service providers, consulting on e-invoicing models for governments and vendor selection for businesses. In the increasingly complex market environment for electronic invoicing and tax compliance, we lay the fundation for our clients to make future-oriented and practical decisions.

During the same period, Marcus Laube has built up and managed various globally active service providers and is still active today as Co-Chair of the global e-Invoicing association GENA.
