GXS Head of e-Invoicing Named Chair of UK National Forum

Nigel Taylor to Lead Initiative of Industry Associations, Public Sector Bodies and Solution Providers to Further the Widespread Adoption of Electronic Invoicing in the UK

February 18, 2013 — GXSTM, a leading provider of B2B integration services, today announced its Head of e-Invoicing, Nigel Taylor, has been appointed as the Chair of the UK National e-Invoicing Forum (UKNeF). Taylor, who formerly served as Vice Chair, has been elected by industry peers following the retirement of the outgoing Chair, IBM’s Chris Godwin.

Established in 2010, the UK National e-Invoicing Forum is a self-funded initiative of industry associations, public sector bodies and solution providers that promotes e-Invoicing in the UK public and private sectors. UKNeF ensures expert UK input to the EU Commission Multi-Stakeholder Forum on e-Invoicing, so emerging EU policy and its implementation supports UK public and private interests.

“Identifying the importance of e-Invoicing is a priority for me personally and in my work. From process efficiencies, cost savings, working capital optimisation, through to improved governance and supplier relationships, e-Invoicing holds both opportunities and challenges for government and business,” said Nigel Taylor. “I am committed to my new position with UKNeF and its work to further increase the widespread adoption of e-Invoicing throughout the UK.”

Taylor currently heads GXS’s efforts in the e-Invoicing market.
