E-invoicing in the oil, gas and chemical industry

Businesses in oil, gas, mining and other energy sectors strive to overcome challenges and reduce inefficiencies. Implementing automated billing and invoicing systems is a smart solution to cut costs and enhance productivity without disrupting operations. While electronic invoicing is not new to the industry, emerging technologies, security concerns and compliance requirements make automated billing a necessity.

Automated billing reduces resource expenditures, improves cash flow and enhances customer loyalty through faster invoice delivery, flexible payment options and automated reminders. It also enables business growth and innovation by facilitating experimentation with different pricing models, such as recurring, usage-based or hybrid. By providing consistent, accurate and professional invoices that align with customer preferences, automated billing enhances the overall customer experience.

Moreover, adopting automated billing systems contributes to environmental sustainability, which is particularly significant for industries facing accusations of unsustainable practices. By implementing e-invoicing, businesses can take a step forward in becoming more environmentally friendly.


PIDX (Petroleum Industry Data Exchange) and CIDX (Chemical Industry Data Exchange) are industry standards enabling electronic data exchange in the petroleum and chemical sectors.
