Nexive launches digital-physical communications service for Italian SMEs
Nexive, PostNL’s postal business in Italy, has launched a new digital-physical communications service for small businesses. The new Multi Formula Self service offers to help SMEs comply with new national regulations requiring electronic invoicing.
Nexive, rebranded last year from TNT Post Italy, said the new offering also helps it respond to the evolution of the postal market, where digital delivery services are forecast to grow by nearly 50% up to 2019.
The company said the simplicity of the Multi Formula Self service will allow even the smallest businesses to improve the management of their communications, without the need to pay for software licenses or the need to manage different suppliers.
Through a single point of contact, businesses can upload files, process them and deliver them as required — either in physical letter form, or as email or electronic invoices.
The system also includes digital archiving and storage.
The new service comes as a development of Nexive’s existing Multi Formula service for companies with larger IT systems.
Nexive said it was meeting the needs of 2m companies facing new requirements for electronic invoicing in Italy. Since the end of March, around 7.7m electronic invoices have been sent, with prospects that this could grow to 50m each year. So far, only around 300,000 companies are sending invoices electronically, the firm added.
Benedetto Mangiante, the director of marketing and innovation at Nexive, said the new service was another step forward for his firm’s strategy to support Italian businesses regardless of their size or type.
“In a state of constant evolution, traditional postal services must embrace digital innovation with a multi-channel approach: the integration of the digital and postal sectors represent a great opportunity for the economy,” he said.
“With our new offering we are putting our duel expertise at the disposal of Italian SMEs, which represent about 99% of the national economy, to contribute to the competitiveness of the nation.”
