Recently I have been hearing more and more about PEPPOL (Pan-European Public Procurement Online project) from my colleagues in Europe. PEPPOL is an EU initiated and funded e-Procurement project to enable seamless cross-border e-Procurement, connecting communities through standards-based solutions. Specifically, it is designed to enable companies in any EU country to respond to any tender across the EU. I admit that I am just starting to learn about PEPPOL, so I wanted to introduce my colleague, Ger Clancy, who has written a series of blogs on PEPPOL and is moderating a discussion on the topic at Linkedin. Check out these insightful articles below.

This article discusses the recent announcement of the UK National Health Service plans to save approx £1.5 billion in the financial year 2015-2016 through the implementation of the EU PEPPOL standard for interoperability in electronic trade, must surely indicate a tipping point for the widescale adoption of PEPPOL in Europe and beyond.
