Sending Electronic Documents in the Netherlands
As a customer in the Netherlands, you can send electronic documents as files attached to emails.
Due to additional regulation by the Netherlands PEPPOL Authority, Continia Document Output doesn't connect you directly to the PEPPOL eDelivery Network. In order to connect to the PEPPOL eDelivery Network, you must be assisted by a third-party integration provider. In the future, Continia plans to connect Dutch customers directly to the PEPPOL eDelivery Network.
Even though you're not connected directly, you can still send electronic documents as email attachments.
To promote the general adoption of PEPPOL, the entire central government and most of the decentral government in the Netherlands strongly advise to use the PEPPOL eDelivery Network. Document Output supports the PEPPOL BIS 3 format, which is the latest standard.
You can also export and send electronic documents to customers in other countries. Most widespread formats are supported, but not all. For a list of supported formats, see Supported Formats.
