The use of Coupa is not only to enable an efficient ordering process, but also to ensure that your invoices are processed and paid quickly. With Coupa you can transmit your invoices electronically to Sixt. Your data is transmitted within a few seconds and supports automatic invoice processing. There are three options available for the transfer of your invoice, which we would like to explain to you in more detail below. There are no additional costs for you in any of the three options.
No registration is necessary for sending invoices via SAN. You simply start the process with the order you receive from us by e-mail. The order notification is an action-entitled notification – this enables you to react directly to an order request. You can send a comment back to the customer or generate an invoice directly from the received order. To do this, click on the “Create invoice” button, which you will find at the beginning and the end of the order. You will then be redirected to a Coupa portal where you can view the order and create an invoice without prior registration. We recommend this option if you only rarely send invoices to Sixt.
CSP (Coupa Supplier Portal)
The CSP platform provides you with an extensive range of options for the processing of transactions. We will gladly send you an invitation for the registration. This way your company and Sixt are directly connected. After registration, you can easily send your invoice via the Coupa Supplier Portal by generating an invoice from the corresponding purchase order or contract. In the portal, you can also view and track the processing status of your invoice at any time. Credit notes can also be created in this way. We recommend this connection option if you send us more than one invoice per week.
cXML (direct connection)
CXML (commerce eXtensible Markup Language) is a protocol for exchanging data and provides a direct link between your and our ERP system. To set up electronic invoice transmission in Coupa, cXML invoices must be activated in the supplier master record and 5 parameters (supplier domain and identity, recipient domain and identity and password) must be stored. Coupa is then ready to receive invoices from the supplier as electronic data records. Since the connection via cXML requires a more extensive integration effort, we recommend this option if you send more than 100 invoices per week to Sixt.
