In many countries, large companies are now required by law to transmit tax information and invoices in electronic form to customers or to the relevant tax authorities. KSB therefore sought a central service provider to fulfill the e-invoicing requirements from the respective national companies.
Thanks to the long-standing partnership between KSB and SEEBURGER in the areas of B2B/EDI and SAP GTS (both on-premises), the decision to use additional SEEBURGER solutions was an easy one. KSB relies on SEEBURGER’s E-Invoicing Cloud Services here, as this environment is very dynamic and the services must always be kept up to date. At the start of implementation, KSB initially focused on Norway and Sweden.
With the certified SEEBURGER Peppol Access Point, invoice data is transmitted in UBL format (Universal Business Language) to the respective invoice recipients in Norway or Sweden. For this purpose, KSB provides the invoice data to SEEBURGER in IDoc format; SEEBURGER handles the conversion, communication and archiving (via partner Sovos TrustWeaver), see Figure 1.
The country solutions for Norway and Sweden have been successfully implemented and have been live since the end of 2020; further services such as U.K.-Tax and Finland in FINVOICE 3.0 format are planned for 2021. In addition, KSB will be able to generate and send invoices in ZUGFeRD format by the end of 2020. Here, KSB also relies on SEEBURGER as a solution provider.

SEEBURGER Cloud Services B2B/EDI & E-Invoicing Solutions at KSB
Due to the specific requirements of some countries, e-invoicing solutions must be able to handle Peppol and, if necessary, other formats. E-Invoicing solutions must also be able to connect easily and reliably to ERP systems with the invoice data in the respective country. SEEBURGER offers a scalable and future-proof e-invoicing solution for KSB and, as an experienced cloud partner, also knows and fulfills the different requirements in the countries.
With sales revenue of over € 2.3 billion, the KSB Group is one of the leading suppliers of pumps, valves and services. These are used in a wide range of applications from building services and industrial engineering to water transport, waste water treatment and power plant processes. Founded in Frankenthal (Germany) in 1871, the company is represented on all continents by its own sales companies, manufacturing facilities and service operations. KSB employs more than 15,000 people. With 190 service sites and over 3,500 service staff, KSB also provides inspection, maintenance and repair services worldwide.
KSB has recognized the increasing importance of Peppol.
The network will in all likelihood become the standard for national and international e-invoicing.
KSB has the following advantages by using the SEEBURGER Solution via Peppol:
The SEEBURGER E-Invoicing Solutions for our sites in Norway and Sweden master both the compliance requirements and the technical complexity. This central e-invoicing strategy forms a reliable basis for the use of further SEEBURGER E-Invoicing Solutions in this very dynamic environment.
