Seeing this video got me thinking. Wouldn’t it be great if every sales invoice that ever got issued had one of these Tags printed on it?
The tag could contain the accounting information from the invoice in electronic form. The recipient of the invoice then simply scans the Tag to import the invoice into their own accounting system.
Obviously, it’s better all round if invoices get passed between customer and supplier accounting systems via email or XML data feed but, until that happens, a Tagged paper invoice would do the job nicely.
