No, you do not need an ERP (or accounting) system to use PDF-2-FLOW. However, it is important that you are able to produce "born digital" invoices that meet certain functional and legal requirements as outlined here.
Even if you do not have an ERP system, it is possible to create PDF invoices that are born digital. For example, creating your invoices in a word processor (e.g. Writer or Microsoft Word) or spreadsheet program (e.g. Calc or Microsoft Excel) and saving the file as a PDF file ("print to PDF") qualifies as digital born. Always keep the same layout for multiple invoices to avoid delays.
However, if you have an ERP or other financial system and that system is capable of exporting your PDF invoices to a designated folder on a local device, then it is possible to fully automate the outgoing billing process with an alternative version of PDF -2-FLOW. This requires you to download and install our FLOW Secure Connector for PDF. If you would like to know more about this option, please contact us.
