My history with EIPP (e-invoicing)

My history with EIPP:

  1. In September 2004, I joined an EIPP Tech Startup called Morahan International from London as an investor employee, investing £50k and building the Utilities Sector.
  2. The company went into voluntary liquidation shortly. Three new companies emerged out of this. One was mine called ebdex. Focused initially on building the ebdex Data Exchange Hub for invoices.
  3. We managed to get the V1 out, but V2 killed V1 – bad outsourcing deal and I had to shut down the company (FinTech) by end of 2006. Started building Manchester’s tech ecosystem from this point onwards. I founded my second tech company with the CEO of Accountis, which I highly admired. I was a big fan of BASDA and they became our client. Coda refused to play ball so we struggled to integrate.
  4. By then, I was the No 1 read blogger on the topic of EIPP and e-invoicing and had a large following. Unfortunately, killed the blog a few years after as my interests changed. Remnants still exist at and
  5. In 2007, I spent a few months with #Causeway doing a brain dump. Had fun with Tim Cole and Tradex.
  6. Got invited to SAP Sapphire in Vienna to blog about EIPP with few other bloggers from around the world.
