Not yet! Alex currently delivers the equivalent of a printed document. This enables businesses to send documents to private individuals as well as businesses.

Businesses have more complex requirements. For example a business receiving a purchase order from a customer would need to enter it into their accounting system as a customer order. This may require the translation of product codes or the conversion of descriptions into product or service codes and so on. The recipient’s accounting software must support this kind of functionality. Planned future extensions of the Alex service will facilitate the automation of this kind of business transaction.
