Tradeshift Takes Over All The Invoicing For The UK’s Health Service

E-invoicing platform Tradeshift has landed a partnership with a company which processes transactions for the UK’s NHS, one of the biggest public sector bodies in the world. The NHS Shared Business Services will be using the Tradeshift platform instead of processing 30,000 paper invoices daily. Tradeshift has made a speciality of winning big corporate clients including DHL, the French government, Intuit and others. It means UK hospitals, GP surgeries and pharmacies will connect with hundreds and thousands of their suppliers using the Tradeshift platform, in theory reducing the time suppliers face for payment. The NHS Shared Business Services processes around $154 billion of NHS payments each year. Tradeshift’s competitors include San Francisco-based Taulia, Ariba, Basware, Coupa Software, OB10 and Dublin-based Senddr. Article source:...

deviantART Makes Its Case For Administering The .Art Domain

Online artists’ community deviantART is hoping to become responsible for the new .art web domains, and it recently sent a letter to ICANN (the organization responsible for managing top level domains) laying out its perspective on the stakes in the decision. The letter also presents deviantART’s case for why it deserves a “community designation” in the application process, saying: “We are on the cusp of an extraordinary opportunity with the simple use of a single word: a virtual place within the Internet for the arts and a virtual palace to the arts built site-by-site by millions of artists and art institutions each with an individualized artistic contribution gathered around the simple namespace of ‘.ART.’” The letter adds that if the domain is exploited commercially, “it will only occasionally and haphazardly designate the arts themselves. It will not be a welcomed location for the arts.” That may seem like an unusual argument coming from a for-profit business, but deviantART has created a new subsidiary called Dadotart (apparently that’s standard procedure when applying to manage a new top level domain), and it says it would create a policy board of “artists and art institutions” that would establish the standards for when the .art designation can be used. deviantART says ICANN is currently deciding whether it deserves the community designation, which would give it priority in the application process. The initial signs...
