SERES delivers faster and safer invoicing on Oracle Blockchain Platform

Summary

SERES Achieves Increased Trust, Traceability, and Transparency with Oracle Blockchain Platform to Strengthen its Core Business.

SERES is a company that specializes in solutions for the secure exchange of electronic documents. By enabling decentralized peer-to-peer business interactions and transactions, blockchain posed an interesting dilemma as one of its most groundbreaking benefits is its promise to eliminate the need for trusted third parties.

Rather than ignore this development, SERES decided to confront the challenge head on by integrating blockchain technologies into its services portfolio, leveraging Oracle Blockchain Platform as the foundation for innovative electronic invoicing services.

Business challenges

  • Improve the security of digital transactions while simultaneously increasing the number of business exchanges
  • Establish effective channels between franchisors and franchisees that allow the interchange of any type of electronic document
  • Increase business velocity and reduce the time delays associated with manual, paper-based processes

Oracle Blockchain Platform provided us with a great business opportunity—it enables us to provide transactional services with guarantees to our clients, notifying them of every stage of the process with complete security and transparency—which is a very attractive prospect for businesses requiring electronic invoicing services.
