IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Italian E-invoicing: Time reporting between Inflight submitted date and reached SDI date

By law in Italy all EDI invoices need to be supplied to SDI within 12 calendar days. In order to find out if this is the case it is required to have data from Inflight to query. Currently the Event data when it is requesting SDI to approve or deny the invoice (this is the moment when the invoice is officially at SDI) is currently not possible to retrieve and be able to be compared to the moment the invoice was submitted. It is Toyota Material Handing Europe's opinion that it is required to be able to show that x% of all our invoices are being supplied to SDI with the legally binding 12 calendar days. Also this data can then be used to find root causes for the ones that are NOT processed to SDI within that time limit.

What is your industry? Industrial Products
How will this idea be used?

We will use the requested data to:

  • Formally be able to report to auditors that our invoices are sent to SDI within the 12 day window

  • Use the invoices that are identified as sent after the 12 day window to find root causes for why this happens and improve together with IBM the quality of the service.
