Pagero, crossinx and Cegedim forms a strategic alliance covering the Nordic region, DACH and France. The companies will cooperate on a strategic level working together to facilitate e-invoicing. Members of GENA represent the leading e-invoicing experts in their domestic region.
With traditional interoperability, operators connect their respective networks to each other enabling extended reach for their customers. However, the GENA Alliance not only connect their networks to each other, they also cooperate on a business level. With one connection to any GENA member, companies can benefit from their combined reach. Furthermore, they have access to local business praxis, language skills, local support and on-boarding services – in all the members’ regions. Today the GENA Alliance members offer a reach exceeding 750 000 companies (suppliers and buyers).
GENA is a new form of alliance that is similar to the cooperation we see in in the airline industry, e.g. Star Alliance, where airlines help each other to increase benefits for their customers.
“We are pleased to be a founding member of the GENA Network together with such experienced and well-established service providers like Cegedim and crossinx and thereby provide high quality solutions in the large economies of France, Germany and the combined markets of the Nordics”, says Fredrik Rosenqvist, VP Partners & Alliances, Pagero.

We believe this innovative association of our geographical specialties will bring great value to our clients by facilitating their e-invoicing rollout at European level”, says Patrick Schuller, sales and Marketing Director, Cegedim.
