Tungsten Network is the e-‐Invoicing provider of choice for the world’s leading pharmaceutical and healthcare companies. The latest organisations to select Tungsten Network include Fresenius Medical Care NA, a US-‐ based provider of kidney dialysis services and renal care products, and Dana-‐Farber Cancer Institute, a world leader in cancer treatment and research.
These new customers join the global e-‐Invoicing network alongside long-‐term practitioners, such as GlaxoSmithKline, and reinforce Tungsten’s strength in this industry. Seven of the twelve largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, ranked by revenue, transact with their suppliers through Tungsten Network.
“The pharmaceutical sector has been an early adopter of e-‐Invoicing with our first customer from the industry joining the network in 2004,” says Edmund Truell, Tungsten Group CEO. “It’s befitting that an industry focused on innovation is equally pioneering in its own business practices.”
