Support for Swiss QR-bills in Next®

In order to modernize and streamline payment transactions, Switzerland has introduced the concept of QR-bills to replace the traditional payment slips.

Next® extracts data for the processing of invoices in numerous ways - depending on the format of the invoices you receive. Now we add support for the Swiss QR-bill, that allows us to extract detailed invoice information with almost 100% accuracy. 

Launch of the QR-bill in Switzerland

A QR code means almost 100% accuracy and efficiency

You can recognize the QR-bill by the Swiss QR Code, which contains all the information we need to automatically process your invoices in Next®.

Gradual replacement of the payment slips

The QR-bill will replace the current payment slips gradually, meanings that companies can, make payments using either the traditional payment slips or the new QR-bill. The Swiss QR Code in the middle of the payment section contains all the information that is also written in text on the invoice. 

Future enhancements

We will utilize the many features in our new barcode library to provide better and more accurate extraction of data in other applications as well.

For the techies  

We are replacing the barcode library in our data extraction module and we now use our standard ASPOSE library. The quality and general performance of this library is considerably better.  

Commercial terms and conditions

This new feature is available at no additional cost, to users with an active service plan. Any consultancy assistance will be invoiced.


Despite our best efforts, we may be forced to change both content and expected delivery of future product updates without notice.
