e-invoicing transactions taking off

The shape of this curve reminds me of the development of e-banking transactions back in the 80s - first you sign up the customers - then you have to wait, and then wait, and wait - and then it takes off like a rocket - viral marketing works this way ´- and in the e-invoicing case naturally the deadlines for paper or e-mail set up by many large invoice receivers and transparent charging for having to send paper.

As a result of these action we can already register that Tieto in Finland has passed a penetration of 70%, City of Helsinki around 65% and City or Tampere around 55%. Soon it will be close to 100%.  Municipalities are important as they have responsibility both for tax payers money and furthering of the networked  e-society in important dimensions .

Nice chart, although would be even more informative with a Y-scale.. As we all know, statistics show what we want them to present.
