Incoming invoices on S/4Hana
Taking SAP S/4Hana as basis the WEIG Group works to conquer digital transformation. tangro is your ideal partner for automated invoice processing. “We wanted to work with someone that we knew supported S/4Hana. And tangro was the right partner,” says Tim Hoffmann from Group Service IT.
The tangro solution for invoice processing is SAP-embedded, so can be integrated directly in the SAP ERP system without any interfaces - and in S/4Hana too. “From an IT standpoint, the fact that tangro is SAP-embedded simplifies things a great deal. A slight adjustment was needed at just one point then the basic software could run on our S/4Hana system. Everything happened quickly and smoothly,” says Tim Hoffmann enthusiastically. “We felt like the advice we were being given was good. tangro has extensive experience in processing incoming documents for SAP and knows what is worth doing and what isn’t."
WEIG is an industrial service provider working along the cardboard value-added chain. The WEIG Group specialises in gypsum cardboard, has in-house expertise in packaging cardboard and cardboard packaging and provides sustainable solutions for the disposal of secondary raw materials. It took just eight weeks to get tangro IM up and running at WEIG.
WEIG receives around 45,000 invoices a year. Around 80 percent of the invoices received by WEIG are recognised fully automatically with tangro IM. This process has sped up invoice processing so much that after just a few months of productive use an increase in the number of discount payments can already be seen. “Thanks to real-time processing, we are now able to post invoices faster and make use of discount much more often,” says Alexander Paucar-Bahrs from the Group Service Purchasing.
The internal IT department is able to confirm how workflows have been optimised. “There will be less maintenance work required in the long term. There are no longer any interfaces where we have to provide IT support and continually adapt when the supplier changes something, for example. We have one single, central invoice processing system, which has a user structure similar to SAP. So we can assume authorisation roles,” adds Tim Hoffmann. But most importantly tangro has made WEIG ready for the future: "Because invoice verification with tangro runs on S/4Hana, we are using the fastest system available and are prepared for whatever the future has in store."
