Limitless accounting efficiency
Streamlined processes and more transparency across multiple areas: ContiTech has introduced tangro software to automate accounting processes. The consistent automation of processes for entering, checking and booking incoming invoices on to SAP has reduced document turnaround time while significantly improving transparency and traceability. "tangro automatically recognises invoice content so that data no longer needs to be input manually but only briefly checked," Frank Sündermann explains, Director of IT Business Systems at ContiTech. "At the same time, we have an overview of all invoices. This means that we know where the documents are for their approval and we can follow the entire process."
A particular advantage is the fact that tangro is SAP-embedded and therefore offers complete consistency with the SAP system - without interface problems. This integrated approach is advantageous for both IT and the user: "technologically speaking, tangro embedded itself completely into our system environment. We didn't have to exchange any data with upstream systems, which we would have had to do with other systems," Sündermann says. "From an IT perspective, tangro stands out because of its incredibly simple handling. We have a good overview over what is needed from a technological point of view and we can maintain and manage tangro with minimum effort." The complete embedding in SAP is also advantageous from a user perspective. "Because tangro is SAP-embedded," Sündermann continues, "during invoice processing, users experience the same interfaces as those they had already become used to in their day-to-day work with the SAP system.
The SAP GUI makes the tangro solution, from a user point of view, particularly easily manageable." It is with this convincing concept that tangro has established itself at ContiTech as the software for incoming invoice processing. It is already being used at 20 locations in Europe and Central America, with others soon to follow. "With tangro, we have been able to successfully achieve the introduction of a product with a uniform, standardised solution approach across many business areas and all make use of a joint infrastructure" Sündermann states.
