Quick, efficient and easy to implement
Creaton processes incoming invoices with tangro software automatically at all locations using S/4HANA on the cloud, private edition. This allows for successful implementation precisely within the required time frame. “Everything worked as we had planned” says Matthias Meir, Head of Procurement & Photovoltaics at Creaton.
“Using tangro we have implemented a solution with S/4HANA on the cloud which runs smoothly and is fun.”
The software is being used across the entire group of companies by a total of 1,300 employees at every location in Germany, Poland, Hungary and Belgium. It is being used in English, German, Polish and Hungarian. And with different customising approaches depending on the circumstances in the country. This flexible adaptability has proved important because at Creaton purchasing has a different range of tasks in each individual country and operates differently. Hence there are country-specific recipient groups and specific workflows depending on the company code. “Clean processes and accurate allocation are important to us” says Matthias Meir.
“tangro is completely flexible. We were able to reproduce all of the workflows that we have and use on S/4 using tangro, customised differently in each case for the country-specific areas. It worked very well.“
tangro was used as a software for processing incoming business documents because the solution was already known and had proved itself at Creaton. Order processing had already been successfully automated using tangro years ago. For this reason, they wanted to back the same provider for invoice processing. Added to this was the certainty that S/4HANA projects can quite feasibly be implemented within a year using tangro.
Regarding the project Matthias Meir said: “It all worked but it was very demanding.” The colleagues from order processing thought that it would be a difficult task to implement automated invoice processing in different countries in six languages and with countless different workflows. According to Meir, “During the course of the project there were challenges and improvements had to be made throughout”. But in the end it worked. Automated invoice processing using S/4HANA went live on schedule at Christmas – with the required range of services and precisely within the required time frame.
