Automated processing of incoming invoices
In the finance department of the University Hospital Cologne, greater efficiency has been achieved through the use of tangro to automatically process invoices. The tangro solutions IM (Invoice Management) and BWF (Business Workflow) were recommended by colleagues at the University Hospitals Munich and Erlangen; additionally, the staff at Cologne were able to see with their own eyes the quality of the solution during a research visit to Munich. Particularly convincing were the user-friendly system and the practice-relevant workflows as well as the quick implementation and its excellent price/performance ratio.
Approximately 155,000 invoices come into University Hospital Cologne each year. The incoming documents are scanned in the central accounting office and are then ready for processing in the tangro receipt journal. If an invoice meets the 'standard', it can be posted immediately so that no more than one or two days pass before payment. "We can process so many more invoices today than previously. The document flow has been so improved with tangro that we can reliably meet significantly more discount periods," says Werner Buser, Director of Accounting, University Hospital Cologne.
