Invoice processing 4.0 on S/4HANA
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. Everything comes together.
“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 on the decision to use tangro software. “Real-life evidence from a reference customer already using tangro on S/4HANA convinced us of our choice.” 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 receives around 45,000 invoices a year, half by e-mail and half by post. Around 80 percent of the invoices received by WEIG are recognised fully automatically with tangro IM. The system therefore meets one of the most important requirements of the specialist departments, as Alexander Paucar-Bahrs from the Group Service Purchasing explains: “It was important to us that the software used for processing incoming invoices provided the best recognition levels possible and if necessary could post documents fully automatically in the background.”
