Particular Challenges for the new Workflow Management

The emerging company was looking for a solution for the optimization of the processes involved in the processing of invoices and credit notes. It was necessary to solve a number of challenges:

  • 1400 – 1600 invoices and credit notes per month
  • Different approver per department and supplier
  • Long lead times for the incoming invoices from receipt to approval
  • Delay caused by the absence of the approving people
  • Continuous process from the preparation of invoices to archiving missing
  • Information missing – which invoice is where, why and for how long



With the introduction of GEDYS IntraWare Workflow Management processes were optimized measurable and sustainable:

  • Significantly increased transparency in the approval process
  • Reduction of cycle time by up to 30% (depending on the department)
  • Semi-automatic assignment of approvers based on corresponding master data from the ERP system
  • Connection to easyScan – thereby greatly simplifying the detection of bills
  • Provision of the approval protocol and key data for later archiving of the invoice
