After a global selection process the high-end apparel manufacturer has chosen
ReadSoft's SAP®-certified invoice automation solution to process over a million
electronic and paper invoices and other documents in its global shared service
center operations. The license, services and maintenance agreement signed is
worth an initial 1.1 MEUR and was signed in the fourth quarter of 2013.
The customer is consolidating its operations across many countries into a global
shared service center to handle both the volume of invoices processed and
multiple other business processes, with the ultimate aim of benefiting from the
elimination of manual processing and driving up automation rates in its P2P
processes. They are simultaneously moving to a single SAP instance for all
global operations. ReadSoft has also provided a platform to handle business
documents and information to deliver multi channel process automation.
The desire to centralize back-office operations while maintaining multiple
manufacturing locations was the key part of the project. ReadSoft was chosen as
the best solution to enable common financial processes both across multiple SAP
environments, while moving easily to a single instance and replacing a number of
other third party systems as part of the global standardization.
The chosen solutions, ReadSoft PROCESS DIRECTOR for SAP and the ReadSoft
platform for multi-channel input management are a modular way to handle not just
AP processes but a multitude of business process automation tasks such as
delivery notes, sales orders, or remittance advices and provide a platform for
automating many core business processes globally.
“Manufacturing is best done where resources and labor are easily and cost
efficiently sourced. However, we increasingly see back-office processes being
centralized to take advantage of reduced risk, increased control and
standardized processes. The key to doing this is to work with a partner who has
proven global capabilities. Starting with automated invoice processing, this
manufacturer can immediately maximize its existing investments in SAP, whilst
reducing invoice processing cycle times and improving control over the finance
function,” says Per Åkerberg, President and CEO of ReadSoft.
