Automation of invoice processing

Company size: approx. 2, 300 employees (including subsidiaries)

Branch: healthcare

Country: Germany (Bochum)

Challenge: Since the standard function of inPuncto add-ons for SAP met almost all customer requirements, only a few software customizing was necessary.

Used modules for the realisation of the solution: biz²Archiver, biz²DocumentControl, biz²Scanner, biz²ScanServer

Concerning departments: accounting, purchase

Project description: In order to automate invoice processing, the University Hospital Bergmannsheil decided in 2007 to use SAP add-ons by inPuncto. Since the standard functions met almost all requirements, only a few software customizing had to be made. With the biz²ScanServer, the inbox processor for paper and e-mail invoices (e.g. PDF, TIFF) along with OCR recognition, the individual invoice fields are first read, compared with the customer / vendor entries in the SAP system and automatically assigned to the corresponding company code. Then the SAP workflow for invoice audit and invoice release (either via SAP or email) starts according to the authorizations and competencies of the involved parties defined in SAP. The archiving takes place with the archive software biz²Archiver, which is deeply integrated into SAP. The standard functions already fulfill the requirements for data security, so that audit-secure archiving of the documents is ensured.

Usage: Acceleration of the purchase-to-pay process and audit-secure archiving.

Company description: The Bergmannsheil University Hospital was founded in 1890 to take care of injured miners. Since there were no clinics with a focus on accident medicine at this time, Bergmannsheil is the first trauma clinic in the world.

Even today, Bergmannsheil is specializes in the field of accident and emergency medicine with maximum care and has been certified as a trans-regional trauma center. It has 23 different clinics and specialist departments as well as several intensive care units, polyclinics and special outpatient clinics. The University Hospital Bergmannsheil belongs to the corporate group BG Kliniken – Klinikverbund der gesetzlichen Unfallversicherung gGmbH.
