Manage invoices digitally with automated invoice processing

windream Invoice Management

Modern, digital invoice processing plays a central role in the everyday life of companies - regardless of their individual size. It enables incoming invoices to be processed with precisely defined business processes, with significantly faster throughput times and with automated and secure storage in the electronic archive - including fast retrieval and smooth data exchange with financial accounting. Digitization saves an enormous amount of time and nerves, because processing is now no longer carried out manually - as it was previously - but is largely automated in digital form via workflow.

Efficient invoice processing with digital workflows

Whereas in the past incoming invoices were received as paper invoices by mail, copied, stamped and forwarded as copies to the departments involved, today modern software-based IT solutions take over these processes.  With our software solutions for invoice processing, you handle the entire process completely digitally, from the incoming invoice to the posting. As a result, your company's employees can manage invoices much faster than before, as the traditional copying, forwarding, checking, signing off and posting on paper now takes place entirely on the basis of electronic processes.

Basis supporting the electronic processing of incoming invoices

The basis of digital incoming invoice processing is always that an incoming invoice is scanned immediately after it is received in the mailroom, if it was received as a paper invoice in your company. After scanning, the documents - invoices are just as much documents as any other form of business correspondence or written information - are only processed digitally. The same also applies, of course, if you already receive an incoming invoice in electronic form, for example as a PDF file by e-mail. Then, of course, the process of scanning is omitted.

Digital processes of invoice processing

Our solutions for digital invoice processing already provide preconfigured workflows which you and your company's employees can use immediately. The workflows are designed in such a way that they take into account all invoice processing processes which have to be run through from the moment of digitisation via scanner, including immediate audit-proof archiving in the windream archive.

This starts with the capture of an electronic invoice, through forwarding it to the relevant departments in your company, checking it and finally booking the invoices after the approval process. The system also allows backtracking within the process, so that your employees who process invoices can make queries to other departments involved in the processing procedure.

Support of standardized invoice platforms - ZUGFeRD and XRechnung

The invoice platforms ZUGFeRD and XRechnung are now established as standards for specific use cases in the market. In this context, ZUGFeRD represents a standardized format for the exchange of data from electronic invoices and is not limited to specific industries. XRechnung is the German modification of the eInvoicing for German public authorities. It was primarily designed for the exchange of invoices and data with public-sector customers in Germany and is - technically speaking - based on the XML data format.

The windream software solutions for digital invoice processing support both processing standards, ZUGFeRD and XRechnung.  For invoice processing according to the ZUGFeRD and XRechnung standards, we offer special versions of our software solutions for incoming invoice processing, each of which is tailored to the requirements and special features of ZUGFeRD and XRechnung.

For the users, the solution is very user-friendly - I no longer hear complaints from the specialist departments.

Audit-proof archiving of invoices

Hand in hand - document management systems (DMS) and invoice processing

Our DMS windream is completely integrated into Microsoft's Windows operating system. For many years already, we have been internationally known as a Microsoft partner. And our solutions for digital incoming invoice processing cooperate seamlessly with our document management system (DMS) resp. with our windream DMS software.

Why is this important? Quite simply, electronic incoming invoices not only have to be processed, but as business documents, they are an essential part of business communication. From a fiscal point of view, invoices have to be archived for a long period of time and have to be accessible even after a long time.

In concrete terms, this means: If the employees in your company save posted incoming invoices in the long-term archiving system of the windream DMS via an automated process, you will not lose any invoices later on. Special tools even allow you, for example, to index invoices to be archived automatically, so that you can retrieve them from the windream archiving system according to indexes like supplier names, invoice numbers and other criteria with the windream retrieval function, practically at the push of a button. Of course, this also applies to all other information or files and electronic documents stored in the archive. Of course, all documents in the windream archiving system are archived in an audit-proof manner at any time. And, of course, the windream archive fully complies with the requirements concerning the legal retention periods for business-relevant documents.
