Digitized procurement process with full transparency

In the future, your P2P process can start automatically on receipt of the procurement request. The requester can enter the procurement request using a current web interface and forward it for review and approval. From there, the procurement request can go directly to purchasing via the ERP system to place an order. Thanks to the digital edoc solution, you have a transparent overview of the entire procurement process and know at all times where and what the status of each individual procurement request is. And each request or the associated workflow log can be easily assigned to the ERP order, the delivery note and/or the subsequent incoming invoices, which are automatically processed using the edoc invoice.

Fully automated order confirmation from any source

Our flexible input solutions help you to record all incoming order confirmations regardless of form and format and to transfer them to the next automated process. Your data and the digital document will be made available for viewing. This saves the user a huge amount of manual typing and, at the same time, greatly reduces the number of errors. This results in satisfied users who can concentrate on their core tasks and significantly improved process performance!

Vastly accelerated incoming invoice processing

Based on your ERP or financial accounting system, edoc offers ready-made software solutions that take over all the main tasks of the invoicing workflow. Entire work steps that are currently manual and prone to errors can be automated, thereby simplifying and accelerating the entire process. All incoming invoices, whether they arrive by post, e-mail, in ZUGFeRD format, as an XRechnung or via an invoice portal, are automatically and reliably recognized by high-performance document readers (OCR) and transferred to a digital process for further processing. This allows your accounting department to focus fully on the technical validation of the recognized data before forwarding the e-invoice to the verification and approval workflow. Sophisticated user interfaces ensure ease of use and deliver the right information to the right place at the right time. This saves time, creates transparency and speeds up your business-critical processes many times over!

Easy to use without high training costs

Different processes in a familiar environment! That is edoc’s overall aim. We consider the process as a whole, even if you choose to implement it step by step. That is why we always use the same software in all edoc applications and in the underlying edoc 365 business platform, which we then successively adapt to different business processes. This results in the user interfaces always having the same look and feel. After an initial introduction, users feel like they are back on home turf. It is so important to us that you feel right at home and comfortable with our solutions.
