Accelerating invoice processing with flexible digital workflows

Leading Swiss manufacturer of increases productivity by integrating DocuWare Cloud with Microsoft Dynamics.

Hammer Group is a leading producer of high-quality metal solutions for a wide range of industrial applications.

Previously, both the head office and six subsidiaries at Hammer Group were heavily reliant on paper-based working. For example, the group stored multiple copies of paper invoices in a central archive as well as at smaller archives across the six subsidiaries. Although this approach ensured that local teams had quick, easy access to financial documents, it also created inefficiencies and heavier workloads.

In collaboration with Ambit Group and Ricoh, Hammer Group transformed its invoice processing and reimagined established workflows with a digital cloud mindset. In the first phase of the new process, the group uses DocuWare Cloud to capture and archive electronic and paper invoices on arrival. Then, by combining DocuWare Cloud with an intelligent invoice recognition add-on, Hammer Group automatically extracts details such as item lines, before matching invoices with purchase orders stored in Microsoft Dynamics AX.

"When we found DocuWare Cloud, we quickly realised it was the best fit for us. It’s a future-proof cloud service that is easy to use, very flexible and integrates well with our ERP system."
