French IT-retailer changes to electronic invoice processing from ReadSoft

ReadSoft has received an order from a large French IT-retailer. The company, who has been using another Document Automation software for some time, now changes to ReadSoft DOCUMENTS for Invoices primarily because of its proven integration to SAP. The solution from ReadSoft, which also includes an electronic workflow and archive, will be installed at a newly established shared service center in France. The order is worth approximately EUR 355,000.

This new French customer, who wishes to be anonymous at this time, is a retail company that sells IT products and domestic appliances to IT-stores all around France. The company operates primarily on the French market and generated sales of approximately EUR 2.4 billion in 2005.

After making an overall analysis, the company selected ReadSoft as their vendor of choice for two main reasons. The software’s proven stability and ReadSoft's effective integration into SAP. Being a company at the forefront of technology, this IT-retailer is constantly looking for performance enhancements and process improvements. ReadSoft's solution offers significant business value, allowing the company to make better use of its employees, ensure higher-quality information and improve security.

“Shared service centres generate huge savings when using Document Automation technologies like ReadSoft’s,” says Jan Andersson, CEO at ReadSoft. “We are very happy that this customer has switched to a ReadSoft system and hope to make them even more efficient.”
