ReadSoft automates invoice processing at Spanish insurance company

Santalucía is one of the major players in the insurance sector in Spain. They have now decided to automate their invoice handling in order to improve processes within their SAP® system. To achieve this, they have chosen ReadSoft DOCUMENTS for Invoices to process the 40,000 invoices they receive every year. With a ¤921 million turnover, Santalucía is the biggest insurance company in Spain within the areas Life, Family Care, and Home Insurance. Each year, Santalucía protects and insures more than 7 million people. For a company of Santalucía's size, it is crucial to be able to process supplier invoices in an efficient way. Consequently, they started to look for a solution which could automatically process their incoming invoices inside their SAP® system. "It was a long process. We were comparing solutions for several months to be sure that we got the strongest and most complete solution on the market. Finally, we chose ReadSoft's Invoices business solution for SAP®. It guaranteed a seamless integration with our ERP system together with high-quality professional services," says José Abellán Collado, Finance Area Manager at Santalucía. Until now, the Finance Department at Santalucía processed all their paper invoices manually. This was very time-consuming and prevented staff from doing more valuable tasks. From now on, this process will be quicker and more efficient. Paper invoices will be scanned and ReadSoft's INVOICES product will capture the data automatically. INVOICE COCKPIT will integrate the captured information into Santalucía's SAP system and WEB CYCLE will create a workflow for automatic approval of invoices. Thus, the manual tasks will be reduced to a minimum and the whole process will be carried out with better control and accuracy. "This is a very important project for us on the Spanish market. Santalucía is one of the most important companies in the insurance sector in Spain and their decision to choose us strengthens our position as the leading supplier of invoice automation software for SAP®," says Jan Andersson, President and CEO of ReadSoft.
