Deutsche See GmbH is the market leader in fish and seafood in Germany. With around 1,800 employees at 20 locations, the Bremerhaven-based company supplies around 35,000 customers from the food retail, catering and food service sectors. The range includes around 3,500 items.
The central accounting of the company in the fish industry completes the invoice processing for over 23 subsidiaries and two production sites. 80,000 tonnes of live, fresh and frozen goods are realized annually. The task consisted of centrally recording 60,000 incoming invoices per year and 10,000 delivery notes per day with rule-compliant storage (GoBD) and integration into the SAP ERP system for secure and efficient invoice verification. Around 270 employees are involved in the invoice verification workflow. The invoice verification of 9,500 suppliers is transferred to the screen by the creditor accountant.
Invoice processing has been introduced with the dataglobal CS. If they are available in paper form, the incoming invoices are scanned or further processed as a PDF file. The system recognizes the information relevant for accounting in every document after scanning. Account-relevant information includes the invoice and order number, creditor, value added tax rate and amount and the payment conditions. A data comparison and heck against the creditor master data and the order system are carried out automatically. If the check is passed without complaint, the item is booked automatically.
Fast, automatic and secure digital invoice processing. What often used to take several weeks can now be completed within days. Significant cost reduction as well as an increase in process reliability and efficiency. Transparency in day-to-day business processes can aid in making better decisions and improve competitiveness.
