MIDDLETON, Wis. — December 12, 2017 — Esker, a worldwide leader in document process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, today announced its joint effort with Getlink, formerly the Eurotunnel Group, a major player in European transport, to automate its supplier invoices. Thanks to Esker’s cloud-based Accounts Payable solution, the 15 companies that make up the group now have a single solution that’s integrated with their SAP® system and compatible with French-British languages, currencies and legislation. As a result, Getlink now processes supplier invoices twice as fast, has improved process visibility and traceability, and reduced the number of reminders and outstanding invoices.
Getlink’s eight-person accounting team, distributed between France and the United Kingdom, manually processes 60,000 annual invoices (e.g., services, inventory, overhead, taxes, etc.). Due to multiple companies, languages, currencies and intra-community value-added tax (VAT) management, the company’s accounts payable (AP) process is very complex.
“We were primarily looking for one AP solution for all our subsidiaries that seamlessly integrated with SAP,” said Audrey Willot, accounting director at Getlink. “Esker’s cloud-based solution offers us more flexibility and is compatible with multiple languages and international legislation. Other key criteria in our decision-making process included purchase order (PO) and non-PO invoice processing, mobility, and the assurance that an effective and reliable audit trail was in place.”
