Since May 2005 FIS GmbH has been an active sales partner of formcraft GmbH for the document scanning products FCI formcraft invoice® and FormsRec®. The FIS/edc software (developed by FIS) for automatic invoice and document processing within SAP offers - together with formcrafts document scanning products - a continuous and complete solution for processing inbound digital documents depending on data and paper. Moreover, formcraft and FIS have agreed upon a closer cooperation for the sales and distribution as well as the implementation of FIS/edc. This product is to be used all over the world via the Key Account and partner distributions.
FIS operates its own FIS/edc competence team for document scanning/processing solutions within SAP comprising approx. 25-30 employees. Since the beginning of the partnership with formcraft FIS has acquired more than 40 new customers who all use the products FCI formcraft invoice® and FormsRec®. Among them well-known companies such as Ferrero, 1 &1 Internet AG, Loewe Opta, Tyco Electronics, Nestlé, Linde, Vileda, Karstadt, Bechtle, Trumpf, Bayer Schering Pharma, T-Mobile and many others.
The FIS/edc (electronic document center) solution (developed by FIS) is an application completely integrated in SAP and modularly structured by means of which scanned documents such as incoming invoices and EDI messages can be processed automatically. The complete solution uses the well-established identification systems of formcraft and disposes of functions for further processings within SAP. The application is free of modifications and certified by SAP as such so that in case of a release upgrade of the ERP application no adjustment will be necessary. The provider keeps an online support system (FIS/oss) being available around the clock (24x7). FIS/edc makes use of state-of-the art technologies and can be executed under all SAP versions from 4.6c onwards.
Identification is made via the efficient Input Management solution FCI formcraft invoice® by formcraft scanning both forms and free form layouts on a high quality level. Moreover, FIS/edc supports the entire posting process of incoming invoices and – for instance - allows for automatic posting up to item level, matching despite deviations within given limits or conversion of identified data into SAP Idocs via the FIS/xee module. A highlight is the tripartite monitor offering to the user all kinds of information on his screen at a glance: Invoice image, posting mask including interpreted data as well as reference data of purchase order and/or delivery note. Moreover, further document types can be processed via FIS/edc in connection with SAP. The application can be enhanced by any kind of monitor thus being able to process any kinds of documents and digital data such as order confirmations, delivery notes, payment advices, dunning notices and any other correspondence and to make these documents available to the users via Web procedures or SAP technology.
