In the first quarter of 2022, the family business from Brabant made the choice to start processing purchase invoices via TriFact365. A few months after the successful implementation we spoke with Financial Controller Maikel Smits
Maikel: “On 1 January 2021 we switched to AFAS as our ERP system. AFAS is fully committed to e-invoicing, but in daily practice we still receive 90% of the invoices as pdf files. Once the implementation of AFAS was completed, we started looking for a more efficient way to enter those pdf invoices into AFAS.”
“We compared different providers of Scan and Recognize software. In doing so, we looked at the capabilities of the different packages and also considered the cost aspect. Once we started using the free version of TriFact365, we immediately realized that TriFact365 was going to save us a lot of time.”
Significant time savings when entering invoices
Three months later it appears that this first impression is still correct. Maikel: “In TriFact365 you get a concept booking based on the pdf file, which automatically recognizes the correct creditor, ledger account number, invoice amount and VAT code. In most cases, this concept can be forwarded to AFAS with one push of a button, without any modifications. The time savings compared to the old way of working is considerable.”
TriFact365 is a Dutch FinTech company, founded in 2012. We are a provider of software that allows financial documents to be read largely automatically into a wide range of different accounting packages. At the time of writing over 20,000 organizations use our software.
