Margaretha Urwäder, head of accounts payable from Onoff has 80% incoming e-invoices (170 000 invoices/year). I do believe that in that number both EDI (56%) and PDFs (24%) are accounted for. Paper invoies consists of 21% of the invoices.

For the ninth time ReadSoft is host to a conference on invoice process automation.
Flexibility and accesibility, analysis and decision making support and motivated staff, Martin Lackmann kicks off the day by telling about the background and analysis of the market place today.

Electronic automation is about three steps when talking about workflow systems – from recieving an invoice to paying the debt. Gladly the focus will also be on order automation, both on line level an amount level.
Not only for large organisations and many invoices – ReadSoft talks about workflow systems being a suitable investment down to 1 000 incoming invoices/year.
