Colis Privé Selects Esker on Demand

Package delivery specialist automates vendor invoices in SAP environment

Madison, Wis.Nov. 27, 2012Colis Privé, a French specialist in private package home delivery, uses Esker, a document automation service provider, to automate over 15,000 vendor invoices annually via the Esker on Demand solution.

Already a user of Esker to automate and deliver its outbound documents—such as customer invoices—Colis Privé now leverages the company’s solution to capture and automate its vendor invoices to deliver end-to-end automation for all business processes. As a result of the Esker cloud-based solution integration with SAP, Colis Privé benefits from a new level of productivity that it would not have achieved with a traditional paper-based process.

“Prior to Esker, it was almost impossible for us to manage document processing in a traditional manner,” said Yann Yhuel, Administrative and Financial Director at Colis Privé. “Esker delivered not only an efficient automation solution to improve our business processes but also a Software as a Service (SaaS) model which offered us the simplicity and immediacy to help grow our dynamic young business.”

Structured around a network of 18 regional agencies, Colis Privé delivers over 100,000 packages daily with the support of 1,700 subcontractors. Given its size and decentralized model, Colis Privé relies on Esker to automate its outbound and inbound documents. This includes automation of over 40,000 letters sent annually to customers (such as administrative mail and delivery tracking notices); over 2,000 customer invoices and customer reminder letters sent annually; electronic invoices; and now the automation and capture of over 15,000 vendor invoices.

“From the reception of vendor invoices to the delivery of customer invoices, our entire document process is automated without having to worry about maintaining an infrastructure or its related costs,” said Yhuel. And thanks to Esker’s seamless integration with SAP, we are able to deploy the solution completely transparently, without the need for an SAP developer onsite.”
