“We are very comfortable working with Inpute, they take responsibility to deliver. Our business relationship is based on trust. Inpute are a partner to our business.” – Veronica Sullivan, Head of IT, BWG Foods Ltd
The new central billing system designed and implemented by Inpute, captures, processes and validates electronic (EDI) and paper supplier invoices. The system then automatically exports validated data to BWG’s purchase ledger. Using a combination of imaging and COLD technologies, electronic images of all invoices are automatically indexed and stored in an Alchemy document management system, providing instant access for BWG customer service staff.
