E-invoicing using OMSconnect
The use of E-invoicing resulted in a greatly reduced circulation time of invoices and a significantly shorter payment period for Vercauteren Transport. The risk of errors or loss of invoices has also fallen drastically. Thanks to the simplicity of OMSconnect and seamless implementation, the switch from traditional paper invoices to e-invoices was made quickly and easily.
Since the start in 1974 Vercauteren Transport is a fixed value for the automotive sector. With 21 trucks and approximately 70 mega-trailers, Vercauteren Transport transports freight and parts for customers throughout the Benelux and Germany, including the Volvo Group. Thus the company has more than 40 years of experience in the automotive sector.
Since May of this year, Vercauteren Transport from Lokeren (B) is using OMSconnect to send invoices directly to Volvo Group via EDI. Until the beginning of this year, they used Excel and e-mail to send their invoices to the Volvo Group. The files had to be edited first and then manually entered into the Volvo Group systems. Not only did this take a lot of time, mistakes were made and data was lost. Therefore invoices were paid not or partially, or (much) too late.
