Inalfa Roof Systems B.V, one of the world’s leading providers of vehicle roof systems to manufacturers including BMW Group, Ford, Land Rover and Volkswagen, has deployed PaletteInvoice to automate processing of the approximate 30,000 invoices it receives annually, and PaletteBuyer to create controlled and automated audit trails at its headquarters and its factory in Slovakia.
The solution was supplied and configured by Palette partner Simac Document Solutions, a leading integrator and service provider in Benelux. Inalfa evaluated several suppliers’ solutions to determine which would automate and manage procurement processes to drive efficiencies across its business. Inalfa selected Palette because of its comprehensive user-interface, the software’s flexibility, and because it was the most user-friendly system.
Noud van der Locht, CFO Europe at Inalfa Roof Systems B.V. commented: “There was a clear requirement to establish electronic procurement processes, to improve efficiency in the company through managed, visible audit trails of our invoicing and purchasing processes.
“There were a number of factors to consider in choosing an appropriate system: software flexibility and capacity to adapt in future, a cost-effective solution for our business, local partnership with the provider and last but not least, ability to integrate with our current ERP system.”
Around 90 staff in Inalfa’s management and accounts departments use Palette to generate purchase orders and process invoices.
