“The market has been demanding the digitisation of document streams for years,” says Jeroen Rozeboom, Sales Manager at ICreative. In particular, the digital processing of incoming invoices. This can only produce benefits: transparency of the process, invoices and attachments retrievable at any time, simplicity of auditability, sharing knowledge and so on. The sooner a document is digitised, the better – that’s the motto.

Because this can produce significant cost savings, accompanied by qualitative improvements.
