Why ICreative

ICreative helps companies, institutions and governments to aquire more control on business spend and less complexity, and consequently less operational costs, of the purchase-to-pay process. Our services:

Technology Partner

We have supported many organizations with implementation of Basware and kofax technology and connection to the largest open business network in the world (Basware Network).

Basware en Kofax

ICreative is an implementation partner of Basware and Kofax technology. Similar to most software companies, our suppliers are making a Cloud transition and offer their solutions on SaaS-basis. This implies a relatively fast implementation (and integration with ERP systems) and a subsequent continuous adjustment and improvement of the implemented technology according to changing business requirements. With regards to Basware, we offer three standardized packages [in Dutch] to ensure speedy implementation and hence quick results.

Besides implementation and continuous improvement, we offer a Service Center for daily support of Basware and Kofax technology. Our support center consists of technical consultants that offer full-time support to our customers.

Basware Network

Besides automation of invoicing and the purchase-to-pay process in general, we oftentimes make use of the Basware Network to help companies receive (and send!) invoices and purchase orders from suppliers (and to customers). Basware Network is the largest open transaction network in the world and is also connected to the Simplerinvoicing network.

Knowledge Partner

During the past 15 years, ICreative has gained a vast amount of knowledge in the fields of purchase-to-pay and e-invoicing. Knowledge which we would like to share by means of our Academy.

Purchase-to-Pay Automatisering

ICreative is a thought leader in the fields of e-invoicing and purchase-to-pay automation. Technology ensures that processes related to outgoing orders and incoming invoices, are digitzied (information -> data) and automated (data <-> processes). This implies the initial reduction of labor to process e.g. invoices manually. But also that more knowledge work will be required. According to the World Economic Forum, by 2022 about 75 milion jobs will disappear, but about 133 milion jobs will actually appear due to automation and robotization of manual labor. Automation begats new forms of interaction with information technology and offers new possibilities with data mangement and analysis.

ICreative Academy

We frequently share our thoughts on e-invoicing, purchase-to-pay automation, Basware and Kofax with publications and webinars (see our Academy).

Excellence Partner

Our customers oftentimes observe quick results upon technology implementation, but also notice that the degree of automation at some seizes. This is not entirely suprising as technology is typically developed for markets and not for individual enterprises.

To maximize the level of automation for a specific company, we offer several additional services, including:

  • Quality control of invoices: An invoice can be received as a data file (e-invoice), but if the information in the file is not valid or if specific information is missing, automated invoice processing will not be possible. Hence we offer a service to validate and enrich each invoice, by using several sources, including the master data in your ERP system(s).
  • Automation of peripheral activities: Activities that reside around the main purchase-to-pay process are typically excluded from automation solutions. An example is the collected of invoices at supplier portals. Thanks to Robotic Process Automation such activities can be automated as well.
  • Onboarding of suppliers: To ensure a jump-start with e-invoicing, collaboration with suppliers is vital. By using a business network, such as the Basware Network, suppliers hardly need to adapt to your transition to e-invoicing. Instead of sending invoices directly to your AP department, suppliers can continue to send invoices in any format they like, albeit they must send it the Basware Network instead. We can help your suppliers with this small change.
