Automated exchange of business documents

Abacus E-Business guarantees you a media-consistent and highly automated data exchange with your business partners - around the clock, seven days a week.

Digitise processes with your customers and suppliers with Abacus E-Business and benefit from the connection to common networks for e-documents. Send and receive electronic documents (EDI) including e-invoices. Exchange data electronically with your business partners and process it automatically - without paper. An optional add-on is WebTicketing, which allows you can enter your error messages online at any time and trigger a service order.

With the help of the Order Processing software module, e-invoices / eBills are automatically delivered to your business and private customers and archived in accordance with the law. The receipt of e-invoices is completely automated. Incoming e-invoices are automatically imported into the accounts payable software and sent to the inbox of the person responsible for approval. Account assignment rules and the assignment of the person responsible for approval are considered.
