Heineken Slovakia is a part of HEINEKEN, the largest brewery group in Europe and the second largest in the world. Thanks to the implementation of the SAP-integrated OpenText solution for invoice and contract processing, Heineken Slovensko increased its flexibility, while also cutting the costs of document processing.

The project of electronic approving and archiving of contracts helped optimise the processes in the preparation of investment contracts and shorten the time required for the preparation of each investment contract.

The system also offers added value in the sense of simple and transparent archiving of contracts in a single central database and easy searching for contracts, including records of all the amendments made. The system is absolutely intuitive, which increases the efficiency of each employee.

Storage in a secure archive

Processed contracts and invoices, along with all underlying documents and scanned signed original counterparts, are stored in a well-arranged directory structure, securely archived and made accessible based on the users’ access rights.

Automatic completion of details

Received hard copy and PDF invoices are processed using the OpenText Capture Center OCR system, which reads header data from the invoices.
Thanks to the machine learning technology, the reading success rate is significantly higher compared to other systems.
