The jury includes representatives from Oracle France, Oracle, PeopleSoft and JD Edwards userâs clubs, the press and the academic world. It was unanimous in choosing the Automated Supplier Invoice Capture Running Under Oracle project for the Special Jury Award. Headed by Mr FrÃ©dÃ©ric Dufau-JoÃ«l, Information Systems Director at La Boite Ã Outils (Samse), the project uses ITESOFT.FreeMind for Invoices, ITESOFTâs electronic supplier invoice capture and automatic processing solution integrated into the Oracle E-Business Suite.
Ranked third in the French market for building materials and DIY, Samse generates a turnover of close to â¬900M. In 2007 Samse implemented a system for the automatic capture, processing, matching and approval of its annual 500,000 supplier invoices.
FrÃ©dÃ©ric Dufau-JoÃ«l describes the results: âAdopting an automated solution has allowed La Boite Ã Outils outlets to refocus on their core business: 56% of invoices are now matched automatically. And thatâs not all: the approval process has also become much faster.â
He added: âWe are proud to receive this Trophy, recognising as it does our long-term collaboration with ITESOFT, a partner that has not only helped us with the technological and functional implementation of the Oracle environment, but also has provided support to staff and to the project management process.â
Philippe Lijour, ITESOFT Managing Director, said: âThe interoperability of our business-specific automated document solutions with leading market ERP systems, such as Oracle, Peoplesoft and JD Edwards, is one of the main pillars of our development strategy. Oracleâs recognition of the Samse project with the Oracle Applications Trophies proves both that our strategy works and that our solution performs well in this environment.â
