CeBIT 2017: WMD to Present New Solutions for Optimizing Business Processes

February 13, 2017

New developments of xSuite clear away isolated technical solutions and establish end-to-end digital processes

For the CeBIT 2017 (March 20th to 24th) in the digital office area of the Bitkom stand B17 in Hall 3, the WMD Group will present current extensions made to its xSuite solution spectrum. The modules for postal receipt, invoices, purchase orders, sales orders, folders, contracts and archive each contribute to reducing enterprise process costs, slimming down IT infrastructure and administration, and increasing the transparency of work processes. The solutions offered by WMD are suited to the needs of both SAP users and the users of other ERP systems.

WMD’s xSuite links different processes with the most advanced technology on a standardized platform. The beginning of the process chain is the digital postal receipt solution Mailroom for the automatic content-based classification of incoming mail. As a distribution station, it receives documents from diverse sources, processes them and, by means of a ruleset, forwards them automatically to the internal system. What is new for the CeBIT is that this workflow engine distributes the “work packages” and deposits them in the archive. WMD’s electronic processing of inbound invoices is a best-practice solution that fully covers processing of inbound invoices with and without PO reference, including scanning and classification at the outset of the process, approval workflows in and beyond SAP, and the final posting step at the end.

WMD will present an electronic workflow for procurement and a new solution for incoming order confirmations; ways in which to work digitally with documents that come up on a daily basis, demonstrated with its cross-ERP-system folder and contract solutions; and an archive system integrated for the purposes of document storage and tracking, in SAP via ArchiveLink, and otherwise as a web service.

Technically speaking, all modules are cast from a single mould. With the xSuite as the central platform, can be linked to end-to-end work processes such as procure-to-pay and order-to-cash. They can be used on-premises, in the cloud or as hybrid cloud solutions. WMD has also developed a specialized solution for inbound invoices, filling the particular requirements of the public sector and will introduce this as well at CeBIT.

Under the title “Totally Digital, Digitally Ingenious” of his CeBIT talk, WMD Product Marketing Manager David Spaeth will address the issue of integrating isolated technical solutions (on Tuesday, March 21, 2017, at 1:30-2:00 p.m., and on Wednesday, March 22, 2017, at 2-2:30 p.m., on the Digital Office Stage, Hall 3, B06.
