Press release date: August 1, 2012
Tel Aviv/Cologne - Top Image Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ: TISA), a leading ECM (Enterprise Content Management) intelligent content capture and delivery solutions provider, and Fujitsu company PFU Imaging Solutions Europe today announced signing a joint deal with Nuon. Nuon, a subsidiary of Vattenfall AB, and one of the leading suppliers of gas, electricity, heat and cooling with over 2.3 million customers in the Netherlands, selected eFLOW® for its advanced Digital Mailroom and Invoice Processing solution supported by Fujitsu high-speed scanning.
An early adopter of intelligent recognition, Nuon has deployed eFLOW not only for automated Purchase-to-Payment, but also for automated HR document management as well as for an advanced Digital Mailroom implementation that ensures prompt response to all incoming customer communications, via fax, email, letter or call center. To optimize call center activities, Nuon uses eFLOW Digital Mailroom to automatically classify incoming documents for different workflows according to attributes such as priority, topic and agent skills. eFLOW then extracts information to empower call center agents to complete processes more promptly and effectively.
In an open energy market in which customers can switch suppliers freely, Nuon must maximize efficiency and customer responsiveness. eFLOW helps the company meet its SLAs through automated invoicing with full integration with SAP and transparent control of correspondence with customers. The system lets Nuon minimize slow, error-prone manual operations and replace them with best practice business processes based on high-speed scanning, integrated workflows, full compliance with tax legislation and significant reduction of paper archives.
"We are convinced that Nuon will benefit from the combination of Fujitsu's best-in-class-scanners, in this case the production scanner fi-6800, and with Top Image Systems content capture and delivery solutions," comments Douglas Rudolph, General Manager, Marketing EMEA, Fujitsu company PFU Imaging Solutions. "Scan-to-process is a key initiative for our company. Scanning documents has moved away from an end of the work chain activity to the start of a business process; reducing cost and improving productivity. Nuon's solution with TIS and Fujitsu scanners is a prime example of this in action."
"We are proud to partner with a powerful document scanner supplier such as Fujitsu to provide comprehensive hardware and software solutions to key European enterprises in every industry," remarks Michael Schrader, Managing Director, TIS EMEA. Savvy businesses such as Nuon recognize the value of partnering with technology leaders that they can rely upon to consistently provide superior equipment, solutions and service to run competitive, cost-effective daily operations. In the complex, dynamic and highly regulated energy and utilities sector, satisfied customers such as Stadtwerke Mainz, RheinEnergie and Enel are turning to Top Image Systems to better leverage their existing systems and resources and improve accessibility to the growing volume of data they collect every day. By partnering with Fujitsu on this and many similar deals, we expect our business to grow rapidly, in the energy as well as in other key content-rich industry sectors."
