Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH is a member of the Zeppelin group of companies. As a descendant of airship manufacturer Zeppelin the company is a ‘piece of German technological history’, so to speak. Today, the company is active in the trading business and is the exclusive European distributor for Caterpillar construction machinery.
Ever since Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH introduced digital records, the archive has been getting emptier by the day: Four kilometers worth of files have been scanned and disposed of, and Zeppelin benefits from the versatility of the enaio® enterprise content management software from OPTIMAL SYSTEMS. Digital machine records and seamless ERP integration are features the company has been enjoying for several years now – and they make the business of selling construction machinery much easier.
The company has been using the enaio® ECM system for the electronic storage and efficient processing of invoices, reminders, and delivery notes since 2009.
The solution integrates with the ERP system, which facilitates convenient incoming invoice and release workflows directly from the leading ERP system, MS Dynamics NAV. Each workflow step is logged both in the ERP solution and in enaio®, and release processes can be tracked synchronously in both systems. This results in cost savings through the targeted control of accounting processes and brings added efficiency to controlling over the long term.
Zeppelin also appreciates the options for mobile document processing this system provides. For example, field staff can be informed about maintenance and repair work via a specially developed Android app. The company is planning to add an online link to the customer portal, which will allow customers to access invoices and assembly reports.
