)-- Newgen Software Technologies limited, a leader in the field of Business Process Management (BPM) and Enterprise Content Management (ECM), today announced the successful implementation of its suite of DMS products at Kuoni Travel Group to achieve a transparent and efficient workflow leading to a paperless office.
The Kuoni Travel Group, India, is one of the country’s largest travel and tourism company, and is a 100% subsidiary of Kuoni Travel Holding Switzerland. Kuoni was struggling to manage a huge number of documents to centralize and detach the finance function from the businesses. With their fast-expanding operations, they realized that there was an imminent need for an efficient and effective Document Management System, which could also ensure seamless scalability of operations well into the future. The company planned to segregate and centralize the finance function from the core businesses, to streamline processes as finance was critical for organization’s success and maintaining its market leadership.
With the help OmniDocs and OmniFlow DMS, Newgen successfully automated critical finance processes such as Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable and multiple internal-approval processes at Kuoni. The solution has been integrated with SAP, allowing users at the Shared Service Center to view images from within the SAP entries and make image-based entries. It facilitates information exchange between branches, vendor management site (scanning) and Shared Service Centers. Talking about the implementation Dhiren Savla, CIO, Kuoni said, “We were able to achieve improved task allocation and management as well as more accurate turnaround time measurements for the company’s Shared Service Center operations. Newgen has scored highly on every parameter, and emerged as the solution of choice for us.”
Newgen worked closely with PriceWaterhouseCoopers to implement the solution across all the lines of businesses of Kuoni. The entire implementation was completed within three months.
Speaking of Newgen’s solution that has helped the Kuoni achieve a paperless office, Punit Jain, Vice President – Sales and Marketing, Newgen Software Technologies, said, “We are glad that our solutions has benefited Kuoni reduce the paper work, and facilitate easier storage, routing and archival of documents.
