  • Cost centre management

  • Documentation of processes

The goal for Julia

  • Fast invoice release

The challenge

Accountants walking down the corridor with approval folders were not an uncommon sight. Early on, Julia Jansen drew up a detailed specification in which she recorded exactly which features a software for invoice management had to have. She still lacked the right tool for this. It was particularly important to the company that different limited liability companies could work separately with the software and that it was easy to implement.

"From a certain size onwards, the start-ups no longer sit in house - that makes for enormous effort in analogue approval processes."


  • More overview and transparency

  • Central management of all invoices

  • Simple administration

Success factors

  • Individual workflows

  • Simple implementation

  • Daily reminder emails

The result

After careful research, Julia Jansen decided on CANDIS. In addition to a video depicting the problems of the processes before CANDIS, there were also mini-kickoffs with the Managing Directors after the big launch of the new tool. The step towards paperless invoice management has paid off! All staff can now view and approve all invoices transparently. The old release folders were replaced by a clear and intuitive tool. Workflows were set up and individually adapted for the employees.

Recommendation to all SMEs

The IONIQ Group has recommended CANDIS to our customer solarisBank: CANDIS digital invoice approval is suitable for all SMEs.
