Toshiba achieves greater productivity and effectively controls TOSHIBA tax documents through ITG Brasil's vSRM Portal.
With the main objective of ensuring the effectiveness of procurement management, Toshiba Infraestrutura América do Sul Ltda. invested with ITG Brasil in the implementation of the vSRM Portal, a complete supply chain management solution (Supply Chain).
Toshiba faced difficulties in managing the complete acquisition flow and controlling invoices. The processes were carried out in conventional ways using spreadsheets and reports updated and generated manually, and in addition, the capture and retrieval of tax information and documents reduced the company’s productive capacity.
ITG Brasil, with the offer of the vSRM Portal, presented the module for the purchase and receipt of electronic invoices, which met the needs of the company, enabling the crossing of data with the company’s ERP system, interaction between the areas and monitoring of all real-time process.
Toshiba has been using the Portal for over 8 years. Initially, we noticed a significant improvement in the control of invoices. Today, it is possible to carry out the crossing of the purchase order with the issuance of the invoice in a simpler way. Another improvement was the reduction of time and rework in several processes that were previously performed manually and are now controlled more securely and in real time by the portal. Not only do I recommend the vSRM Portal, but I am interested in expanding to the use of other modules.
