Meet Pauline.

Pauline is the bookkeeper of a medium-sized company that sells water filtration systems.

Lately, she’s been spending more and more time in front of her computer. First, it was a couple of hours after work, then weekends. She used to love accounting tasks, but now her workload is unmanageable. The deadlines and the demand for manual data capture are never-ending.

In one day she receives hundreds of emails, can work on four different platforms, will print around 50 invoices to capture, and waits for documents to be signed off payment by her manager.

This is a typical scenario understood by bookkeepers and accountants. What Pauline and others like her need, is efficiency. A way to use integrated accounting systems and reduce the number of hours it takes to process documents manually.

That sounds like a great idea, doesn’t it? So, what stops a company from finding a solution like this?

The fear of change

Well, let’s be honest. The fear of causing more work and more chaos is a big deterrent for accounting departments. There is also a reluctance to move to new accounting software when you’re used to the current accounting system.

Everyone knows they should do it, and everyone knows that eventually they will have to do it, but it’s human nature to avoid pain.

Ok, fair enough. But what if you could get your hands on an integrated accounting system that promises:

  • Seamless integration with your existing accounting software
  • Maximization of your existing accounting system with powerful AI and machine capabilities
  • An 18 hours per week saving in manual data capturing
  • 3x more productivity, with 85% faster completion of work
  • 59% more environmentally friendly
  • Improve customer relationship management by being ahead of customer expectations and easily managing an expanding customer base
  • A reasonable monthly subscription fee where you don’t pay more to add users

This is where we introduce Envoice. Let’s take a look at how it works and what benefits it holds for streamlining your workflow.

How to eliminate repetitive bookkeeping tasks?

For a bookkeeper like Pauline this can save many hours of work and reduce her workload by 18 hours a week. A welcome relief at a time when company growth causes an unsustainable rise in workload.

Stilabunt, an Envoice client had this to say about the increase in efficiency and the reduction of workload:

“Earlier, we used to send all the invoices to one email address or leave paper invoices on the desk of the purchasing specialist. Now, all our employers can directly forward the invoices to Envoice and purchase invoices are received and digitalized instantly. From there, invoices are automatically directed to our enterprise management software, where in-house approval takes place. Thanks to Envoice, the whole ordeal of processing invoices has become quicker and easier.”
– Kadri Kõrgend – Accountant Stilabunt

Integrating Envoice with your existing accounting software can be achieved in three easy steps. But if you prefer to to test out the software before making a decision you can sign up for a FREE TRIAL.

Envoice integrations


Unique Invoice Inbox

Every company that signs up with Envoice, receives a unique Invoice Inbox address. When supplier invoices are submitted to this address the data is extracted and can be synced to your existing accounting software.

Everything in one place

With Envoice you can collect, approve and track everything in one place. This eliminates the need to use multiple platforms to execute the full accounting process.

Eliminates physical storage

Envoice also eliminates the need for physical storage space, thereby reducing the risk of damaged and lost documentation.

Integration with existing storage applications

If you currently use storage service providers such as OneDrive or DropBox, you can easily send documents from there directly to Envoice.

1Office Estonia found great value in Envoice for it’s ability to put an end to manual document management.

This is what they had to say about Envoice:

“Up until using Envoice, our document management was 100% manual and as most of our clients are non-residents, we had to deal with original documents in various languages. Processing and translating documents are very time-consuming, therefore, we highly appreciate using Envoice, which saves a lot of our valuable time”

– Ketlin Genergard, the head accountant of 1Office Estonia.

Paperless accounting

The strongest testimony for paperless accounting comes from other clients that have struggled with the challenges of manual processing and printing.

Let’s examine together the testimony of another Envoice client, Reval Auto. Their goal was to go completely paperless and cut down on the usage of paper, and printing materials.

In Reval Auto, 900 purchase invoices are processed monthly, which used to be translated into 50 paper folders in a year. In addition to the goal to go paperless, the aim of adapting the new system was to fasten the processes related to invoices and simplify approval rounds and archiving.

The head accountant, Aune Seil, adds, “It wasn’t easy to manage the paperwork of three different dealerships. I’m working from the Kuressaare dealership but I also have to keep an eye on the paperwork of the Pärnu and Tallinn dealerships, and it’s not always easy to understand the essence of an invoice without knowing the actual context. Every branch has its own management who has to approve the invoices and the Tallinn dealership has 5 sub-divisions. The invoices would sometimes travel for days as some of them would be left unnoticed on someone’s desk or in their e-mail inbox. Monthly reports were often delayed but the essence of bookkeeping is that it should be done as quickly as possible to better analyze the activities of the company.

The final word belongs to one of our clients:

After comparing different solutions, Envoice immediately stood out for its clarity, simple and logical structure, and pricing. “I used the Envoice demo version for two weeks and I had to admit that it was really comfortable. The demo version enabled us to play out our whole business process up until the accounting program. We also tested some other solutions, which turned out to be too detailed or confusing or had an annoying color scheme. As we’ll be working with the software every day, the visual part is also very important and not every solution out there has a demo version available where you could put the accounting program to test.
