6 steps to digital invoice processing with Doxis

Step 1:

Invoice receipt

Doxis begins processing electronic invoices as soon as they arrive. Corresponding interfaces enable Doxis to autonomously access the digital inbox and retrieve the invoices arriving there. Paper-based invoices must be scanned in line with regulatory requirements before being transferred to Doxis.

  • Extendible to establish company-wide inbound mail processing & even a complete ECM platform
  • Digital invoice ledger

Step 2:

Extraction of data

An integrated OCR function enables Doxis to recognize, capture and interpret all relevant invoice data. Doxis then automatically files the invoice in the context-based digital file, for instance in the corresponding supplier file.

  • Suitable for all formats: paper, PDF, email, XML, XRechnung, ZUGFeRD 2.0, etc.
  • For invoices with & without a PO reference (including automatic posting), single, partial, collective and final invoices
  • On-the-fly learning allows the system to constantly improve the recognition of invoice documents

Step 3:


Doxis checks that inbound invoices are correct and contain all mandatory information. Missing or incorrect content is flagged immediately, so you can take fast action in the event of, e.g., discrepancies between the order confirmation, and head off production delays at the pass.

Doxis transfers the invoice data in the correct format to your ERP system, e.g. SAP, via an interface for further processing.

  • Cover all types of release processes
  • Deep integration in SAP & connection to any ERP & financial accounting system
  • Supports a wide range of currencies and up to 13 languages

Step 4:


Doxis transfers the verified invoice to a release workflow and uses various criteria, e.g. cost center, invoice items and amounts, to determine who is responsible and assign them the task of releasing the invoice. The multi-stage release workflow ensures you fulfill all internal requirements, such as the separation of duties. A deputy rule lets you sub in alternative coworkers at short notice to keep the invoice release process moving swiftly and prevent backlogs.

  • Automatically define processors and escalation mechanisms
  • Multi-stage release workflow, delegation and deputy rules

Step 5:


After the invoice has been released, Doxis transfers all posting-related data to your ERP or accounting system, where employees post the invoice within the payment deadline.
