The business model of SMACC GmbH is based on the knowledge that the linear processes in classic bookkeeping are inefficient and, in particular, that the communication between the external accountant and client is too lengthy, so that the entrepreneur does not have data on the financial situation of his company until weeks or months later are already out of date at this point in time. SMACC GmbH wants to accelerate this process without incurring additional work for the client. It should be ensured that processes can be booked within a short time and the current financial status can be output online via an interface. In addition, all booking data is prepared for the tax advisor and can be called up by him via a DATEV interface and used in his software.
The effort on the part of the client should be kept as low as possible. He just reads in all receipts and invoices and sends them automatically and without comment to his mailbox in the SMACC cloud. This can be done with just one push of a button via a special SMACC scanner, which transfers the documents and clearly assigns them to the client. However, this can also be done using a browser application on the PC if the invoice is already electronically available. The client can also simply take a picture of the receipt using a smartphone app and transfer it to their cloud mailbox.
Cloud OCR software records the content of the transferred documents and generates meta data and an ID for further processing. The original image file, the recorded content and the metadata are stored as entries in databases and then managed via a document management system.
The aim of the project is the development of a cloud-based software solution for the implementation of new types of automated processes in online accounting, for which it is necessary to find new solutions for a more efficient design of the accounting workflow. As a result, internal processes such. B. can be automatically assigned to an accountant and accounted for by him. In addition, document-based communication should be developed between all those involved in the process.
The result is a market-ready software solution that gives customers more transparency and control over their company by means of intelligent processes and thus generating up-to-date financial data.
