Rohlik relies on Rossum to reduce time spent on document validation
A European leader in grocery delivery and innovation, Rohlik promises order fulfillment in 90 minutes or less and offers customers over 17,000 items from which to choose. Established in 2014 and a necessity to Czech society during the Covid-19 crisis, Rohlik has since expanded to Austria, Germany, Italy, Romania, and Spain.
To serve well over 200,000 customers, Rohlik buys groceries wholesale and operates its own fleet of hundreds of delivery vans. This presented their Accounts Payable department with a significant volume of documents to post. And as a company in hypergrowth, the accounting team needed to cope as volumes skyrocketed.
Rossum began processing all incoming invoices of Rohlik, receiving both scanned and digital invoices. Rohlik’s data entry team worked in Rossum’s user interface and took advantage of the tight integration of Rossum with the Abra target ERP. All tasks related to vendor matching and GL coding were done directly in Rossum and the team did not waste time revisiting the document in the ERP system.
Rossum has processed invoices for Rohlik since 2017. Since then, the company reported EUR 2B turnover in 2019, has surpassed 20,000 orders per day, and has expanded to five European countries. With Rohlik’s growth, Rossum’s solution improved at a similar pace. We allowed the company to keep its financial department lean and flexible while utilizing Rossum, with its AP team staying at its original headcount despite the massive company growth.
The company has been one of Rossum’s earliest design partners. Rossum already helped Rohlik through a smooth upgrade to a new ERP system and the business is now going to continue relying on Rossum in its aggressive multinational scale up. Rossum’s planned launch of new EDI capabilities will be one essential piece in this plan.
