Digital accounting processes from ordering to payment

New workflow with finAPI simplifies payments at cisbox without switching to online banking

cisbox GmbH has been supporting companies in their digital transformation since 2005. The cloud-based product range includes solutions for electronic ordering, real-time data evaluation and forecasting as well as cisbox Invoice, an AI-supported invoice management system. Companies can use it to digitalise the entire incoming invoice process. This includes the control, account assignment and approval of all incoming invoices, data export to further processing systems and the initiation of payments.

The challenge: inconvenient switch to online banking for payments

In addition to the direct debit procedure, payment by domestic and foreign bank transfer was already possible. However, it was necessary to switch to the respective banking application to execute the transfer. Users had to leave their familiar working environment, carry out additional steps to authenticate themselves, and then execute the transfer manually.

The solution: connecting banks directly via finAPI

Thanks to the integration of finAPI, cisbox Invoice users now have a bank interface that makes account viewing and the payment process more convenient and also more secure. The key factors for choosing finAPI were, first and foremost, a simple setup and intuitive usage. Of course, the security, and protection of (personal) data is also a top priority for cisbox GmbH and its customers, a requirement that is also absolutely fulfilled by finAPI. All in all, the benefits for users are as follows:

cisbox users benefit from optimised workflow

With the integration of the finAPI interface, cisbox GmbH is responding to the current and future needs and requirements of companies with regard to digitalisation, process optimisation and IT security. Users not only benefit from an optimised workflow that accompanies them from the order to the final payment. They can operate from any location and react flexibly even when staffing levels are lower than usual.
