- Invoices can be approved from anywhere, managers have more control of their respective departments and users can approve invoices immediately

“We wanted our employees to use the same system for everything, and have successfully developed and customized eye-share to fit all our needs”, says Monica Wexelsen-Freihow, Accounting Manager at Active Brands.

Active Brands uses several eye-share products, including: eye-share Invoice, eye-share Travel, eye-share Contract and eye-share General Ledger. All modules have been customized according to their needs.

“We wanted our employees to not be dependent on several systems, but instead be able to carry out their daily tasks from a single point of access. We have successfully developed and customized eye-share Invoice to fit all our needs, resulting in much better overview and control, as well as being able to approve invoices from any location”, Wexelsen-Freihow says.

“No missing invoices”
The Active Brands Group is one of the leading suppliers of sports and outdoor clothing and apparel in Scandinavia and has a yearly turnover of 800 million NOK. Every one of their 165 employees has an eye-share user account.

Accounting Manager Monica Wexelsen-Freihow was involved in the process when eye-share Invoice was implemented in 2013.

“The accounting department experienced difficulties when trying to locate all the invoices as they moved through the organization. With eye-share Invoice, we are much more in control and are able to see the big picture right away – with no invoices going missing. Invoices can be approved from anywhere, managers have more control of their respective departments and users can approve invoices immediately”, she says.

“Listened to our needs”
Communication with Eye-share before, during, and after the implementation of eye-share Invoice has been very important as several customizations were made in order to suit Active Brands’ needs.

“Our contacts in Eye-share were very cooperative, and we felt that they listened to our needs as users. Our suggestions were either implemented right away locally or recorded and included in the next release of the software”, Wexelsen-Freihow says.

And – although several modules have been installed, and many customizations to the software have been made on top of this, training new users has proven to be very easy.

“Training new users is virtually automatic as the threshold to use the system is very low. We show new users the scanning process, but eye-share Invoice is in itself so simple and almost self-explanatory”, Wexelsen-Freihow says.
