The transformation of Barentz

When it comes to digital transformation and developments in the platform economy, commerce is definitely in the danger zone. There is no time to stand still and that is why Barentz hired Second Company to build a digital strategy.

The approach of Second Company

Second Company worked with Barentz on their digital transformation with 2.5 FTE for more than 3 years. Various solutions were designed and implemented: a Sales-app, a robot for invoice processing and an improved workflow for purchase-to-pay and order-to-cash.


The results

  • Better and more fun cooperation with sales staff by means of a user-friendly sales app that provides good feedback.
  • Booking invoices faster and more accurately with the Scalabot. With this robot, time-consuming repetitive actions belong to the past. Invoices are scanned by the robot and entered into the system based on a decision tree. Mouse and keyboard are controlled by Scalabot, the screen is recognized and the right choices are made.
  • More efficient workflow for purchase-to-pay and order-to-cash thanks to a digital transformation of these processes from start to finish. Many tens of thousands of invoices are processed automatically in this way.
