Preparation of accounting statements
Agreeable and comprehensible consumption statements

We help you relieve your service staff by preparing your consumption statements so that they are agreeable and comprehensible. Clear document design and individual consumption graphics ensure the best possible transparency and high customer satisfaction.
All roads lead to the customer
No two customers are the same, so that their requirements also differ. Let your customers themselves decide how they want to receive their documents. Whether via postal delivery, e‑mail or electronic archive – our innovative tools help you meet customer requirements and advance your digitalization. We support the transition to e‑invoicing with all common formats, such as EDIFACT, ZUGFeRD and XRechnung.
Know what has been received
We ensure that your e‑mails and postal shipments reach their recipients. We register undeliverable e‑mails via bounce management, and send you this information as a report. Undeliverable e‑mails are automatically transferred for printing the following day, and sent by post. Incorrect or invalid residential addresses on postal consignments are matched with Deutsche Post’s databases, and the shipments redirected accordingly.
