In 2017, Nizhnekamskneftekhim started up a project of switching to a legally significant EDM to work with domestic counterparties. The switch procedure involved not only the integration solution that allows working with electronic documents directly in accounting system ERP, but also a fundamental change in the business processes. EDM with non-residents did not require significant efforts due to the interest of counterparties in establishing electronic exchange and the simplicity of the paperwork procedure proposed by SKB Kontur for the approval of legal significance by the parties.
The scope of the first stage of the exchange project included powers of attorney for the receipt of finished goods, which significantly shortened the processing time for shipment to overseas customers and saved the cost for documentation processing. In the future, the company plans to expand the list of documents to be exchanged electronically.The use of international EDM will have a positive effect in the interaction between partners and will widen their coverage, as well as allow to indirectly facilitate the company’s document flow with currency control agents (customs, banks, tax authorities).
