CDC Fast dematerializes the expenses written proofs of Paris City
Dematerialization - 09 March 2012
In the framework of its approach of modernization and optimization of the working process of the accounting line, and further to a call for tenders, Paris City chose CDC Fast to transmit electronically all its expenses written proofs and to archive its flows.
The first dematerialised exchanges took place on 23 September last year and the first dematerialised accounts closing is in the process of completion. Following the dematerialisation of 400,000 internal invoices from 2009 onwards, the introduction of shared accounting services in 2010 and 2011 and the migration to Hélios financial management software by the Regional Public Financed Directorate (DRFIP), also in 2010, the next step was to optimise accounting processes by extending the scope of the system to all accounting written proofs, including employee payrolls.
By the end of October, reductions in printing of between 50% and 65% were already being achieved. The time savings for employees are considerable, and the potential offered by dematerialisation has also helped to optimise some working processes in the public accounts department.
Regular dialogue has been established between the partners to keep the project moving forward. As one of the next steps, the city is keen to proceed in 2012 with the dematerialisation of receipts, which account for 1.5 million paper documents.
