Stolt-Nielsen Transportation Group Chooses Hummingbird and HandySoft

Feb 20, 2004


Hummingbird Ltd., a developer of enterprise information management systems (EIMS) and HandySoft Global Corporation, a provider of business process management solutions, have announced that Stolt-Nielsen Transportation Group (SNTG) has successfully deployed Hummingbird Enterprise and HandySoft's BizFlow in an effort to automate and streamline its invoicing and accounts payable processes. The document management and business process management solutions address SNTG's AP workflow requirements across its offices, enabling a more efficient approval process in the distributed environment.

Stolt-Nielsen Transportation Group, a division of Stolt-Nielsen S.A., is a provider of transportation services for bulk liquid chemicals, edible oils, acids, and other specialty liquids. After relocating its accounts payable staff and creating an accounting service center, the Houston office began supporting operations for locations worldwide including offices in Rotterdam and Singapore. The company decided to implement a single global document management repository where accounts payable clerks can store invoice images and supporting documentation and then route them for review and approval to supervisors anywhere in the world.

The Hummingbird Enterprise document management technology is intended to enable SNTG users to securely categorize and store all invoice images together with supporting documentation, such as emails and drawings, in a secure, centralized repository. With the combined Hummingbird/HandySoft technologies, users have the ability to see the invoices and route them through the approval process, even when they are out of the office, without having to use paper copies.
