Help shape the ‘future’ of dairy trading

Help shape the ‘future’ of dairy trading

We notice a growing interest among our dairy ingredient trading customers for futures trading. While futures coffee trading is already well established, Qbil-Trade lacks a suitable solution for futures trading in dairy ingredients.

Your insights, expertise and feedback are very valuable to us. Together, we want to discuss what adjustments are needed to make this possible. This conversation will serve as the key to an optimal solution, which we may also be able to extend to other markets in the future.

Do you have interest and experience?

Get involved and let us know soon at info@qbilsoftware.com. We will then contact you and set a date for an online meeting.

Sneak Peek – new UI Qbil-Trade

Sneak Peek – new UI Qbil-Trade

Our software is getting a brand new user interface (UI). With the continuous extensions and new developments of our software, it was necessary to make changes to ensure that the screens remain clear and logical and user-friendly in terms of structure.

This new UI will especially benefit first-time users: more intuitive and a streamlined structure of the screens. But we have also definitely taken into account our experienced users. The changes are thoughtful and not so drastic that they don’t feel familiar any time soon.

We are excited about these improvements, which will increase the efficiency and satisfaction of all our users as they continue to use our software. We expect to put the new UI live in the test environment in November.

Planning renewed

Planning renewed

Your ideas + our ideas = great new planning!

Last year we organized a brainstorming session about our planning module in which a number of our customers were present. Based on their input and feedback, we have completely renewed our planning module.
The new planning is fast, very clear and has many new possibilities. Select a day, week or month. And see all entries and results in one overview. Click on an order. Plan unplanned orders. Nothing can escape your attention anymore!

A very nice new feature is that you can arrange the screen completely according to your own wishes. With the renewed planning module of our software you can now work even more efficiently.

Nothing can escape your attention anymore!

Getting curious?

Watch our video and let yourself be convinced that this planning module is indispensable for your trade! Watch our video below.

We would like to thank Molpoly, Trigona, Wagenaar, Melkweg, Alpha Group, Feed & Food for their time and very valuable input.

In conversation with Marcel Luiten of Feed & Food about our scan & recognize module from Kofax

In conversation with Marcel Luiten of Feed & Food about our scan & recognize module from Kofax

Since January 2022, Feed & Food Group in Zeist has taken the Qbil-Trade / Kofax scan & recognize module into use. We spoke to Marcel Luiten of the finance department of Feed & Food about his experiences with this module.

We can no longer do without

What was the reason for your organization to want to make this optimization step?

Previously, our invoices were provided with barcode stickers, after which we could scan the invoices to Qbil-Trade. That was a laborious process: first print all invoices, stick the stickers and then scan to Qbil-Trade. Now with the Kofax module that is no longer necessary. You don’t have to prepare anything with Kofax.

It’s like we’ve been working with it for years, but we’ve only been live since January. That’s not even a year. But we can no longer do without it.

What is the biggest benefit for you?

Those barcode stickers had to be pasted at the office. We still work hybrid. So half at the office, half from home. The big advantage is that y ou can now work with this system from any location. So even when I work from home, I can book and process our purchase invoices. Ideal.

With the scan & recognize solution from Kofax you do need an extra monitor. That is really a must. At home I use my notebook and another large screen. At the office I have three screens. Two large and one smaller screen so that I can still check my e-mail in between.

Does Kofax save you time?

It saves time, but you still have to check your invoices. That doesn’t go away. We do that in advance. So invoices about which there are questions remain unanswered. You don’t include them in the process yet. And that’s really important because a wrong booking is a lot of work to fix. The process itself is a time saver. Kofax recognizes the invoices, but you have to help the system, especially in the beginning, to learn to recognize the invoices. It’s getting better and better.

The fact that we can work anywhere with this system ensures continuity.

Large invoices with many line items, such as our transport invoices, on which flexible energy surcharges are also levied, are still manual work. Due to the energy surcharges, the amounts do not match. And such an invoice is 4 pages long. That remains  work-intensive. 

But goods invoices are well recognised, which is already a huge benefit.

We use Scansys for our overhead invoices. These are scanned directly into our Exact accounting software. Scansys does the same thing but is not learning. Scansys is then quite rigid compared to Kofax. Kofax keeps getting better because it is a learning system. If you invest some time and effort in this, it will yield a lot of benefits.

How did the implementation go?

We are amazed that it is going so well. From the beginning. The implementation went very smoothly. I am very positive about that. A few things didn’t immediately go well, but that was handled well.
And in the beginning I had that something had to be redone twice. But that’s all.

Do you have any tips?

It is useful to start from the new financial year. By numbering. This way the old numbering can be phased out. And you don’t have to work with two different numbers together.

Are there any other benefits?

It is a great advantage that Kofax is in the Cloud. You never need to download updates. That goes automatically. And the fact that we can work anywhere with this system ensures continuity.

If I had to rate it from 1 to 10, I’d give it a solid 9.
