Toyota Industrial Equipment automates accounts payable with Basware


Basware's invoice automation solution helped the industrial division of the Toyota Group to modernize its finance and administration function. By enhancing invoice validation and dispute management, the new solution greatly improved job satisfaction and performance of the company's accounts payable team.

A specialist in the manufacturing of electric and thermal forklifts, Toyota Industrial Equipment mainly sells its products in Europe (80% of its sales). The components manufacturer designs between 8,000 and 10,000 forklift trucks each year: made-to-order manufacturing which aims to meet customers’ specific requirements. 


The company is faced with invoicing peaks at the end of the month which make the Accounting Department’s task extremely tedious and timeconsuming. Each year, the company processes around 30,000 invoices, an average of 2,500 invoices a month. These figures can increase when business is thriving, a fact which rapidly led Toyota Industrial  Equipment to weigh up the importance of implementing an effective solution to facilitate the management of supplier invoices.

In addition, litigation management was another weak area for the company. The number of litigation cases to be dealt with was leading to significant time loss on several levels. 


Implemented by the company SYLEG, one of Basware’s official partners, the Basware Invoice Automation solution enables automatic processing of supplier invoices, and even expense management. 

“As an official partner to Basware, Syleg played a key role in the implementation of the solution. Its expert knowledge of the constraints associated with the accounting function and its ability to take these constraints into consideration, the remote configuration of the product and Syleg’s high degree of responsiveness where adjustments were required ensured that the project was a real success,” says Mikaël Bourdin. 

The solution, comprising also invoice validation, was implemented in the company’s  Accounting Department and was well received by the teams. Users were offered training to gain a better understanding of the tool. Overall, the implementation project with supervised support lasted 9 months. 

The solution eliminates all of the tedious manual work, enabling accountants just to focus on their job.


Basware Invoice Automation has enabled a considerable amount of time to be saved when it comes to payments: 60% saving in time, i.e. around 8 working hours a month. Invoices are automatically categorized and there is no reconciliation to be carried out.

In terms of dispute management, the Finance Department has seen savings of 50 working hours a month.

Thanks to the monitoring view used by five people, including Head of Management Control, budget monitoring has been significantly optimized (quick and easy checking of invoices, statistics, etc.). Generally, processes have been simplified considerably.


STEP 1: Rapid implementation, instant time savings

The solution was quickly adopted by the team, and the Finance and Administration Department has seen a 60% saving in time (i.e. around 8 working hours a month). 

STEP 2: More efficient dispute management

Optimized invoice tracking and the ability to do on screen checks has made dispute management much more efficient. Time savings: 50 working hours a month.

STEP 3: Budget monitoring significantly optimized

Thanks to quick and easy invoice checking and the availability of statistics on screen, processes have been simplified considerably.  


”The new solution is as indispensable as cash-low software was a few years ago... and all the more so given today's competitive climate where administrative resources are limited. Productivity gains are sought at all levels, even in offices! This software enables this objective to be achieved."

Mickaël Bourdin, Head of Accounting for Toyota Industrial Equipment.
