The ZUGFeRD invoice format allows invoice data to be transmitted in a structured manner in a PDF file and to be read and processed without further steps. At the header and item level, incoming ZUGFeRD invoices can be read in the basic or standard profile using the JobRouter® application without the module. However, if you want to read or generate all the data of a ZUGFeRD-compliant invoice in structured form, the JobFerd add-on module is required.
The module provides a system activity that can be integrated into any existing JobRouter® process. This completely eliminates the need for manual entry of invoices or OCR-based reading of invoice data.
JobFerd offers much more than a simple document reader
While conventional document readers basically only compare OCR data with the data in a database, JobRouter® generates all the necessary components of a ZUGFeRD-compliant invoice itself.
For incoming invoices that comply with the ZUGFeRD standard, JobFerd can simply extract the invoice data and transfer it to a JobRouter® process. The invoice can then be booked from the invoice process and archived with the JobArchive module. All ZUGFeRD fields can be linked to the process fields. It is also possible to transfer the position data to a JobRouter® sub-table.
To create ZUGFeRD-compliant outgoing invoices, the JobFerd module can supplement existing PDF files with ZUGFeRD data. The data of the process and sub-tables of the respective process serve as the basis for this.
In addition, the JobPDF module can be used to generate beautifully formatted ZugFeRD-compliant PDF files, including XML data, from the process data. The data of the process and sub-tables of the respective process also serve as the basis for this. The layout of the output documents can be adapted to the needs of the user. This includes, for example, the selection of the letterhead as the background for the invoice. The generated PDF file can then be sent from JobRouter® as a finished invoice simply by e-mail and permanently archived in the JobArchive module.
