Post this acquisition, Lyanthe will continue to operate under its own name and with the current team as an independent part of the Visma Group. All collaborations that Lyanthe has with software suppliers and administrative service providers will continue unchanged, writes Visma.
Why this acquisition?
With this acquisition, Visma will get a solution for automatic invoice processing. This allows the accountancy and administrative offices to automate their administrative processing processes, based on rule-based algorithms. The solution would be more accurate than the invoice processing functionality in most accounting packages.
Lyanthe’s solution processes up to 95 per cent of all invoice administration automatically without any human intervention. This combination between technology and human actions makes the entire processing process faster, says Visma.
The robotic accounting technology automatically puts the processed invoices in the right place in the administration of the right customers. This frees up a lot of capacity at the accountancy firms in the pre-accounting team.
Lyanthe’s platform connects with many accounting packages in the Netherlands and Belgium.
Visma will integrate Lyanthe’s technology into its Visma Connected Experience portfolio for accounting and administration firms. This platform of integrated solutions supports all activities within accountancy and administration offices.
With the software, accountancy firms in the Netherlands and Belgium process more than 150,000 invoices daily for more than 120,000 administrations in 7 countries.
