House Ginestet


Maison Ginestet digitalizes its purchasing process with Belharra and GED Docuware

Belharra, a DocuWare partner in the greater South-West, has specialized in the deployment of dematerialization projects for more than 15 years. We therefore offer a publisher/integrator synergy which allows us to combine expertise and experience to offer the best service to our customers.

Maison Ginestet wanted to work with Belharra because we are a human-sized structure and our geographical proximity allows us to be reactive and agile in carrying out this type of project.

Our pragmatic project methodology involving change management appealed to Maison Ginestet. On the agile model, we make functional adjustments as the project progresses.

In addition, the testimonials of customers who have already deployed the DocuWare solution with Belharra reinforced the teams' choice for this GED within the framework of their activity.

For Maison Ginestet, a merchant of fine Bordeaux wines since 1897 and a major player in the Bordeaux market, the challenge of the project is to digitalize the company's purchasing process.

  • Improve traceability and facilitate remote working

Docuware for dematerialization

  • The integration and indexing of all documents linked to a purchase (purchase order, invoice, delivery note, customs documents, etc.).
  • Validation processes with a different workflow depending on the type and amount of purchase.
  • Exports of accounting entries are done directly in conjunction with the Finance ERP.
