French outdoor clothing retailer Lafuma Group has selected Esker for the automation and outsourcing of its customer invoices.

The Esker solution will process 300,000 invoices annually for the group's seven brands (Lafuma, Millet, Eider, Oxbow, Killy, Ober and Le Chameau), 60,000 of which are outside France.

Prior to implementing the Esker solution, each company within the Lafuma Group managed its invoices internally, with manually printing and using envelopes.

"We selected Esker for its clear pricing, its capacity to offer low postage rates regardless of mail volume, and for its natural integration into our Cegid business application," said Olivier Salivet, Lafuma's director of information systems.
