avvaneo partners with Centrifuge to bring blockchain to financial process automation

Frankfurt, Germany – 22. May 2019 — avvaneo, a full-service financial process automation (FPA) consultancy today announced it has partnered with Centrifuge - the Operating System for the financial supply chain - to create a more open and innovative blockchain-based supply chain for ERP, accounting systems, and other financial processes.

Through their partnership, Centrifuge will provide the advanced open source blockchain technology that avvaneo will integrate into ERP and other accounting systems.  This will enable clients and third parties to collaborate and exchange money, purchase orders, issue invoices and other important documents in a privacy preserving, secure, and verifiable environment — all using a single standard.
