Decreasing Dependency on Paper, While Increasing Efficiency

For many organizations, the challenge is clear: how do you efficiently process a high volume of documents arriving from various sources in various formats? Manually capturing, organizing and entering information into your accounting system can be a burden on resources, have a high margin of error and, more importantly, cost you with late payment penalties. The good news is that, by automating payables, you can process more invoices than ever before, while enjoying greater accuracy and benefitting from early payment discounts, if you choose.

Leveraging Today’s Latest Technologies

OCR technology empowers you to capture invoices quickly and easily, whether you receive them by fax, mail, email or EDI. Once the imaging and data capture has taken place, workflows route the information automatically through your organization to the appropriate business units, performing two- or three-way matching and posting to your accounting system while notifying stakeholders along the way. Because you eliminate the need to re-key information and minimize the number of touches per transaction, you decrease the data entry required and increase process efficiency across the entire department.
