Invoice Processing for Manufacturing

Turn automation loose on process inefficiency

Accounts payable may not be at the top of the list of candidates for process improvement, but it should be.

Wherever teams manually process documents and distribute data and information, inefficiency always finds its way into the equation. Delays and redundancies, exceptions and workarounds, and time spent reconciling discrepancies and locating information eat away at productivity.

In addition, manufacturers and logistics providers still scramble to bring paper and digital invoice information into their enterprise systems. What should be a simple case of authorizing a payment turns into a string of emails, phone tag and stacks of photocopies shuffled between offices.

Our intelligent capture solution and smart multi-function products serve as starting points to classify and index incoming document information for straight-through processing automatically.
