Faster Invoice Processing with AP Automation
Enterprises are increasingly aware that paper and people-based processes lead to high AP transaction costs and missed business opportunities. In a recent survey, 42% of the organizations stated that they were experiencing delays in receiving invoices and/or difficulties in information matching. Researches show that automation is the ultimate way forward for cost savings and improved efficiency.
In fact, companies with best-in-class automation ‘are 89% more likely to view AP as either exceptionally or very valuable from a strategic perspective’. Taking a cue, Incture technologies have built Cherrywork’s Accounts Payable Automation (AP automation) application, with basic Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm, predictive analysis and distinctive 2-way and 3-way matching process.
Successful implementation of this tool is reducing the invoice-processing time by over 50%. This tool reads the invoices in various formats (paper, email, PDF, XML, EDI, etc) from every possible source. The Optical Character Recognition (OCR) scans the invoice headers and line item data and converts it into a readable data. From OCR, the data is then uploaded in the SAP landscape. Hence reducing the time-limit invested on reading the invoice by almost 200 percent.
It is a complete, integrated solution that addresses full range of functions across the accounts payable process. It includes invoice capture, single point of entry, scanning, data validation, extraction and integration with SAP, electronic routing for approvals and other workflow (exception handling), Two Way Match, Three Way Match, Planned Cost, Unplanned Cost Details, PO / Non PO based invoices with all process variants.
