Michael Conway, Finance Manager
Unit4 Invoice Capture is a proven innovative solution that alleviates the all too common challenges, frustrations and payment delays found in many AP processes including inefficient use of staff resources, error prone rekeying of paper invoices, ineffective processes to identify and rectify invoice content issues, delays in visibility of accounting commitments and the inability to meet payment terms.
Seamlessly integrates with, and leverages, your existing Unit4 solution. Invoice Capture takes feeds of invoice numbers, PO numbers and suppliers from Financials and Business World to validate invoice data and once this is achieved, seamlessly passes back the extracted invoice data and image where the latter can be viewed at any time from within those solutions.
Single place to view, resolve and report on invoice exceptions
The Exception Handler allows invoices that can’t be processed first time to be separated from other invoices; putting them into a single place where they can be rectified and the issues reported on to drive continuous process improvement.
Transforms paper invoice processing through scanning
The solution extracts key invoice information automatically (Optical Character Recognition – OCR) and intelligently, without the need to create pre-defined templates. The data capture also has a “knowledge base” with the ability to “learn”, thereby continuously improving the data capture performance.
Allows you to handle invoices sent in any format. Even if your organisation only currently receives paper invoices, you can be safe in the knowledge that Invoice Capture can accompany you on the journey towards e-invoicing as it provides common processing for pdf, xml and EDI invoices.
