Although Infor Lawson, SAP, Oracle, Dynamics and other ERPs handle data well, manually managing invoice-related content – like paper invoices, packing slips and supporting documents – consumes valuable staff time and resources.
OnBase captures AP documents electronically – whether paper, fax, email or EDI – and automatically indexes them using data from your ERP or accounting software. OnBase prevents policy violations before they occur by routing invoices for all of the approvals your business rules require. OnBase routes exceptions directly to AP clerks, distributing them by region, vendor, time zone or workload to ensure the invoices reach the right people. And, it all happens in a fraction of the time that paper-based processes take.
AP invoices route to the appropriate approvers faster. OnBase emails alerts to approvers when they have invoices to review and even sends periodic reminders if they don't perform the approvals right away.

OnBase helps healthcare organizations:
- Take advantage of early discounts and avoid late payment penalties through automated workflow and electronic alerts
- Lower the cost per invoice by speeding processes and removing duplicate payments, missed discounts and late payment fees
- Eliminate duplicate invoices by managing information electronically, instead of copying them to send to multiple locations, reducing cost and the opportunity for error
- Reduce unaccounted liabilities by bridging the gap between when an invoice arrives and when it appears in the system, allowing AP to know exact liabilities at any given time
- Enhance customer service and save time with immediate electronic access to invoices
