For most organizations, half of all invoices still arrive as paper, while the rest arrive via email and electronic data interchange (EDI). Processing invoices from multiple sources can bog your AP department down with manual data entry, stacks of paperwork, lost invoices and a lack of visibility into invoice processing. With invoice scanning software and intelligent data capture, you accelerate the invoice cycle by eliminating the manual effort that leads to miss-keyed data, human errors and duplicate work.
Invoice capture software extracts data regardless of format
Hyland technology uses optical character recognition (OCR) or intelligent data capture technology to extract, validate and export data from any invoice format and reduce the overall manual touch points throughout invoice processing.
- Import invoices in multiple formats including images, PDF, XLS, XML and EDI
- Extract invoice data such as PO number, vendor number or amount via OCR
- Store invoices alongside related documents – check images, packing slips, correspondence – in a single electronic library
