Furniture Distributor Improves Invoice Processing with Automated EDI Export into Salesforce CRM
A furniture distributor was seeking an automated solution to help make their invoice processing workflow more efficient. Before discovering CVISION’s Trapeze for Invoice Processing, the firm would print invoices from their inbox in order to manually input the data into their CRM system, Salesforce. This labor-intensive workflow was costly, slow, and error-prone as workers handled high volumes of invoices each week.
In order to combat these inefficiencies, the firm sought an automated invoice processing solution that could connect with their CRM setup. Initially, the distribution company entertained a product which offered limited, template-based extraction at a very high price tier. They continued their search and landed on CVISION’s Trapeze for Invoice Processing, a highly accurate invoice data extraction tool not limited by template-only recognition. Critically, Trapeze also offered the capability of EDI integration with their CRM setup, enabling the firm to automatically export invoice data directly into Salesforce.
The furniture distributor currently extracts data from 2,000 invoices per month with CVISION’s Trapeze for Invoice Processing. With a successful EDI integration into Salesforce, Trapeze has made the overall accounts payable process easier by automating unnecessary steps in the previous, manual workflow. In the first months following deployment, the firm is already noticing improvements in the speed and accuracy of their invoice workflow, successfully automating data extraction for 90% of their invoices. With Trapeze’s sophisticated machine learning capabilities, the distributor expects to see even greater invoice data accuracy rates over time. This enables faster invoice processing and an accelerated time to value as automation rates increase.
