Question: Our company goes through numerous invoices and our accounts payable department is always backed up. Is there a way to improve the efficiency so that we can reduce and even eliminate backlog all together?
Answer: Well the best way to improve efficiency is to move away from manual entry and start to implement automated invoice processing techniques. A great choice is invoice scanning software OCR which stands for optical character recognition. What this technology can do is allow your computer to recognize the scanned characters on the invoices so that all information can be inputted automatically. This will save valuable time and greatly reduce the amount of manual labor.
CVISION Technologies offers excellent OCR in their Maestro Recognition Server product. You can download a free trial by clicking on the link below.
