Did you know that our OCR option uses the most advanced document and character recognition capabilities available to turn invoices into machine-readable information? Based on 30 years of experience and a sophisticated knowledge-base, it extracts header and line item details with high precision. And in situations where certain fields are not found, a simple point and click training solves the issue. The deep integration into SAP fully automates the data extraction and eliminates manual keying.

Our experience to date with OpenText has been a resounding success. We’ve improved efficiency, made reporting easier, and aided compliance.“
Sven Wylock, Director | Technology / Information Management / Enterprise Content Management, Deloitte Consulting
Our invoice processing operations went from 100 percent paper-based to 100 percent non-paper-based and we were able to reduce our total staff from thirteen FTEs to only five. We’ve decreased invoice processing costs by over 50 percent, driven mainly by headcount reduction, but also due to instituting a more automated process that reduces errors.
Farrah Goldberg, General Accounting Manager, Bumble Bee Foods
One of the biggest benefits we’ve had is that statistically we can track and measure everything and anything now, and we never had that capability before. This has significantly improved our abilities to follow up on queries, provide faster responses, and ultimately ensure that we can provide better customer service at the end of the day.
Ron Silvestri, Group Manager, Shared Services, CBH Group.
The entire process now runs better and is more transparent. Through this we can concentrate more on active vendor management, something that we perceive to be part of general quality management.

Chris Woodhouse, Finance Lead Officer (SAP), Derbyshire County Council.
The most significant business benefits resulting from the implementation of OpenText ECM Suite for SAP Solutions are the speed at which an invoice is approved (minutes vs. days) and the improved ability to view documents and track invoices in the approval process. We can now also easily summarize our un-posted liabilities. These benefits were anticipated and achieved.
