Supply chain automation begins with digitization

Up to 90% cost savings

A survey of nearly 30,000 CFOs, found that capturing information from invoices alone can increase productivity per employee by more than four times.3

While in concept eInvoicing seems simple, implementing it is not. Among the challenges, enterprises may encounter difficulty rolling out solutions to business partners with different invoice formats and technical capabilities and addressing the changing eInvoicing standards and regulatory compliance requirements.

Today, most invoices that are sent electronically are in PDF format, leaving customers to extract data from the image and manually enter it into their accounting systems—leading to potential keying errors, reduced efficiency and slower time to value.
