OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition and takes care of all your labor intensive invoice handling, leaving your mailroom and AP staff free for other tasks. It handles the recognition of both paper and pdf invoices. Preparation, scanning and data extraction is all handled electronically. Once processed, invoices are delivered securely to Easy Invoice:
- All invoices are scanned (automatically from a specific invoice mailbox or manually in the case of paper invoices);
- The software recognizes the data fields and captures the data within it;
- All invoices are delivered to Easy Invoice for further processing.
OCR and Invoice Processing
Every organization knows the time-consuming process of manually processing incoming invoices. The registering and archiving of all the invoices is a very labour intensive process. In addition, the risk remains of invoices getting lost or forgotten in the stack of documents on your desk.
There are several ways to automate the input of your invoice processing. The most popular choice is e-invoicing.
If your suppliers are not ready to implement e-invoicing in their organization, OCR software is a good choice to automate the processing of paper and/or pdf invoices.
Our OCR software (Easy Recognition) is a very easy solution for receiving incoming invoices in a structured way. It recognizes and captures the content and exports it, for example, to Easy Invoice or your ERP system.
