5 WAYS TO WIN
WITH SMART DOCUMENT CAPTURE

There’s a powerful solution you can leverage to overcome the forces of chaos: smart document capture. Here are five ways smart document capture can save your AP department money—or even turn it into a profit center.

1. Rocket processing efficiency to new levels

With smart document capture, you can boost your efficiency in processing time by up to 50%. According to stakeholders at RC McLean who have implemented smart document capture…

What used to take us 3 days now only takes less than half the time. We only need limited supervision for the review and validation exceptions.1

2. Locate Data in Seconds, Not Hours

Accounts payable automation, including smart document capture, gives you the power to instantly access the AP information you need. Vopak loves the results:

4. Reduce Prep Time to Defend Against Audits

When it’s time for your AP team to plan for upcoming audits, smart document capture decreases the amount of time you’ll need to prepare.

For audits, it would take us two to three weeks to prepare all the documents. Now, it only takes us a few hours.4
