In a typical Accounts Payable (AP) workflow, vendors/suppliers may submit several documents for processing – invoice, Delivery Order (DO) and contracts. These can come in the form of fax, paper, email, PDF attachments, SMS through various channels.
Having to navigate through various documents is a time-consuming task. This is because for every piece of information that comes in, before it can be of value, an organisation has to look at that information, understand what kind of information it is, decide what to do with it, and then only direct it to the appropriate system or business process.
This understanding and deciding is usually done by a person, but doing this manually is very labor intensive, expensive, slow and prone to errors.
