Most organizations say manual data entry and the high volumes of email and paper invoices they receive are a big challenge.
Most organizations say manual data entry and the high volumes of email and paper invoices they receive are a big challenge. Compounding the issue:
Rillion’s Capture solution handles both email and paper invoice scanning with OCR and digital capture in the cloud. Our OCR invoice scanning solution processes files in any format: PDF, EDI, XML, Word, Excel, JPG, TIFF, XML, CSV and more. Accuracy rates for paper invoice capture are 95%, and for PDF/Electronic formats 100%. There is no added cost for suppliers.
Digital Capture in the Cloud – Emailed Invoices
A supplier creates an invoice in their ERP and generates it as a digital PDF, XML, CSV, Word, Excel, EDI or other electronic format, and then emails it. The invoice is sent to the buyer via a designated email address where automated and AI-driven invoice scanning and data capture software instantly reads the data form the invoice and extracts it into a database.
The invoice capture is fast and 100% accurate, because the electronic file format of the invoice has a data layer that reflects exactly what was input. This digital capture method has a high on-boarding rate by suppliers because the supplier just has to send the invoice to the specified email address and avoids incurring any costs to do so.
OCR Capture – Paper Invoices
Whereas legacy OCR invoice scanning technology is resource intensive (data has to be manually field mapped, as an example) Rillion’s OCR invoice scanning solution teaches itself to identify supplier invoices based on their layout and then automatically stores that information for future reference. The invoice OCR software also intuitively maps the data fields in each invoice and stores them in a database.
Traditional XML or EDI
A supplier sends an XML or EDI file to the buyer. This is good for buyers who are set up to receive it, but the supplier has to justify the cost of changing their billing application and infrastructure to send XML and EDI documents. EDI and XML have high data accuracy but a low on-boarding rate.
Invoice data is manually entered into a supplier portal by the supplier. This replicates the manual keying of data into your ERP, but the manual keying is left to the supplier. Good for small suppliers and has a very low on-boarding rate.
Keying invoice data into the ERP, printing out PDFs or other emailed invoices, storing large amounts of paper files, and staying committed to paper processes. Only sustainable for very small operations where automated invoice scanning is still often preferred.
What is OCR invoice processing?
OCR invoice processing is technology called Optical Character Recognition that extracts data from vendor invoices in order to avoid manual data entry.
What is OCR in accounts payable?
OCR (Optical Character Recogition) is used to scan and extract data from supplier invoices. Once the data is extracted accounts payable can process the invoice.
How do I scan an invoice?
You can scan an invoice using a scanning device or by taking a picture of the invoice and using OCR technology to extract the data.
What is invoice monitoring? Invoice monitoring in accounts payable is having an overview of where invoices are in the approval process.
How do I automate invoice processing?
Invoice processing can require many manual steps. AP automation can help automate these manual steps so that time can be spent on other accounts payable activities. Most commonly: data entry, routing for approval and audit practices can all be automated when using AP automation software.
