How Sage OCR is changing the way Finance Professionals work?
Speeding-up invoice processing times, invoice approval processes and invoice archiving routines are some of the many challenges Finance Professional from all business sectors face on a daily basis. The goal is to do more work without having to increase the headcount and that is where technology plays a major roles, with Finance Professionals using Sage having decided to implement document management software with built-in OCR technology so that invoice scanning and process routines can be speed up and accounts departments can work in a more efficient manner.
First of all, it is important to explain what OCR technology is and why is it becoming increasingly used by Finance Departments. OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition, a technology that automatically capture the data from invoices so that no more time is spent on manually keying in data. For this reason, OCR software are becoming part of the daily routines of any finance professional dealing with a large number of documents. By speeding-up invoice processing routines and reducing the need for manual data input OCR technology is transforming the way Accounts Departments work.
Depending on the accounting software package being used Finance Professionals need to make sure they choose the best solution for their needs. The preferred choice among Finance Professionals using Sage has been the Sage Certified Document Management solution created by Sage Developer Platinum Partner, PaperLess Europe.
PaperLess Document Management for Sage uses Automatic Invoice Recognition to extract the relevant data from invoices, so businesses can reduce manual data entry and increase organisation’s efficiency. This means that more time is left to work on the matters that cannot be dealt with by any software and that require the know-how and expertise of finance professionals who until now used to spend hours in front of a computer manually keying in data or on archiving and organising invoices
PaperLess Document Management Software integrates seamlessly with Sage 50 Accounts, Sage 50c, Sage 200c, Sage 200 Standard Online and Sage 200 Extra Online,so businesses can post accounting transactions directly from PaperLess into Sage using the PaperLess invoice recognition for Sage. They can also view the transactions with the relevant documents in Paperless at a later stage.
PaperLess Document management software is designed for easy usability. This means that Accounts Departments can utilise less skilled members of the team, controlling what these members can do by defining their roles within the user access rights. Higher skilled staff can then spend their valuable time checking the preparation of the accounting vouchers, before posting directly into your accounting application.
