The Challenge

Agrovista wanted to replace the existing manual data capture with an automated process to save time and ensure that the correct invoice information was entered to the their IFS finance system. Their existing process required a paper copy to be printed and stored, taking up space and resources. The team were struggling with visibility of the invoice status and this impacted the time it was taking to resolve queries

The Solution

The implementation of Documation IMS provides Agrovista with significant process improvements and has helped to reduce manual invoice-processing costs. Furthermore, accounts payable staff have more time to spend on value added tasks.

The underlying document management and workflow technology provides Agrovista with a cost effective platform to expand the solution within AP and into other departments and business areas.



Intelligent Data Capture

Automating data capture reduces the overheads in manual entry, printing and physical document storage, providing faster and more accurate invoice information available in real time, enabling the organisation to run a paperless environment.

Immediate Document Access

All invoices and associated documents are easily accessible and available on-screen in seconds. The invoice status is trackable and helps to reduce time taken to solve invoice queries.

Improved supplier relationships

Instant access to data and images means supplier queries can quickly be resolved, and workflow tools ensure there are no delays in communications with suppliers regarding duplicate or rejected invoices, resulting in faster payment times.
