Enable Better Visibility, Productivity, and Compliancy With Digital Accounting Solution 

In the world of Accounting, efficiently, accurately, and securely processing your business-critical records directly impacts the timeliness of payments, responding to supplier/customer inquiries, vulnerability to audits and financial regulations, and the ability to provide a snapshot into your company’s financial health. Unfortunately, critical functions like AP, AR, payroll, and vendor management can easily become reactive busy work when there isn’t enough time left over for making strategic insights and proactive financial decisions. If any of these issues sound familiar, your organization could use document management for accounting:
  • A decentralized receipt, capture, and management process for your critical records. Using an AP scenario, you may receive invoices across locations, via a mix of paper, fax, email; while in recent years email receipt has started prevailing, the lack of an easy way to capture and store means it is done manually and with little visibility - in some cases the digital files even being printed back out!
  • While accounting/ERP systems perform their primary functions very effectively, true document capture and management is more often a work-around than a feature. A company may have a scanning tool, a workflow software, an accounting platform, and a procurement system, none of which integrate, and still no central repository for all your documents (network drives or file cabinets don’t count).
  • If you rely on functions like e-mail, paper-pushing, updating a spreadsheet, or manually keying into separate systems before transactions hit your accounting system, it is difficult to prevent errors and ensure tasks are being completed on time. Meanwhile, the ability to demonstrate audit trails and separation of duties can easily become compromised.
