Yes, that’s right…. Sage 50 and Sage 200 users have now available automatic invoice scanning so that invoices can be processed and posted to Sage with no need for manual data input. With the new invoice scanning solution for Sage all relevant data from the invoices is automatically captured and on posting to Sage invoices are automatically linked to Sage accounting lines, meaning that invoice retrieval can be done via a simple lookup from within your Sage workspace.
This new way of processing invoices in Sage is a result of the work carried out by Sage Developer, PaperLess Europe, who uses the latest methodology Capture>Process>Archive to capture data at the start of the document workflow process so that all your paper documents can be digitised and handled more efficiently online.
PaperLess invoice scanning digitises your paperwork as early as possible in your business processes saving time and money. Businesses can scan paper directly into PaperLess or drag and drop multiple file types from emails and your computer. The PaperLess edit TIF functions enable businesses to merge, split and re-organise documents electronically so working through a batch of paper documents is quick and easy.
Efficient invoice scanning software makes better workflow management. When businesses add a document to PaperLess, the document also has a unique number, which means your colleagues can easily locate a document at a later stage by entering this document’s unique number. Businesses can use the Scanning menu to add one or more documents at a time and control the scanner from PaperLess. Any twain compatible standard scanner at 300 DPI will work with PaperLess.
Not only document scanning software, PaperLess is also a piece of document storage software. PaperLess stores all your documents, both accounting and business documents, in separate folders in the PaperLess workspace so companies can keep their data secure.
All invoices processed via PaperLess are automatically linked to Sage accounting lines, meaning that retrieval can be done by doing a simple of the document directly from within your Sage workspace. Alternatively, PaperLess users can also use the accounting archive to search and view all their accounting documents.
PaperLess document scanning software uses two layers of OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology to extract the relevant data from your invoices by using Automatic Invoice Recognition. PaperLess handles multiple suppliers with multiple document formats, and also supports XML invoices. Automatic Invoice Recognition saves time and reduces manual errors so workflow management in your organisation is more efficient.
After running automatic invoice recognition, businesses can post accounting transactions with the relevant documents attached directly from PaperLess into their existing accounting applications.
PaperLess integrates seamlessly with Sage 50c, Sage 200c, Sage 200 Standard, Sage 200 Standard Online and Sage 200 Extra Online. The synchronisation happens instantly in the background. There is no need for companies to give up their accounting applications in order to go paperless. Colleagues can view the accounting transactions stored in the Accounting Archive folder at a later stage.
Well, for that you have available PaperLess Invoice Approval which allows you to streamline the invoice approval process within your company while, at the same time, ensuring that you have the complete audit trail of the approval process directly linked to your transactions both in Sage 50 and Sage 200.
As all other features of PaperLess Document Management software, the document flow is also seamlessly integrated with Sage. With a powerful set of automation tools you can set-up automatic workflows and notifications, meaning that documents can be brought into PaperLess, have their data automatically extracted by PaperLess Automatic Invoice Recognition and then based on the supplier, department, cost unit responsible or department have the documents automatically sent for approval.
PaperLess gives you access to a powerful online document management and approval software that gives you full control over the documents being approved, allowing you to speed-up, for example, the invoice approval process. At the same time, PaperLess Document Approval for Sage enables you to set approval rules so that you can be in control of what is being approved, the amounts users can approve and also the deadline for approval.
As in all documents processed via PaperLess, Sage users will have the complete audit trail of the approval process directly linked to Sage and accessible via an invoice lookup from within Sage. This way there is no more need to spend time on checking who approved what, on which dates and why certain changes were made since all this information can be retrieved directly from within Sage.
