How does PaperLess software work?

  • Bringing Documents into PaperLess workspace

Paper invoices can be scanned directly into the PaperLess workspace by using PaperLess printer. When businesses receive invoices electronically via emails, use PaperLess Add Documents function to drag and drop documents from emails or computer to the PaperLess workspace. It is easy to organise and edit documents in PaperLess.

  • Automatic Data Capture with PaperLess OCR for Sage

PaperLess does more than invoice scanning. After scanning invoices into PaperLess, the PaperLess automatic invoice recognition feature extracts relevant data from invoices into the PaperLess workspace. PaperLess invoice recognition uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, which quickly extracts the relevant accounting data from the invoice so the accounting transaction is created for posting into your accounting application.

  • Online Invoice Approval

PaperLess enables businesses to edit, approve and post directly to their existing accounting applications such as Sage. PaperLess integrates seamlessly with Sage, meaning there is no need to give up your current accounting application when going paperless.

The PaperLess invoice scanning solution digitises all your paper invoices into one single workspace, runs invoice recognition and sends them for document approval, then posts them to your accounting application directly. PaperLess helps your organisation to complete the entire workflow within one workspace so your organisation can save time, increase profit and reduce risk.

  • Automatic Lookup of Document from Within Sage

Every time a transaction is posted into Sage, PaperLess will automatically attach the relevant document(s) to that transaction. This means that retrieval of documents can be done directly from within Sage by doing a simple look-up which will show you the document, all the accounting information as well as the complete audit trail of the approval process so that you can know who approved the document and what comments were made.

  • Can I work Online?

Using Remote Access, the PaperLess invoice scanning solution enables multiple branches to work more efficiently on the same server. This means invoice recognition can also be run on scanned invoices in PaperLess anytime and anywhere via the Internet. The secure Remote Access looks and feels the same as PaperLess workstation version. There are no requirements for terminal server solution. All it needs is an internet connection. Bandwidth requirement is low as you only view documents when needed.

  • What about Full Document Management Automation?

That is now possible with PaperLess Company Inbox, a cutting-edge software solution that allows you to fully automate your Document Management Processes from the moment suppliers or clients send you invoices by email until they are posted into Sage.

Company Inbox is a powerful system that enables Sage 50 Accounts, Sage 200 Business Suite, Sage 200 Extra Online and Sage 200 Standard Online users to automatically process all documents received by email by setting automation rules that are applied as soon as documents are received in Company Inbox email, turning document management into a fully automatic, faster and more reliable process.

Is your business still looking for an efficient invoice scanning solution? Then PaperLess is a valuable complementary solution for your organisation.
