We are not quite there yet — in invoice Nirvana. But we are getting closer every day, with solutions like e-invoicing based on EDIFACT or XML.
Read about the Jansson experience — “XML invoices trickles straight into Dynamic NAV”.
If, however, you expect the amount of invoices on paper and PDF to be declining. And maybe you are even uncertain how fast it will happen. Then maybe — only maybe — you should consider leaving it to us.
As one of our customers put it to me:
“No matter how brilliant it is, I simply don’t need software that helps my staff extract data from invoices. All I need is valid invoice data in my books, and payments in the bank. Period!“
With Next CloudScan you give us a PDF of each invoice — either directly from the supplier, or scan it from paper. Then we take care of the rest. All you get are verified booking transactions in your account payable system, and of course the invoice in Next. Either matched and approved automatically, or waiting for you to resolve a discrepancy.
No new software or hardware to acquire, no technology to maintain, no new software or staff to train. Only booking transactions in the ERP, and a fixed service fee. One step closer to invoice-Nirvana.
You may have heard about scanning services before. And yes, they may be good enough for scanning correspondence, or simple invoices where little or no data is to be extracted. The combination of software and cheap unskilled labor does not provide the data quality you need. That's not what Next CloudScan is all about. If this is your need, stick with them, and pass on the result to Next once they are done.
Next CloudScan is not only great software, endless fine-tuning, but also highly skilled industry knowledgeable operators that handles the exceptions — almost as good as your own people.
As stated before, Next CloudScan is not for everyone. And even if you may think it's for you, we may think differently. For us to provide the service at a satisfactory level, we need to secure that we have the industry knowledge to make the difference. Otherwise we'd be just another scanning service.
Are you wondering, if Next CloudScan is for you? Give me a call, or send me an email. Let's figure it out together.
“No matter what ERP systems you deploy in the future, no matter if it’s on premise or in the cloud, Next will integrate. No matter what procurement portals you team up with, and how you make purchase orders, Next will match them. No matter if you receive your invoices on paper, in EDIFACT, XML or whatever, Next will capture them. No matter if you want to handle the actual documents yourself, or leave that work to us, Next will support it. You will have to pay the invoices yourself. The rest you can leave with us.“
