Optical Character Recognition

AP invoice capture from OCR fully integrated to Oracle E-Business Suite


Invoice processing typically requires significant manual effort and addressing any subsequent keying errors is an inefficient use of valuable resources.


We have developed Version 1 OCR – a solution that utilises Optical Character Recognition technology to streamline the invoice entry and matching process. The solution caters for invoices received via email, fax, and post and means that invoices are processed in a consistent and robust manner, irrespective of source.


Utilising data capture software, Version 1 OCR identifies the pertinent data and automatically extracts and validates it against Oracle E-Business Suite providing matching where applicable. Discrepancies are highlighted, allowing manual override as needed.


The captured data is interfaced into Oracle E-Business Suite to create the invoice, while the invoice image is stored in a secured repository for subsequent retrieval.
