Invoice Data Capture for SAP R3 Announced by CloudTrade, an Advanced company

CloudTrade, an Advanced company, has announced invoice data capture for SAP R3. The cloud solution captures vendor invoice data with 100% accuracy.

CloudTrade, the market leader in document automation, has announced that invoice data capture for SAP R3 is now available. The cloud solution helps organizations with large vendor invoice volumes capture and validate invoice data. The technology provides customers with 100% data accuracy, a large improvement over legacy OCR.

Many companies struggle with vendor invoice data capture. Invoices are received in either emailed or paper format and the information is manually keyed in. Human error, missed invoices and the resources to perform this function can hamper the ability of accounts payable departments to operate efficiently.

The CloudTrade solution receives invoices in electronic format delivered through email and within minutes of receipt, the invoice is processed in the cloud and made available in SAP R3. CloudTrade’s solution guarantees 100% data accuracy because the data is extracted directly from the data layer of the document or PDF. Complex, logic-based rules are then applied to this data to provide customers with an automated, data secure file that can be seamlessly passed through SAP R3.

One concern when changing to new systems is the effect it has on suppliers. CloudTrade has no impact on suppliers because there are no infrastructure changes, software installs or third-party portals to log into. Suppliers send their electronic email to a specified address where the data is extracted and then forwarded to SAP R3.

“Clients appreciate the low impact on suppliers, and for suppliers the adoption rate is very high,” said Roger Hatfield, Vice President North America for CloudTrade, an Advanced company, “because most ERPs can output an electronic format PDF quite easily.”
