ABBYY Flexicapture for Invoices

Manually entering information from invoices is a time-consuming and error-prone process. Invoice capture solutions can automate the process, but most require extensive set up and customization and can be expensive. ABBYY now offers a better solution: FlexiCapture® for Invoices — to Save Time, Deliver High-Quality Data to ERP Systems.

Paper is still the most common format for invoices and is likely to remain so in spite of all the EDI solutions available. That means the challenges in processing paper invoices aren’t going away. They include lost or missing invoices, lack of visibility into outstanding accounts payable, and failure to make timely payments. 


Given the $15 cost for manually processing an invoice, companies are eager to transition to capturing invoices automatically. Available invoice capture solutions reduce the manual steps, but many are cumbersome to implement, typically requiring IT experts to build a separate template for each vendor. That means a project with dozens of vendors can take weeks or months to implement. The result is that projects become too expensive; and even once they’re in place, adding new vendors can be expensive and slow.

ABBYY FlexiCapture – simple, accurate, automated invoice processing

ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices is a smarter, simpler solution. It dramatically shortens the implementation time for invoice capture projects. Using a single, generic document description, it captures much of the invoice data immediately and can be quickly tuned to increase accuracy. It also automates capture and delivers high-quality data to your ERP system. The new solution can be part of your workflow in just a day or two, requiring little professional services investment and minimum training for your staff. Invoices from different vendors have different layouts, so adding a new vendor to a tuned system typically translates into additional investment. But ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices uses a universal mechanism to extract
data from different kinds of invoices. 

The system is self-supporting and does not require an investment in development to add new vendors. In fact, adding new forms can typically be done in as little as five minutes, simply by adding a new vendor name and a couple of keywords.
