Automate AP for a Fraction of the Cost with ReadSoft Online

Kofax ReadSoft Online Cloud AP Automation Software

ReadSoft Online, Kofax’s powerful, cloud-based invoice processing software, streamlines the work of accounts payable (AP) invoice processing into a job that can be done by a single clerk.

Manual invoice processing wastes time and energy that could be put toward higher value tasks like accounts receivable, customer service and inside sales.

Bespoke workflow automation solutions enable organizations to streamline invoice capture, extraction and eliminate data entry – but some on-premise options can be costly, inflexible and take time to deploy.

Kofax ReadSoft Online re-imagines invoice processing, allowing teams to collaborate from afar while enjoying expedited invoice cycle times, improved supplier relationships, lower processing costs, and more effective cash management. It’s an ideal solution for local government agencies and businesses large and small, especially as implemented by ISSI.

Market-Leading Invoice Automation for AP

Manual invoice processing mires AP employees in paper, email and attachments, impedes payables and cash flow visibility, requires error-prone manual data entry, and takes too long. Paper invoices are easily misplaced or damaged and are time-consuming to retrieve from the recesses of a filing cabinet.

Invoice automation software can do the work of five or more AP clerks, automating 50-90% of the work – with only one clerk required to handle exceptions.

For organizations that process more than 5,000 invoices per year and don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on automation, ReadSoft Online is a cost-effective, powerful solution. Upfront costs are typically one-third the price of other AP automation software, and 20% less on an ongoing basis. Users are charged per invoice versus per page, which is useful for multipage invoices and utility bills.

For organizations of every size, automated invoice processing provides faster, more secure workflows, invoice language translation, and more. A digitized AP system also provides critical visibility into bottlenecks with a single repository of invoices and an up-to-date view of cash requirements.
