Perceptive Software, creator of ImageNow enterprise content management software, today announced that HCA International, London’s top-rated private hospital group, has deployed ImageNow into its accounts payable department.
With six world-class hospitals and four outpatient medical centres in London, HCA International is turning to Perceptive Software’s document management solution to simplify invoice processing by reducing the number of steps within the approval process.
Perceptive Software’s patented LearnMode£ technology will integrate ImageNow with HCA International’s host application, Meditech. Complete ImageNow and Meditech integration will enable HCA International’s users to create reports for all invoices, allowing Chief Finance Officers throughout the organisation to quickly review financial information without the hassle and costs associated with duplicating and distributing large paper files.
“With 22,000 paper invoices being received and manually entered by AP each month, we were looking for a robust OCR scanning solution for both document storage and electronic approval routing that would take the pressure off our Accounts Payable staff.
Integration with Meditech, our core business system, was vital. Perceptive Software worked hard with our IT department to prove they had the technology to make this happen which made them stand out from their competitors.
After in depth planning and design phases, we staggered implementation with phase 1, non-PO invoices, going live in November 2008 and testing phase 2, PO invoices, from June 2009.
ImageNow has helped to improve our responsiveness to supplier queries as well as providing full visibility of invoices for analysis, audit and accrual reporting.”
