Coronavirus – Continued Remote Support and Training Resources

00News March, 20

 

Coronavirus has had a significant impact on our partners. Many of our own support teams are currently working from home. For supporting UK customers, issues can be logged via the FIS / OSS system in first instance of via the EIM support email – as usual.

We are taking a number of actions that prioritise customer concerns as travel from mainland Europe to the UK is now restricted. Where possible FIS can provide training sessions and support customer issues remotely. FIS will also be creating further training videos for our technologies via the Help Centre.

If you have any specific questions regarding FIS technologies that are not covered on the FIS UK website, please email them to the generic email address:

How Can Technology Be Utilised to Read Supplier Invoices and Other Finance Documents

00BlogTags: August, 19

In any business process within an organisation, there is always a drive to make procedures more efficient, more effective, reduce operational costs and improve outcomes. The same drivers can be applied to the task of manual keying and data-entry tasks, when processing supplier invoices into an organisation’s Financial / ERP software.

Previously, an administrator would manually key-in the relevant information from a physical paper invoice into an ERP or Financials software. This task can be quite labour-intensive and likely to incur human errors.

Some larger invoices with many pages and several invoice lines can be very time consuming to administrate.

Invoice Reading FAQs: Part 2

00BlogTags: August, 19

Q: We receive an increasing number of invoices via email as attachments, do we have to print these and then scan – it sounds like a lot of work?

No, FIS/fci can take the attachments and process them without the need for scanning. This is an ideal solution because invoice data can be extracted without any human intervention.  In addition, the invoices are normally created directly from an ERP system and this makes the reading of the invoice data easier as fidelity and accuracy is not lost through the scanning process.

Q: What about recognition rates, how many invoices need manual corrections?

There can be a large variance in recognition rates and this is largely down to factors such as whether header (i.e. supplier, PO number, invoice number, total net etc) or lines (description, unit cost, number of units, net cost of line etc) are required. Typically rates of 90% + are common. The knowledge database always improves the recognition rates from the initial free-form recognition methods. FIS/fci uses a form of machine learning – becoming more accurate at reading data as the number of invoices increases.

Invoice Reading FAQs: Part 1

00BlogTags: August, 19

Q: The data on the supplier invoices is different for every supplier?

FIS/fci is designed to search for the required invoice data for every supplier – irrespective of the layout. The “Freeform Recognition” software works for of different invoice layouts for each supplier.

Q: How does the software know that the document is an invoice?

One of the first checks the software performs is to identify if the word invoice (or a translation of the word invoice – facture, fattura, faktura, rechnung etc) is present. The system is also able to recognise different company codes by a look-up of a reference file from the ERP system.
