WHY IS IT BETTER THAN OCR INVOICE CAPTURE FOR SAP?
Many organizations use OCR to capture vendor invoice data and then manually correct and input the data into SAP Ariba. These AP scanning methods create both resource and integration issues, so many are forced to resort to PO Flip to create an Ariba-compliant invoice. OCR invoice scanning “interprets” the invoice data, so it doesn’t deliver 100% accuracy. With CloudTrade’s patented rules-based technology, we extract, validate and augment the invoice data from the data layer into an Ariba compliant format with 100% accuracy and post it straight into Ariba without human touch.
WILL THERE BE ANY COST TO MY SUPPLIER?
No. If they aren’t already, ask them to email you an electronic invoice or PDF – this will be a small change to their internal invoice process if any.
DO MY SUPPLIERS HAVE TO DOWNLOAD ANY SOFTWARE TO USE CLOUDTRADE?
No. Your suppliers send all their invoices to an email of your choice e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org. CloudTrade picks up the invoice and extracts the data, validates it and posts to Ariba primarily within minutes of receipt.
CAN A SUPPLIER SEND MORE THAN ONE INVOICE PER MAIL?
Yes. We can support almost all scenarios that a supplier can throw at us.
WHAT DOES CLOUDTRADE OFFER OVER COMPETITOR SAP INVOICE CAPTURE SOLUTIONS?
The most common invoice format today is the PDF or electronic invoice, sent via email. CloudTrade Invoice Capture for SAP Ariba extracts information directly from the electronic invoice inside an email (PDF, csv, docx) or via EDI. The data field information is taken straight from the data-layer of the invoice and delivered directly to SAP Ariba, in a compliant format, without the need for PO Flip and without human-touch.
That’s why CloudTrade can guarantee 100% data accuracy every time.
