Challenges in Data Automation


Data Automation



Invoice Automation

Manage the accurate movement of data from invoices into your business software.

Robotic Process Automation

The perfect integration for robotics and automation

Advanced and RPA integrations allow robots to access 100% accurate data to perform business specified tasks in accordance with enterprise goals and requirements.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is technology that allows a business to build robots to emulate tasks usually performed by humans within digital systems. RPA robots observe what actions are performed in the user interface and develop task lists, automating and repeating these tasks. The robots interpret, action responses and communicate with other systems to complete these tasks, therefore the quality of data supplied to them is imperative.

  • What is the cost of the service?

    The costs for service users are based on a monthly subscription cost and a cost per document transaction.

    The service is free to use for suppliers/senders.

  • Are electronic signatures required?

    In most North American, European, and Asia Pacific countries, electronic signatures are not a requirement of the local tax authorities. In regions where they are not needed, we do not encourage them, as they add cost, time, and effort for the supplier (and buyer) and only act as a barrier that impacts supplier adoption. In regions where electronic signatures are a requirement, we support them.

  • What is required for onboarding?

    The service has been designed with simplicity in mind, and to minimise the impact on your operations.

    All we ask is that you get your suppliers/senders to send digital invoices to an existing or new email address for us to collect and process. The data from each document will be extracted from the email and will be forwarded back to you for upload into your back-end system for matching and processing.
