Industry-Leading Capture Automation
MarkView includes industry-leading capture for invoice receipt, advanced recognition, data extraction, validation, and delivery to workflows and the ERP, reducing errors, time, and cost.
MarkView captures all invoice related information and performs automated PO matching and entry into the ERP system. Whether captured data consists of supplier names, invoice numbers, invoice dates, invoice amounts, PO numbers, or specific line items ordered, automated data extraction, matching and export to the ERP significantly reduces the number of data errors compared to manual data entry.
Advanced recognition goes beyond basic OCR to performing keyword and format locating, PO data matching, fuzzy database searches, and manual data review for exceptions, ensuring only the most accurate and highest confidence data enters the ERP.
Real-Time Operation Dashboards
Kofax MarkView AP Advisor is the industry's first real time financial process performance application that enables organizations to achieve world class efficiency and effectiveness in their AP processing activity. Designed specifically for finance executives, MarkView AP Advisor enables finance managers to strategically manage and optimize finance processes by providing an integrated perspective on AP operations — from comprehensive overviews to detailed activities summaries — that synthesize both process and transactional data. And, it takes things to the critical next step by combining real time process performance intelligence with the ability to immediately intervene, when necessary, to resolve process issues impacting departmental performance.
Self-Service Supplier Portal
Kofax SupplierExpress™ reduces costly inquiries to AP through web enabled self-service access to payment status information and the actual invoices. This information is available to line of business managers and suppliers, reducing costly inquiries into AP.
The accounts payable function has many key partners including business units, purchasing, vendors, employees, accounting, auditors and the CFO and controller. Satisfying the demands of all these stakeholders can be a daunting task at best and an unwieldy burden at worst. The constant inquiries, disputes, requests for information and correction of errors can grind AP productivity to a halt.
MarkView can provide all stakeholders access to AP related tasks without any help from AP staff. MarkView self-service is a powerful tool that reduces costs and improves service levels through shorter cycle times without compromising internal controls. At the same time, self-service minimizes errors by virtually eliminating the re-entry of invoice data which can easily lead to data entry and payment errors.
