Van Ausdall & Farrar and Hyland Software join forces to tackle difficult Accounts Payable challenges

Van Ausdall and Farrar Solves Accounts Payable Challenges through their Partnership with Hyland Software

Online PR News – 21-July-2010 – – Indianapolis, IN - Van Ausdall & Farrar, a trusted Value Added Reseller of OnBase Software, is teaming up with Hyland Software, developer of OnBase, to address invoice processing challenges for organizations. Referred to as Automated AP Processing, the technology addresses the paperwork challenged AP department, in particular, the Receipt to Pay lifecycle. This cycle is defined as the period that begins when a vendor invoice arrives in the mailroom and ends when a voucher is created for payment in the organization’s ERP. This period is often plagued by inefficiencies that lead to high error rates, late payment penalties, missed discounts, lost documents, shipping expenses and increased staff requirements. Because these documents are not in the system yet, the finance department has very limited visibility into the liability that these payments represent.

OnBase is Enterprise Content Management software with tools to address accounts payable pain. The OnBase Automated Accounts Payable Solution addresses Receipt to Pay issues and results in fewer AP Department touches, automated matching and sorting, shorter receipt to pay lifecycles and increased visibility. Van Ausdall & Farrar is a complete solutions provider that addresses consultation, project management, rapid development, design, configuration, training and support services for OnBase Solutions
