Six Benefits of Document Scanners for AP Processing

Despite the fact that the digital revolution is in full swing, huge amounts of critical business information is still communicated on paper documents. From invoices to travel claims, many businesses especially in healthcare, legal and professional services industries still face an overload of paper documents.

When it comes to Accounts Payables departments, processing paper invoices is constant part of the workload. A document scanner can help digitize paper workloads with the following benefits.

  1. Lowered operating costs – save space and money by reducing the  need for physical document storage 
  2. Reduced risk of loss – Paper can disappear without a trace, putting a business at risk. Digitizing with document scan can greatly reduce this risk.
  3. Boost productivity – Digitizing simplifies processes and speeds document searches 
  4. Anytime, anywhere access – Digitizing makes it easier for employees to access information remotely.
  5. Improved Security – Digitizing enables stronger access restrictions and audit traceability. 
  6. Improved disaster recovery practice – Digitizing enables routine back-ups and off-site, redundant storage
