Sydney, Australia — December 10, 2014 — Esker, a worldwide leader in document process automation solutions and SAP® software solution and technology partner, today announced that a high-tech, multinational manufacturing corporation headquartered in Silicon Valley has signed on to automate the processing of purchase orders (POs). The company will integrate Esker’s on-premises Order Processing automation solution within its existing SAP environment.
Esker was selected after demonstrating how the solution used OCR to electronically and intelligently capture PO data and push the corresponding sales order into SAP for further processing. Esker met virtually all of the company’s solution requirements, which included: OCR capability, straight-through processing, automated return material authorisation (RMA), direct lookups in SAP, and exception handling and validation.
The company anticipates significant benefits in two areas of order management. First, by eliminating manual data entry of sales orders, staff will be freed up to devote more time to customers. Secondly, orders will get into the supply chain faster with fewer errors, increasing customer satisfaction and offering greater transparency to orders shipping overseas. The company is also considering the use of Esker’s Accounts Receivable solution after recently acquiring another technology company for over $1 billion.
