"As the worldwide economic environment begins to show improvement, OB10 is well positioned to maintain its double-digit growth and expansion into new global markets," said Peter Watson, Senior Vice President, OB10. "More blue-chip organizations are discovering that by making e-Invoicing a core component of their back office accounts payable operations, they are able to streamline their processes, save money, better manage cashflow and increase efficiency in a sustainable, environmentally-friendly way."

According to IOMA's 2010 Guide to AP Automation, Andy Dzamba, APM, editor-in-chief of IOMA's Web site, AccountsPayable360.com, invoice automation is the best way to help an accounts payable operation to shine. "Automation not only helps AP make a positive impact at the company, it can also help you make your case when you want to get a project approved by senior management." Dzamba also identifies the top reasons for automating AP, including boosting the budget, enhancing efficiency, eliminating errors, reducing fraud and contributing to cashflow.

"By effectively leveraging our complete in-house, end-to-end implementation and program management services from our offices in Atlanta, London, Kuala Lumpur and Sofia, Bulgaria, we provide services that are unmatched. We're confident that we'll continue to deliver impressive results this year as more organizations look to implement an electronic invoice data capture solution. We finished 2010 on a very strong note and we see that momentum continuing into 2011."
