S4i Systems (http://www.s4isystems.com) is proud to announce that Lipari Foods, Inc. has licensed S4i’s electronic document management (EDM) package, S4i Express, to automate previously manual processes and migrate from current installations.

Lipari Foods is a regional wholesale food distributor located in Warren, Michigan. Lipari Foods distributes a wide range of quality deli, bakery, packaging, seafood, confections, grocery and food service products in more than 10 states in the Midwest and surrounding areas.

Michael Hegarty, Lipari’s Director of Vendor Programs sought to implement a document management system to minimize the amount of paper being handled in the office today. “Lipari is using pioneering methods in the way we will be allowing our users, including employees, customers, and vendors, to retrieve documents from within their current business applications. We will also replace manual methods with more efficient processes,“ said Hegarty. He added, “We were signed, installed and configured within thirty days with over a dozen document definitions completed. And with out-of-the-box API’s, we’re allowed to customize as many Retalix screens as we desire.”

“Retalix and S4i have a trusted partnership allowing Lipari to leverage both their current software and current hardware investment,” said S4i’s Director of Sales and Service, Susanne Moore. “We are thrilled to welcome Lipari into our family of happy Retalix customers. We are starting off the implementation with Desktop Capture, S4i productivity tool with proven capture technology by adding various sizes of Fujitsu Scanners and configuring this solution to ingest everything from manufacturing recipes to vendor contracts, insurance forms, HR documents and so forth. Lipari is also automating the complete distribution of invoices, credit memos, and statements to their customers. Purchase orders, vendor billings, and AP deductions for vendors are also being processed with this desktop capture solution. S4i allows Lipari to share, display and distribute documents up and down the supply chain by taking advantage of cutting edge paperless technology for a very fast ROI.”

Lipari selected S4i’s Express and capture products to electronically capture paper based proof of delivery Invoices, capture electronic spool files and PDF documents from price lists, credit memos, invoices, statements and other internal reports and distribute automatically. S4i’s WebView will make documents available for retrieval with ease of use from within Power Enterprise for employees, Power Net: Customer Portal for customers, and Power Net: Vendor Portal for vendors. Lipari will also take advantage of lifecycle features to archive reports and documents for long term storage.
