Delray Beach, Florida and Winona Lake, Indiana (PRWEB) July 28, 2014
I.R.I.S., a leading provider of ’content to process’ technologies, announced today a partnership with UFC®, Inc. to deliver its robust and flexible data capture solutions to customers in North America. This partnership will provide UFC® with the complete line of IRIS products including the powerful business process applications for accounts payable and purchase orders featuring full integration with most popular ERP systems including Oracle® and SAP®. Customers seeking to also process structured and semi-structured documents will benefit from the utilization of IRIS’ forms processing technologies. The addition of the I.R.I.S. products provides UFC® with a range of immediate solutions for customers seeking to lower costs from their existing non-automated processes while concentrating upon their core business and not becoming experts in one more complex software application. The unique design of IRISXtract™ for Documents automates the extraction of data from documents without the need for ongoing programming expertise after implementation.
“Prior to our partnership with IRIS we had to choose from forms processing solutions which required the creation of data extraction templates both during the implementation and afterwards during production when new document types were added,” said Jim Hill, UFC®’s lead solutions specialist. “With IRIS’ powerful data capture technology we are able to provide our clients with outstanding speed and accuracy through a system which automatically extracts data from documents without the need to create complex templates. Our ‘AP Energize’ solution utilizes the IRIS invoice processing application in order to provide an extremely powerful yet rapidly implemented accounts payable processing solution.”
IRIS’ ’content to process’ solutions leverage their own OCR engine inside of the IRISXtract™ for Documents processing engine. This solution provides for a very rapid payback by greatly reducing the labor expenses associated with data entry as well as significantly increasing the accuracy of data verification. This technology combined with UFC®’s 20 plus years of document capture experience provide the means for organizations across the United States to take advantage of very cost effective and time saving software solutions. This results in the elimination of manual indexing of documents, and the automatic extraction of critical data contained within them.
“Processing paper documents including invoices and purchase orders remains a challenge for companies of all sizes. IRIS together with our partners are focused upon improving our customer’s operational efficiency by eliminating the manual, error prone data processing tasks,” said Ken O’Connor, Head of Partner Sales at I.R.I.S. Inc., a member of the Canon Group. “We are very pleased to have formed a mutually beneficial relationship with UFC® in which we are increasing our customer’s efficiencies in content processing.”
IRIS’ industry leading intelligent capture, classification and extraction technologies provide much higher data quality than is possible through manual keying of data from documents. The industry leading solution platform IRISXtract™ for Documents also provides the ability for customers to create their own custom solution through the use of the Solution Designer studio as well as ability to take advantage of built in scripting for a lower level of customization should that need arise. Together with UFC®’s expertise and the advanced solutions from IRIS, customers can enjoy increased speed and accuracy, higher levels of compliance with company procedures, as well as an overall lower total cost of ownership than competitive solutions.
