Brea, CA (PRWEB) August 01, 2013

Ascend Software, a leading provider of enterprise business process automation and enterprise content management solutions today announced the release of their SmartTouch Analytical Information Recognition (AIR) solution version 2.0, giving them a sole-source vendor advantage for AP Invoice Automation. The product, that also supports mobile devices, offers numerous benefits which save organizations more time and money. It is operational in just hours and fully implemented in only days. Proficiency in SmartTouch AIR product administration is achieved in hours versus weeks of complex training required by other solutions. SmartTouch AIR rapidly processes unstructured documents, such as Accounts Payable invoices, with superior out-of-the-box recognition rates. It was designed and developed as a single solution that automatically and analytically captures images, extracts, recognizes and processes information from documents with faster through-put and superior recognition rates. Quality is improved instantly with automatic image cleanup, producing cleaner images. Batch options eliminate data entry and ensure consistent values across a group of documents. Time-intensive exceptions handling also are reduced dramatically. SmartTouch AIR’s In-line learning™ eliminates the need for significant manual intervention to train and retrain the software for each document format. This unique feature contributes to the solution’s consistently high recognition rates and is why it requires fewer resources to implement and operate. It also has an extremely fast ROI.

“We’ve designed SmartTouch AIR from the ground up to be one complete solution with a unified design that eliminates the multiple product, multiple installation approach required by other solutions,” said Lee Blattner, CEO of Ascend Software. “Our solution’s uniquely advanced architecture and proprietary approach to intelligently recognizing data on a document contributes to its advantages. It is easily implemented and a user can be trained in minutes,” concluded Blattner.

Additional benefits of SmartTouch AIR’s automation include a reduction in manual effort and headcount required for document identification, separation and data entry. Customers can process Accounts Payable invoices without needing to set up templates or train software. SmartTouch AIR integrates efficiently with Ascend’s wholly owned and developed Business Automation and Enterprise Content Management Solution, which provides a flexible workflow solution for both simple and complex processing. One of Ascend’s strengths, which customer benefit from greatly, is offering a one vendor solution that is well-integrated end-to-end.
