In this presentation we will discuss the Canon Information and Imaging Solutions (Canon) AP Automation Solution and implementation for companies with a global footprint. We will discuss the technology that was used, the strategic choices each company made, and the lessons learned from previously successful implementations.
The Canon AP Automation Solution utilizes PeopleSoft’s Open Imaging Integration to reduce costly integration build as well as minimize impact on continuous delivery. By combining a powerful Optical Character Recognition (OCR) engine with validated PeopleSoft data the system greatly reduces invoice processing time, errors, and risk.
We will discuss the context that led to previous companies’ decision to implement an AP Automation tool with Canon and Elire as partners. We will also discuss their implementation choices and how AP Automation fits within the broader picture of procurement optimization.
