See how ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices can automatically export to SharePoint as a repository for invoice documents and metadata. Eliminate manual keying of data by AP analysts to allow them to focus on their core business functions rather than data entry.

Hello. Today I'm going to show you capturing invoices from ABBYY FlexiCapture to SharePoint.

Now what you see in front of you is a SharePoint site. And you can see here we have a library. And in this library, we have no files yet. So what we're going to do is go into ABBYY FlexiCapture, we're going to load some invoices.

We're just going to pick a few here. What the system is going to do now is review the invoices and extract the details that we want it to and that will include things like business unit, vendor, totals and line items for us.

So you can see here it's recognizing it and now it's completed so we'll go ahead and take a peek at these invoices here and you can see on the right, what the software extracted and on the left, a copy of the image that we had. You can see we capture anything form the type of invoice that we have to the business unit, the vendor, invoice number and invoice date, totals. If there's a purchase order, we can also look up a purchase order and do some validation on that.

And then of course, we have our line item details here. So let's take a peek at these other ones as well, and you can see very similar things. You know, different pieces of information that we extracted. And now that they are extracted, what we can do is simply export these. And when they export, we will have them directly inputted into SharePoint. And so once this is complete, we will go refresh our SharePoint document library. And you will see those in there.

Okay, they are now completed. What we would do, is we will go into SharePoint and we will refresh our screen and you can see there we have those invoices. Not only do we have a copy of the actual invoice that we can pull up but we have, if we go back here, a copy of the different metadata items that we pulled off including things like who the vendor was, invoice number, invoice amount, etc..

So that is FlexiCapture for invoices to SharePoint. If you would like to learn more or if you have any questions, please contact us.
