ACI Automates Test Form Processing With UFC and ABBYY

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) is a leading authority in the concrete industry, and as part of its certification program, administers 35,000 tests a year. To capture the results, ACI relied on an outdated system requiring high maintenance and whose lifetime was nearing its end — until ABBYY FlexiCapture provided a fast, scalable, and customizable solution based on a modern future-proof architecture.

 

“FlexiCapture is extremely powerful and flexible. It has great scripting and we can design forms in whatever way we want.”

– Jason Pennington, Manager, Information Systems and Warehouse Operations, ACI

Wildman Business Group Automates Invoices with ABBYY

As a premier provider of corporate laundry services, linen and apparel, Wildman Business Group receives more than 40,000 invoices a year. But processing them manually was slow, error-prone, costly, and inefficient — until ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices enabled accurate and automated entry of invoice data into Wildman’s ERP system.

 

“The difference is night and day. Before FlexiCapture, invoices were stacked on people’s desks. Now they’re routed electronically the day they arrive and approval goes much faster.”

Claudia Keirn, Corporate Senior Accountant, Wildman Business Group

Continental Quality, a leading provider of outsource services to the automotive

industry, manually processed 3400 timesheets a month for employees deployed

on behalf of a major manufacturer. Slow and error-prone, this cost Continental

unacceptable amounts of time and money – until ABBYY FlexiCapture provided

an accurate, automatic, and speedy solution to timesheet entry and verification.

 

“FlexiCapture has definitely helped us be faster and more accurate.

And we’ve gone from six people entering data to just one.”

Jerome Scott, Vice President of Quality, Continental Quality

 

America’s leading supplier of Wheel Ends to OEM manufactures now receives over 200,000 paper invoices every year from its vendors. Manually processing the documents demands the time of twelve employees – a task that the company decided to automate using ABBYY FlexiCapture® for Invoices.

“Dealing with debit memos manually would take four people 3-4 hours a day. With FlexiCapture for Invoices, one person can do it in an hour.” EDI Group Manager

As the EDI Manager describes, FlexiCapture’s accuracy and flexibility play a key role in the project’s success: “We’re realizing near 100% accuracy with invoices processed through the system. And the flexibility of ABBYY’s solution is outstanding. It enables us to capture line items from virtually any invoice format – which is vital since every vendor uses their own form. With just three samples, we can train the solution on a new invoice.”

The EDI Group Manager also states the importance of ABBYY’s partner, UFC Inc.: “UFC showed us how to use FlexiCapture for Invoices to achieve our goals, using our own resources. The other provider wanted us to do it via their cloud system or let them handle the pre-processing – not what we wanted.”

He also sees even more benefits in the future: “There’s no end to the ideas people have for FlexiCapture. We can train it to put anything we need into a database and run business processes from the data. We couldn’t accomplish what we’re doing without FlexiCapture,” he concludes. “On a scale of 10, it’s at least a 12. And UFC was terrific. I have referred UFC to others and will continue to do so.”

When Southern Star Consolidated Gas needed a document capture application for their company they chose Quillix. The document capture software application processes scanned and electronic documents and commits them to FileNet through the MuWave QSX for FileNet. The system includes an engine which automatically creates barcode sheets for the separation of documents and batches called MuWave Barcode Generator

We are pleased to present this testimony from Noble House Home Furnishings:

Since finalizing the proof of concept project with UFC, Inc. for the IRISXtract OCR scanning software in April 2015, we have benefited from using the IRISXtract software to process our vendor invoices through our Quickbooks Pro Online system.

  • As designed, the IRISXtract software has reduced the amount of time, errors and resources we previously spent manually entering the data into AP and individually scanning and attaching the corresponding invoices to our AP billing system.
  • As our business continues to grow (39% sales growth in 2014), the IRISXtract software is allowing us to process a corresponding increase in the number of vendor invoices without incurring the cost of adding headcount to the accounting department.
  • We are also looking into applying this OCR software technology with other departments (logistics and sales) to analyze data from various 3rd party documents (i.e. customs and duties forms, bill of ladings).

Our work with Travis Spangler and his team at UFC, Inc. allowed the IRISXtract software to be customized specifically for our operations and capture the required data to our AP system. Travis and UFC were able to deliver on the expected results of the software capabilities.
