ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices – FileNet P8 Integration

See how ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices can automatically export to IBM FileNet P8 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 how to connect to ABBYY FlexiCapture to FileNet P8.

What I’m going to do is load a few invoices here and we’re gonna let the software extract the details off of them including invoice header information and line items.

Once they’re completed, we can go ahead and take a peek at them. You’re going to see information is automatically extracted such as Business Unit, Vendor, our Invoice Number and Invoice Date. As I highlight these fields, you can see they turn yellow over here. Invoice Amounts. Most impressively, we were able to grab all of these line item details here off of this invoice.

We’ll go ahead and take a peek at the other ones and you can see here we automatically find the Business Unit, the Vendor Invoice Number, Date, et cetera. On our last invoice we can do the same as well. Once again, finding the Business Unit, the Vendor, the Invoice Type, whether it’s an invoice versus a credit note and the Amounts, the Currency and the line items.

At this point, we can go ahead and export them.

What the software is in the process of doing right now is connecting to IBM FileNet P8 and putting these documents into their correct object store that we selected.

Now that they are completed, I can open IBM FileNet P8, display all of the invoices, and here you see a list of the invoices that we just committed. You see a Title of the document, the Vendor ID, the Vendor Name, the Invoice Number and the Invoice Total. We can use these fields and this data to run reports or to find items at a later time.

And of course, we have a copy of the document, the copy of the actual invoice can be seen by clicking on the document and here is a copy of that invoice that we have in our repository.

As you can see, this saves us a bunch of time organizing our invoices and putting them into a repository that is reliable and searchable at a later time.
