of its Partners at Annual Partner
Awards -

management and imaging software specialist, Eclipse Group, has
won Version One’s ‘New Business Partner of the Year 2011′

Document management system vendor, Version One, has acknowledged
the valuable contribution made by its business partners at its
annual Partner Sales Conference and Race Day, held this year at
York Racecourse. Version One presented awards to partner companies
and individuals in recognition of their outstanding successes
reselling Version One’s award winning technologies.

Julian Buck, Version One’s Managing Director, says, “The Eclipse
Group has made a major contribution to our success in a short space
of time whilst demonstrating a high level of engagement which is
vital to us achieving mutual success.”

Eclipse Group recently announced results of market research
which found that 75% of companies are still heavily reliant on
paper based invoicing processes, despite the significant risks this
brings to the business. The survey, which includes the views of
financial professionals from a variety of sectors including
insurance, financial services, industrial and automotive, also
found that 83% of respondents currently have to re-type invoices
into their finance system upon receipt into the accounts
departments rather than using a href="">document management
system, raising serious concerns over accuracy and

Commenting on the research results, Gary Waylett, CEO of Eclipse
Group says, “Given the efficient way most businesses are now able
to share information, it is surprising to find so many finance
departments are not using a href="">document management
solution and continue to re-key data between systems. In
addition to duplicating effort, and hence adding cost, re-keying
significantly adds the risk of errors which then complicates the
reconciliation process.”

Eclipse Group believes that the adoption of the latest document
management and imaging technology can deliver significant financial
savings. A document management system can reduce manual
intervention and electronic authorisation will enable finance to
focus attention just on the exceptions. A document management
solution will also allow staff overheads to be cut, as well as
greatly reducing or removing time spent answering queries,
searching for invoices and tracking authorisation across the

Waylett explains, “The integration of a document management
solution with financials can add greater control and improve
compliance, whilst also reducing risk - as long as effective
off-site backups are in place, organisations are no longer exposed
to the danger of off-site storage disaster with  paper
archives. Finance has played a key role in supporting the business
over the past few years. As organisations start to look for new
growth opportunities, now is the time for the spotlight to turn to
finance, to squeeze greater value from the department through
greater efficiencies and far better financial control.”
