Invu Announces Publication of White Paper Demonstrating how Purchase Invoice Processing and Efficient Document Workflow can Automate the Payment Process

NORTHAMPTON, England, March 28, 2011 - Document management software provider, Invu www.invu.net has
released a White Paper on invoice processing entitled "Purchase to pay
(www.invu.net/purchase-to-pay.aspx) Automation - Overcoming paper in
an efficient and electronic world."

While many companies now use accounting or ERP systems to digitise and
hold all purchasing data, it has become apparent that these systems did not
computerise whole finance processes. They simply computerised the ledgers
recording the core transactions of the business. The process has therefore
not changed or become automatic.

The Invu white paper takes a closer look at one key area left incomplete
and not automated, the document workflow (
www.invu.net/document-workflow.aspx) from purchase to the point of
payment, and discusses the various solutions available to organisations
depending on size and available funds. Implementing EDI (Electronic Data
Interchange) is an effective solution; however this process demands
significant technology, effort and expenditure, the paper therefore outlines
the requirements and benefits of implementing a more cost-effective document
processing solution to automate invoices and reduce the volume of paper.

The paper demonstrates that a simple yet effective business automation
approach solely based on document capture, management and workflow can speed
up existing internal processes and compliment the investment in the company's
ERP system.

Stuart Evans, Chief Technical Officer, Invu, comments, "The white paper
highlights the reality that the paper and PDF invoice will be around for many
years to come, therefore there is an urgent need for businesses to improve
their efficiency. While it is understandable that few businesses have the
luxury of moving to a full EDI approach to purchasing, the white paper shows
that invoice process automation is the next best, and often the only other,
solution to take for organisations to remain both competitive and alive."
