Taskmaster APT's customizable interface highlights and displays each problem field automatically, making it easy to get accurate data fast in a single pass.

Automate Your A/P Process

Your paper invoices are not going away anytime soon. And the costs of processing them continue to rise - 37% in the past 4 years ( Source: IOMA's A/P Department Benchmarks and Analysis ). Taskmaster APT integrates with any document scanner to capture all the important information from the invoice digital image. Taskmaster uses best of breed OCR and ICR recognition for highly accurate capture of all key invoice data including: vendor ID, PO #, invoice date, line item and total amounts. This information can be automatically validated, then delivered directly into your accounts payable, ERP, document management or other back-end system.

Streamline Invoice Processing

Taskmaster includes Dynamic Natural Analysis (DNA) specifically developed to help you simplify invoice capture. DNA eliminates invoice set-up and enables single-pass verification for both your known and unknown invoice layouts. This speeds  your implementation and reduces ongoing maintainence. All detail line items for a new invoice layout can be captured and their location stored after the user  has identified the first line item, further streamlining the set-up process.

Typical Accounts Payable Workflow

Taskmaster manages invoice batches through a series of processing steps - a workflow - some steps require user's input, some are unattended, but all of them help Taskmaster APT deliver accurate payables information.

We support all leading production scanners, including Bowe Bell + Howell, Canon, Fujitsu, and Kodak, Panasonic, Visioneer, Xerox.

Image Enhancement
After scanning, invoices undergo automated image clean-up: line removal, de-speckling, "noise" reduction, de-skewing, and automated page flipping when necessary, all contribute to higher quality images for recognition.

Vendor Identification
Taskmaster fingerprint technology analyzes the invoice image based on the page geometry and then automatically identifies the vendor.

Once the vendor's fingerprint has been found, Taskmaster applies zone and location rules to first find the data on the invoice, then capture and extract all your required data fields, such as invoice date , invoice number , purchase order number , and invoice total . Taskmaster for Invoices is not limited to "header" fields and can also pick up line item details as well.

Validation - Verification
A customizable interface displays invoice image and recognition results side by side, highlighting fields and characters that need review. Math calculations on line items verify subtotal amounts by comparing quantities and unit prices. User-configurable rules automate validations according to an organisation's business rules, assuring, for example, that totals match the amount authorized for every purchase order, or that the invoice date doesn't exceed specified parameters.Verifiers have easy tp use features to correct recognition, including Click' N Key and Dynamic Details to enhance productivity. Intellocate automatically updates the fingerpoint library with updates to new and exisiting fingerprints.

Data and Image Delivery
Taskmaster supports a wide variety of imaging and accounting systems to enable multiple concurrent exports of invoice data and images. Export invoice data and images at any step in the capture process into any combination of ERP, database, storage, or enterprise-specific systems.
