"The training of the data capture solution was particularly effective. Together, the Payables Workflow package and Document Processing Service (DPS) save us so much time. Thanks to the DPS extracting data from supplier invoices, manual invoice entry is a thing of the past." 

- Bronwyn McRostie, Community Living Financial Accountant
