The finance operation within a business, especially that of an Accounts Payable (AP) team carries a high level of responsibility to ensure invoices are correct, approved and paid on time. Yet the tasks carried out by the AP Clerks are time-consuming, repetitive and sometimes error-prone.
With inSTREAM™’s Intelligent Automation, these tasks can be streamlined through AI, Machine Learning, OCR and RPA, delivering a simpler, more efficient invoice management system, improving processing time, compliance, supplier relationships and opportunities for early payment discounts.

"The real differentiator for me is inSTREAM’s ability to deal with a hugely complex environment. Because of inSTREAM we can deal with thousands of travel documents, from every country in every language."
As an AI platform inSTREAM requires human interaction to learn. Through an easy to use Graphical User Interface (GUI) inSTREAM collaborates with the AP team or who teach it where to find key information. inSTREAM learns from every document it processes, therefore as the volume of invoices processed increases, its confidence and accuracy improve and the amount of interaction needed with humans decreases, enabling employees to focus on the complex, value-based tasks.
