SharePoint is a comprehensive technology platform that can be applied to solve a number of business issues, and offers a diverse set of features that can be easily adapted for most any business challenge. Using some of the features & custom development we have built the following solutions within the SharePoint environment.

  • Account Payable (AP) Process System
    Accounts Payable, a unit of the Office of the Comptroller, is primarily responsible for processing payment documents related to Purchase Orders, Check Requests, & Vendor Invoices using our AP process system. For more details Read More

    Accounts Payable Problem
    A Fortune 100 company needed to reduce the cycle time of processing invoice payables. Prior to NDS, they sorted and opened the mail at which point their processors keyed the data into the accounting system before filing the invoices for long-term storage. It's a paper flow that requires significant resources, particularly for larger companies. In addition, they required an approval system with escelation capabilities as well as a process to take advantage of early payment discounts.

    Solution
    NDS provided a two-pronged solution. First, NDS assumed responsibility for all front-end processing, including collecting the invoices and all sorting, scanning, and indexing. Second, the resulting files were made available via a Document Management system, which allows users to access images and approve invoice payment electronically through a customized workflow.

    Outcomes
    • Instead of being routed manually, invoices are delivered electronically for approval.
    • PO invoices are electronically validated via integration with the accounting system.
    • Invoices are processed much faster and with more control. No more misfiled or lost invoices.
    • Invoice status tracked from the minute the invoice is uploaded.
    • Automatic re-routing of misdirected invoices to the correct business unit.
    • Vendor notification of all invalid invoices e-form filed with imaged invoice.
    • Early payment discounts have resulted in a 8% decrease in payables.

    Process Overview
    • NDS retrieves, sorts, and date stamps all invoices before scanning and giving each a unique image identifier.
    • Images are posted to the doument management system.
    • Invoices are processed from digital image and then accepted or rejected.
    • Accepted invoices are routed to the general image repository.
    • Rejected invoices are routed to the appropriate user/manager or vendor for correction.

    Advantages
    • No more lost or misfiled invoices
    • Enterprise-wide access to invoices
    • Reduced invoice storage expense
    • Faster data capture
    • Custom reporting of worker efficiencies
    • Sales tax audits take minutes instead of days
